Important Physical Education


Students should attend all physical education classes.  Students should not be kept out of physical education for failing to complete their classroom assignments.

If students must be excused from an activity class, sedentary activities should be provided.  Even some form of written work relating to the ongoing activity can be assigned to the students who must be excused from physical education for illness, injury, or disciplinary reasons.

 Medical Excuses doctor note

Excuses from physical education should be written by the parent and sent to school with the child. The physical education teacher will honor such excuses.  Since physical education classes meet three times per week, excuses from the parent would suffice for one week, however, a note from a physician is required if a student must refrain from activity for longer than one week.

Appropriate Dress shoes

Appropriate dress for physical education classes means wearing comfortable clothing and shoes, which have rubber soles, are firmly secured to the feet; for the girls, wearing shorts or long pants is strongly recommended.  Restricting physical activity because of improper dress or shoes would be considered appropriate.
