Sundance P.E. Dress Code

All Sundance students are scheduled to attend PE one day each week. The following PE dress code will be enforced.

All students are expected to wear tennis shoes and remove cold weather items when participating indoors. When a student does not wear tennis shoes, he or she will be given the opportunity to wear a pair of tennis shoes provided if wearing socks and the size needed is available. If the student chooses not to use the shoes or is not wearing socks, he or she will sit out and receive a minus for class participation. Tennis shoes are soft-soled shoes that cover the toes, heel, and top of the foot. Heelys, boots, sandals, Crocs, Hey Dudes, and dress shoes are not acceptable. This policy is necessary to create a safe environment. Boots and other slick-soled shoes present a threat, not only to the person wearing them, but to their classmates as well. Tennis shoes provide the appropriate protection and support for the activities the students are expected to perform.

Cold weather items are meant to be worn outside and are to be removed upon entering the gymnasium. Removing cold weather items limits disruptions and maintains a safe environment. Students need to wear leggings, bike shorts, or shorts under their dresses or skirts on P.E. day.
