The PE department at New Kent High School has set up the following policy to clarify decisions regarding dress and outdoor participation in PE.
Normal PE dress code will be enforced year-round regardless of weather conditions as we have ample gym space and a schedule that allows us to stay in during months of the year when weather is extreme. Normal PE dress code is a regulation NKHS PE department gym suit, which includes a short sleeved t-shirt and elastic waist shorts. Students will also be required to wear running shoes and socks, of any length. Students may opt to wear a sweatshirt with (or without) a hood but will not be allowed to wear jackets, coats, anything with zippers, sweatpants, leggings, hats, gloves, sunglasses, etc.
Students will not be expected to go outside IF THE HEAT INDEX IS ABOVE 100 DEGREES FERENHEIT OR WIND CHILL OR BELOW 50 DEGREES FARENHEIT. This decision will be according to the www.weather.com where the website lists the "feels like" conditions for zip code 23124.
