Athletes are required to dress out each day in their workout uniforms. We will require them to take home and wash their workout gear at least once a week. If you want to wash more frequently feel free, just be sure that they are dressing out in their proper shirt and shorts daily. A huge part of what we teach deals with proper hygiene.
What happens if my child forgets their workout clothes? There will be points deducted from their “suiting out” and “participation” grade if they fail to bring their workout clothes to school. I give at least twelve grades per six weeks so if a student forgets their clothes once, their average will still be an “A.” If a student fails to dress out three times during the six weeks, lunch detention will be assigned.
A student must bring a note from a parent/guardian if they cannot participate due to illness or injury. If a student misses three or more days of participation, a doctor’s note is required. The note needs to state the amount of time that the student is unable to participate or a “return to play” date.
Junior high students are changing and growing rapidly so I spend a lot of time discussing hygiene. It is important that they practice good hygiene regularly. Some kids may not be used to wearing deodorant, but it is age appropriate and absolutely necessary. I do not require showering after athletics, but I give the students time to do so. If students decide to take showers they will need to bring a towel, body wash, deodorant, etc. to keep in their lockers.
Students will be issued a lock and a locker. They need to memorize their combination and keep their lockers locked properly. We have a large number of teams and community members that use our gyms and locker rooms so it is extremely important that students keep their belongings locked up in their lockers.
What happens if my child loses their lock? Students need to notify me, it is possible that their lock has been turned in or someone may have mistaken it for their own lock. Majority of the time the locks re appear. If it does not the student will be charged $5 and another lock will be issued.
