Physical Education in the time of the coronavirus. What a time in history! As we get back into a new school year, there will be some changes.
We have a new "outdoor gym," painted on the soccer field. Unless it is raining, or blustery enough to impact kids' health & safety outdoors, we will be learning outside.
Hiking boots or rainboots are great for the fall
Snowboots, snowpants, winter coats, hats & gloves will be needed in winter
Students are still expected to keep a pair of indoor PE shoes in their classroom.
If their shoes/socks get wet, they can wear these PE shoes indoors
If weather moves PE inside, they'll need indoor PE shoes for the gym.
Our water fountains are off-limits this year. Students will need to bring their own water bottle to class, and can also bring it to PE. (We sure get thirsty!)
We use limited equipment in PE. Students will sanitize hands before & after they use any equipment in class.
As we are a PK-2 school, students are not required to wear masks, but are encouraged to do so.
During exercise, it can be uncomfortable to wear a mask, so students have their own hula-hoop outside of the playing area to keep their masks, coats, waterbottles, and anything else they don't want to wear/hold during activity.
