Physical Education Procedures
Physical education classes are scheduled three times per cycle. Since physical education grades are based on active participation, students are only excused from participating in physical education for medical reasons. Students experiencing health problems are expected to dress and participate to the best of their ability. Serious health problems that are physically debilitating must be documented by an attending physician, with specific notes as to the extent of the student’s ability to participate. Physician’s notes are to be given to the school nurse.
Detailed expectations for physical education class will be provided on the first day of class by the teacher. One such expectation is that students will come prepared to dress in clothing appropriate for physical education class, other than that which is worn to school that day. Teachers will define what is considered appropriate clothing for class.
