PHYSICAL EDUCATION UNIFORM
- School Uniform - Students may purchase their PE clothes through the PE department. Shirts: $10, Shorts: $10, Sweatpants $15, and Hooded Pullover Sweatshirts $20.

- Alternate Uniform - Students may bring an alternate uniform from home. Alternate uniforms must be plain gray only (NO PRE-PRINTED LOGOS OR WRITING). They may consist of a t-shirt (crew neck only, NO V-NECKS), shorts, sweatpants, or sweatshirts, For safety reasons, NO JACKETS or anything with zippers or buttons are to be worn out to PE as they may cause injury during activity. Sweatshirts must be pullover in style, they may have hoods attached if you wish but are not required. All P.E. clothing must be designated as such thus clothing for PE will be marked “NVMS PE” in 2-3 inch lettering across the chest and on the left thigh of shorts and sweat pants. Students will also write their first and last name on all P.E. clothing with a black permanent marker. Name should be written at least 2 inches in size across the stomach of the t-shirt/sweatshirt and on the left thigh of shorts or sweatpants. This will help to recover lost clothing.
