Students should not enroll in PE classes if they have a current injury or illness that prohibits physical activity for an extended amount of time. (i.e. surgery recovery, broken bones, mono, etc.). If an injury or illness occurs during the middle of a semester, the teacher, the student, the advisor, and parent may work out a reasonable solution to ensure fair credit is awarded. However, a student will be unable to receive credit if 25 or more days of class are missed in a semester and the student will get an incomplete for the course.

No points are earned during medical excuse times These days can be made up during 0 period PE if arranged with your teacher, as no points are awarded or earned for a medical excuse.






Grades are based on a positive grading scale.

5 points a day are awarded for punctuality, effort, dressing in proper PE attire (this point value may vary depending on the activity), participation in exercising, stretching, running and daily activity plus attitude towards the class content, fellow students and teachers.

Weekly runs (pacer and lap running) and daily activities may be awarded varying points throughout the semester. 2/3 of all runs and 2/3 of all swim unit days must be completed during the semester or an incomplete will be given. Runs and swim days missed can be made up during Zero period PE10, if arranged with teacher. Make-up credit for absences and runs will be awarded in chronological date order.
