                2. Participate in the activity of the day.

II. Unit Grade: Swim Stroke Assessment: Points to be determined each unit.

Each student earns a unit grade for each physical education unit. These grades are earned in a
variety of ways. Due to the importance of swimming our swim unit points are as follows:

1. The unit is graded daily. Consideration is given for those who are not able to swim on a given
   day. (See excuses below).
2. They will earn daily participation points (10 points) for being in the pool and doing the
   required activity.
3. With individual improvement being the focus, tests will be given to assess that improvement.

III. Excuses:

1. A written excuse explaining why your child is unable to participate and how long this will last
    is required. This will allow the student’s swimming points to be made up.
2. Swimming days can only be made up by swimming. Make up days and times are by
    appointment. It is the student’s responsibility to set up an appointment with their teacher
3. If the student has no excuse they will not be allowed to make up their swimming for that day.
   Exceptions will be handled on a case by case basis.
4. Excuses are limited to menstrual cycle and physical disability.

IV. Alternative Activity:

An alternative activity may be assigned as stated in the Physical Education Policies.
