MUSTANG MIDDLE SCHOOL
Strength and Conditioning
As Mustang Middle School’s Strength
and Conditioning instructor, I am greatly concerned with your child’s wellbeing
in my classes. I feel that it is my
responsibility and duty to provide a safe learning environment for your
child. Therefore, in establishing the
policy and participation guidelines for my class, I set rules with your
son/daughter’s utmost health and safety in mind.
IT IS YOUR CHILD’S
RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW AND ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING RULES:
– Leave your cell phones in your lockers, they are not allowed in Strength and
Conditioning. DO NOT have them out in the locker room for any reason! The only
exception will be on our long running days.
Athletic clothes should be neat and clean.
I recommend that you write your child’s name on all items brought for
Students will not be allowed to wear
the same clothes for Strength and Conditioning that they wear to school.(That’s
SHIRT – T-shirts with sleeves and a regular neck line are the only shirts
allowed. Guidelines in the student handbook will be followed. T-shirts must be long enough to tuck in.
SHORTS – Shorts may be cotton, knit, or mesh with an elastic
waistband (no zippers or buttons). Student dress code should be followed
SWEATS – Students may wear sweat shirts and sweat pants when going outside
during cool weather. At no time will
yoga type pants be allowed.
SOCKS – You must wear socks to class every day.
SHOES – Students must wear athletic type shoes in class. No
skate boarding shoes. All shoes must
have laces and be properly tied for class.
During indoor units, please make sure that the shoes have non-marking
HAIR – For safety reasons, hair that is long enough to be pulled back must
be secured with an elastic band.
Barrettes or headbands may be used to keep long hair out of the eyes.
JEWELRY – For safety reasons, there is no jewelry of any kind
worn during Strength and Conditioning.
Students might want to have a container in their locker to hold the
jewelry while in class.
Lockers with combinations are issued to secure clothes and other

GUM, CANDY, ETC. – Absolutely no gum, candy, or other food items in class or in the
gym/locker room area.
athletes, these students should be hydrating frequently. So, bringing a water
bottle to school is a must. No students will be allowed to go to the water
fountains during class. Students need to ensure that water bottles are full at
the beginning of class. I bottle filler is located right outside of the locker
Students are expected to be in the gym/locker room before the tardy bell
rings. They are expected to be properly
dressed and sitting in assigned row ready to participate within four minutes
after the tardy bell rings.
ILLNESS – If
your child is sick or injured and cannot participate in Strength and
Conditioning, they must have a note from you to excuse them from participating
in the day’s physical activity. The note
must be dated and addressed to me explaining why the student cannot
participate. After three days of
non-participation, the parent must make verbal contact with either the
instructor or the school nurse to discuss the situation, and/or make
arrangements to accommodate the student while they are sick or injured. Students who fail to dress out without a
written excuse from their parent, will lose daily points, not be able to
participate in the day’s activities, and may have a written assignment to

Strength and Conditioning Grading System
It is my expectation to have each student participate to the
best of his/her ability each and every day.
The policies and procedure guidelines are to be followed by
I am very happy to tell you that students very seldom earn
anything other than an A in my class provided they put in the work.
The grading system is based on a combination of daily
points, recorded as a weekly grade, and end-of-unit skills tests. Points are awarded each day for arriving to
class on time, dressing out correctly, participating in the day’s activity, and
abiding by the rules established for the weight room and the locker room.
Grading Scale –
Ten points per day in class
The following are examples of some of the most common ways
that students may lose some or all of their daily points, as well as, some of
the possible consequences that the student may face:
to dress out and not participating - loss of ten points
to dress out but participates in activity – loss of five points
tardy – loss of two points
candy or other food items – loss of five points
– loss of up to ten points, having to sit out of the activity
to secure long hair – loss of 2 points
jewelry in class – loss of 2 points
Points lost for being absent may be made up by completing at
home work outs to be signed by parents. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET MAKE UP
