The Swimming Competency test will be administered on the following date:  Thursday, May 5th at 6:30 AM.  Students should plan on a minimum of 1 hour for testing.  This is a very comprehensive test and absolutely no instruction will be given prior to or during the test.
Students MUST pre-register for a test session by calling RHS at 402-331-7373, and sessions are limited to the first 12 students to call.  Reminder: passing this test only waives the swimming classification for graduation, it DOES NOT award any credits, the 2.5 credits must be completed in another PE course.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Hartfield.
