Changing Out & the Locker Room
What Do I Wear For PE?
Am I Expected to Change Out Every Day?
Sixth Graders are expected to change out each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. With the shortened schedule, it will normally not be necessary to change out on Fridays.
Seventh graders also will not normally change out on Fridays. There will also be five weeks where 7th graders will meet in the classroom to cover the material on the State Health Curriculum. These weeks are strategically planned in the schedule to blend content and to account for the traditional bad weather days.
Does It Affect My Grade If I Choose Not To Change Out?
For those who choose to not change out on the designated change out days, points will be deducted from their responsibility grade (Which is Strand 4- Cooperative Skills and Positive Personal Behavior). See the grading page for more information.
Are There Showers and Changing Stalls in the Locker Rooms?
There are showers and changing stalls in the locker rooms. The showers are not required, but available for you to use for hygiene purposes. The changing stalls are available for additional privacy while changing. Please be respectful to those using the showers or changing stalls by giving them personal space. There are also restrooms in the locker rooms. Please do not use the restrooms as changing stalls.
How Long Do I Have To Change Out Each Day?
Because the locker room is to only be used for changing clothes and using the restroom, we limit the amount of time students are in there to reduce problems and increase safety. Students are given 4 minutes to change into PE clothes and 5 minutes to change back into school clothes.
When Are the Locker Rooms Open To Drop Off Or Pick Up Clothes?
The Locker Rooms will be open before school from 7:30-7:40 and after school from 2:00-2:10. The locker rooms are not open during lunch or between classes.
What is Not Allowed in the Locker Rooms?
The locker rooms need to be a safe place. It should be a place for changing clothes and not much else. If you choose to not change out for the day, you should not be in the locker rooms. The following things are not allowed in the locker room:
Horseplay, loud noises, or the throwing of any objects
Cell Phones or Backpacks (Cellphones should be off and in your backpack, not in your pocket! Backpacks are to be placed in the front row of the bleachers in the gym)
