PE Uniforms

Auburn Physical Education Dress Policy

To reinforce the importance of personal hygiene, we require that the clothes worn for PE be something other than what was worn to school that day. Appropriate PE attire includes shorts or sweatpants, a t-shirt, socks, and sneakers. No sandals or boots of any kind are allowed due to safety issues.

PE clothes must adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Shorts – at least a 7 inch inseam. We suggest dark colors like black, gray, navy. No pockets preferred.
  2. T-Shirt – must have a crew neck. We suggest school colors like light blue, navy, or white. No pocket preferred.
  3. Sneakers – non marking sole any color.
  4. Socks – any athletic style or color.

We strongly suggest the following guidelines concerning PE clothes:

  1. Designate a “gym suit” to use every day and write name prominently on each clothing item to help us identify any lost items. Use this “gym suit” all year.
  2. Purchase / use inexpensive, generic clothes.
  3. Use gym locker to store clothes and bring home at least once a week to wash.
