*This dress code is subject to the discretion of the faculty and administration.

 

Girls may wear modest athletic shorts for P.E. class. The procedure will be that they may wear them under the skirts. The girls will go to the restroom to remove the skirt and then return to the restroom to get back into “uniform.” The athletic shorts may not have writing on the rear end and will not have holes. Also please choose something loose fitting. If the shorts are immodest, the young woman will need to wear the skirt. If a girl chooses to wear the school uniform shorts, there will NOT be a need to change. Please mark a name in the skirts as there could be some confusion when the girls are getting back into “uniform.”
