     Parent Information:  Your child has Physical Education class every four days.  South Fork students have P.E. every three days. The classroom teacher sends home a calendar with the P.E. days marked.  It is important that your child dresses appropriately on P.E. days to allow freedom of movement and full participation.  Proper dress includes: tennis shoes, pants, shorts, or skorts (no dresses or skirts unless shorts are worn underneath).  Tennis shoes should be laced to the top and tied snugly on the foot.  Shoes that are not allowed are: sandals, boots, dress shoes, or open toe or open back shoes.  Students who are not dressed properly will walk during their P.E. class time because of our concern for their safety and the safety of their classmates.
    Grading Policy:  It is very important that students participate in every physical education class in order to develop physical fitness and learn skills and rules. 
       -Students will receive 10 points each time they are present in class, dressed appropriately, and participating to the best of their ability. 
       -Students who are not wearing tennis shoes will receive only 5 points and walk during class because of our concern for their safety. 
       -If a student is absent from class they will receive 0 points. 
       -Students who are excused will walk.  If this is not possible because of injury, they will be given a written assignment. 
       -Students who do not follow directions or show effort will have points deducted.
