    All physical education students need to have a padlock that was passed out in their physical education class.  These padlocks are required to be on your assigned locker at all times. No other padlock may be used, or they will be removed.

     

      • Check to be sure your locker is locked at all times.
      • Do Not share your combination, locker, or P.E. uniform with anyone.
      • All athletes and spirit squad members are required to participate in physical education the day of the game or practice or they will not be allowed to participate in the game or practice.
      • If something happens to your locker, see an instructor right away. Do not take another locker without first getting permission from an instructor.
      • We will conduct periodic random locker checks will be done on both sides of the locker room. If your son or daughter is not in their correct assigned locker they will lose one full letter grade off their quarter grade.
      • We recommend that you do not bring large amounts of money or valuables to class.   If you have something of value do not hesitate asking your instructor to hold it for you.
      • We strongly urge students to not leave anything outside the locker, including backpacks.  The Physical Education Department is not responsible for any items missing (shirts, shorts, books, etc.
      • Athletic uniforms are not permitted in physical education classes, only DHS Physical Education clothing is permitted
