Latex Allergy

Students may require modifications to be able to participate in physical education. One important factor to be aware of is that latex is often used in making PE equipment. This may be important if a student has an allergy or should refrain from using latex materials. Below is a link to a guide that lists some of the most common objects containing latex and offers some alternatives. (It is not meant to be a comprehensive listing.)
