York PE Uniform Requirement:
For the 2020-2021 school year, due to COVID, locker room use will be prohibited. Students need to be prepared daily with proper attire and shoes as a requirement for daily PE participation.
PE make up policy
If a student cannot participate in a given PE activity or assessment due to a variety of reasons they can make up their missing points. The student will receive a 0 for that daily activity, but is offered the opportunity to earn these points back by completing make-up opportunities (retakes). Examples of reasons a student would need to make up activity points include daily absence, not being prepared for class with proper, safe attire, and/or suspension or detentions.
Students will need to complete a make-up opportunity equal to the specific day activity for each day they were not prepared for PE to earn their 4 daily engagement points or 10 point fitness days.
Relearning opportunities/make-ups will be based upon the specific daily activity and learning target the student missed as follows:
Complete an Article Review Assignment within 3 weeks of the excused absence
Complete a Community Group Fitness class and reflection sheet (See below).
Complete a SEL approved activity (Ex. Volunteering for a community program, developing a kindness activity, or participating in a leadership training/activity). Please discuss with me.
