HEALTH AND FITNESS SAFETY

 First and foremost, I can't emphasize enough that proper footwear is a must for the safety of your child and the safety of others in class.   Please have your child wear a closed toe athletic shoe with laces or velcro straps on days they are in the multi-purpose room or gym for Health and Fitness.  Please, no sandals, flip flops, Crocs, rain boots, dress shoes, cowboy boots,hiking boots, party shoes, and shoes with hard soles and/or heels.  Suggested clothing would be loose fitting tee shirts, loose fitting jeans/pants, shorts or sweatpants.   Also, if your child is ill or injured, or recovering from an illness or injury,  please send a signed note to that effect.  I am more than happy to accommodate for illness or injury.   Go Comets!
