Mr. Etter's Classroom Expectations



North Mac Grades 3-5 Physical Education Rules and Expectations

Face to Face Learning

Objective:  The objective of PE is to achieve health and fitness through exercise and play.   Physical fitness, rules, game strategy, cooperation and sportsmanship are stressed.

Grading: Grades will consist of a 3 point daily grade.  Points will be subtracted if a student fails to participate, wear tennis shoes, and cooperate. 

Masks/Social Distancing: While participating in PE outdoors masks do no not have to be worn. Students must follow 6 feet social distancing. While participating in PE indoors masks must be worn. Students must follow six feet social distancing.

Injury or Illness: A student is allowed three parent notes per semester to be excused from PE.  Any illness or injury lasting longer must be excused by a doctor along with a note stating restrictions and length of excuse.

Tennis Shoes:  Students must wear tennis shoes every day to PE class.  If a student does not wear tennis shoes that particular student will not be allowed to participate in class. The student will also receive zero points for that day in PE. Safety is the reasoning behind making sure all students are wearing tennis shoes.

Restroom Passes:  Students may use the restroom in emergency situations during class.  Please use the restroom before class starts.  NO ROAMING THE HALLWAYS.
