POLICIES, PROCEDURES and GRADES for PE 1 and PE 2
STATEMENT: We believe that one’s physical fitness contributes to an
improved quality of life. We encourage students to establish habits
that will promote a lifetime of fitness and health. Students will be
encouraged to be critical and informed thinkers, as well as effective
communicators. Students find enjoyment in fitness activities and games
that will carry them through life, while being responsible members of
society and collaborative workers.
scholarships are available. Green, black or gray sweats may be worn
over the uniform for outdoor classes when the weather is cold.
Clothing should be marked so it can be identified if lost or stolen.
Damaged uniforms will require a new uniform to be purchased. For
safety and personal hygiene, only those students dressed in the uniform
will be permitted to participate. No jewelry; wearing it can be
SHOES: Shoes must be standard athletic shoes, laced and appropriate for exercise.
Students must remain in assigned lockers with the combination lock
provided. Do not share lockers with other students and do not bring
valuables to school. The P.E. Staff is not responsible for lost or
SECURITY: The locker room is locked during the
class period. Teachers will be the last ones out, securing the doors.
Late students will not be admitted for any reason, tardy or
otherwise. All restrooms concerns must take place during the
“changing period” because locker room restrooms will be closed during
the activity portion of the period. We encourage appropriate behavior
in the locker rooms at all times: graffiti, horseplay, littering, and
other destructive activities will not be tolerated.
CONCERNS: There is a district exemption form, which can be obtained
from the P.E. staff for any disability or condition that restricts or
prohibits participation. This must be obtained during the first week
of the semester. Students who do not participate will not receive
credit. Students with asthma must bring their inhalers to class
daily. Students who cannot participate in the regular class activities
for a prolonged period (more than two weeks) will be put on a Modified
Program consisting of tailored physical activity and/or written
assignments. These students must provide a physician’s note, and
they will receive a pass/fail grade for the semester.
PARTICIPATION AND MAKE-UP WORK:
is given for participation. Attendance is mandatory. Missed
classes must be made up just like other classes on campus, whether the
absence is excused or because of suit cut (non-dress). Make up sessions
for all P.E. classes take place on each Thursday of the last three
weeks of each six weeks’ grading period.
report at 2:55 on the track in full P.E. uniform on the track or under
the covered walkways on rainy days. Students are to run two miles
within 24 minutes. Only one absence may be made up during each make-up
- For absences at the end of the grading period, it is the student’s responsibility to initiate the make up with the teacher.
Teachers may elect an alternative method of make up work. Students
who miss skill, written, or performance tests must arrange a makeup
with their individual instructor. This is a job skill. We encourage
students to take responsibility for their own education by being
conscientious and by developing patterns of communication in which they
speak up for themselves.
SAFETY: THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS
IS A TOP PRIORITY. Safety is taught at each teaching station. All on
and off campus activities require that specific safety rules be
followed. This is an essential part of our curriculum. Unsafe actions
by students can result in injury to themselves, others, and
equipment. Deliberate damage to school equipment will require students
to be responsible for compensation.
Cell phones, IPODs, and all other electronic devices are prohibited
during all class sessions. Abuse of this policy will result in the
equipment being confiscated.
