Students may be excused from PhysicalEducation for the following reasons:
- Short-term illness or injury lasting no more than one week – A note from a parent/guardian or school nurse is sufficient
- Long-term illness or injury lasting more than one week – A letter written by a doctor excusing the student from activity.
- Class Trip or other School Function – A pass or alert must be provided to the teacher before they may be eligible to be absent.
Students who are unable to participate inclass activities due to injury or illness will be placed on a modified PhysicalEducation program in which they will be required to complete assignments inorder to be eligible to receive credit for the activity, unit and/or quarter.
Students will be graded through a combination of summative assessment within each unit of study, a Daily Rubric of Personal and Social Responsibility as well as through their Fitness Testing.
