    For a student to be excused from participation he/she must bring a note from their parent/guardian stating why activity should be limited or avoided.  Their excuse will be honored for a maximum of 3 days if requested.  Anything over 3 days will require a doctor’s excuse (the number of days, maximum of three, must be stated on note).  THE STUDENT MUST STILL DRESS OUT EVEN THOUGH AN EXCUSED NOTE IS PROVIDED.  An alternate assignment will be provided.

     

    The note must include:

    Student’s Name

    Date or dates to be excused

    Reason

    Phone Number

    Parent, guardian or physician’s signature

     

    Locker/Locks

    Students will be assigned a locker and a combination lock for their clothes.  The combination lock must be returned at the end of the course.  If the lock is lost, the student must pay a $6.00 fineIt is a student’s responsibility to secure their belongings in their lockers! 

    BYOD:

    GISD has moved into the Bring Your Own Device program and we want to make sure all student property is protected while in PE.  Devices will not be used during PE class.  We would prefer students not bring devices into the locker room.  If a student must bring in their device, then it must be turned off, not visible, and it is the student’s responsibility to secure it in their locker.  The coaching staff and school are not responsible for items left unlocked.

     

    We are looking forward to a wonderful year!  Please feel free to contact us for any reason.
