Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our Physical Education program at Wemrock Brook School offers a variety of activities both of individual and group participation. We would appreciate your cooperation in helping us provide a healthy and safe environment for your children.

To keep our experiences safe and healthy, we have developed the following safety rules:

Clothing: Comfortable fitting, preferably clothing made for activity.

  1. Shoes: Sneakers with rubber soles, skid proof, arch support, with ties or Velcro to be secured properly. Slip-ons should not slip off!
  2. Other factors to insure safety and prevent injury:
  3. **No gum , food, or candy.

**No jewelry – watches, rings, bracelets, long earrings, or chains.

**Eyeglass guards are recommended.

If your child is medically excused from gym class, a note from a parent or doctor is required.

    1. The note must be presented to the nurse the first thing in the morning to obtain a gym excuse.
    2. Parents may write an excuse for a child for a slight injury, sickness, etc. for one or two (consecutive) days. After two consecutive days, a doctor’s note is required.
    3. If injured during class, student must report the incident to Mr. Peck or Ms. Petracca immediately.

Students grades will be determined based on the following:

  1. Participation/Effort
  2. Behavior/Attitude/Sportsmanship
  3. Achievement of Skills
  4. Subjective/Objective Testing
  5. Special Projects
