SWIMMING

April 5, 2017

Dear Parents,

Starting Monday, April 10, the Knightsen swimming pool will be used during school hours for grades K-8. Please remember that our dress code expressly states one piece swimsuits only. Excessively revealing swim suits are prohibited.

We will inform you if there are any changes to the assigned day for swimming.

All students are expected to participate in swimming instruction.  The program counts toward their P.E. grade.  Students who are unable to swim will be assigned an alternative P.E. program or assignment.  Students’ grades will be affected if they do not participate in swimming or the alternate P.E. program.

Students must bring:  SWIMSUIT, PLASTIC BAG, TOWEL, SWIM CAP OR TIE SHOULDER LENGTH HAIR

Students should place street clothes in the plastic bag they bring so all of their belongings are organized in the dressing area.  After swimming, students are to change into their street clothes.  Students should put their names on their plastic bags….no one is to bother anyone’s property.  Please return the permission slip no later than next week by the swim day of your student.  Students without a permission slip will not swim and their P.E. Grade will be reduced.
