Dear Parents and Guardians of Students in Grades 5 and 6,
As we continue to fine tune plans for the 2021-22 academic year, we would like to provide you with some information regarding the Physical Education and Athletics program. Please note, specific COVID-19 health policies and protocols related to Physical Education and Athletics will be shared in the School’s reopening update scheduled for later this month.
We consider the Physical Education and Athletic program to be an important component of the development of every student. Students in Grades 5 and 6 will have P.E. daily and are expected to participate in all activities.
Students in Grades 5 and 6 will not be changing for P.E. and will not be using P.E. lockers. Therefore, students should come to school wearing clothes and sneakers appropriate for engaging in physical education activities. RCDS-branded physical education clothing is optional in 2021-22. Those interested may purchase RCDS-branded attire online anytime at the Amerasport Online Store.
Students in Grades 5 and 6 have the opportunity to participate in two after-school athletic programs. Field Hockey (Monday/Wednesday after school, 3:30 – 5 p.m.) and Football (Tuesday/Thursday after school, 3:30 – 5 p.m.) will begin the first full week of school. Please be on the lookout for registration information in the back-to-school email scheduled for August 6.
Thank you and have a wonderful summer!
