Physical education is taught in a developmentally planned and sequential curriculum that fosters the development of movement skills, enhances health-related fitness, increases students’ knowledge, offers direct opportunities to learn how to work cooperatively in a group setting, and encourages healthy habits and attitudes for a healthy lifestyle. Health and safety are also studied.
Unless otherwise exempted, all students are required to participate daily in P.E. class. A student may be excused from P.E. due to physical limitations or illness up to three days with a note from the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s). Any illness or injury requiring more than three days exclusion from participation must be accompanied by a physician’s note stating the reason for the excuse and the length of time the excuse will run. A student who is excused from participating in P.E. may not participate in outdoor recess to prevent the student from exceeding physical limitations.
