The State of Texas requires that all students take physical education. Students will be required to purchase a standard uniform of shorts and T-shirt. The PE department will provide information regarding the purchase of the items. The student must also provide appropriate shoes and socks. If a student is to be excused from physical education because of illness or injury, he/she must bring a written request from the parent/guardian or physician. Excessive absences (3 days) will require a note from the doctor. The physical education department will provide you with information regarding athletic guidelines and policies.
