Freshmen are required to complete one unit of Health Education, including CPR. Sophomores must take the family life education unit along with driver education. Assignments to health, FLE and driver education will be made in such a manner as to create the best learning situation for each student. Students are expected to fully participate in activity classes unless a doctor specifically outlines limitations.

Non Dress= Non Participation
A Non-Dress results in Non-Participation for that class. Without dressing out for Physical Education, you become unable to participate in class due to safety and hygiene concerns. Five non dresses will be an automatic failure for the quarter. Students who fail to dress will not be allowed to participate due to safety reasons.
Students are responsible for bringing their PE uniform on the day that they have PE. If a student does not bring his/her uniform, a loaner uniform will be available as long as they are in stock. When a student needs to use a loaner they will not be able to earn full points for the day. Loaners must be returned at the end of the class period—students are not allowed to keep a loaner in their locker. The student who borrows a loaner will leave their school clothing with the teacher, as it will be returned when the loaner is returned. Loaners will be disbursed the first two weeks of each quarter if they are needed. After the initial two weeks of each quarter, students will only be allowed to borrow a loaner uniform at THEIR ACTIVITY TEACHERS DISCRETION. If you need to borrow a loaner after the first two weeks, YOU MUST OBTAIN A LOANER PASS FROM YOUR ACTIVITY TEACHER. This loaner pass will allow you to receive a loaner for that day only. Each time you need a loaner, you must receive one of these passes, because this will be the only acceptable form for receiving a loaner after the first two weeks of each quarter. After reaching the maximum number of loaner days determined by your activity teacher, the students will not be able to earn points and will receive a non-dress/non-participation day resulting in no points for that class period.
Locks and Lockers:
Each student will be assigned a locker. Students should lock all belongings in a locker during class. Students SHOULD NOT bring valuables to school, including but not limited to cell phones, electronics, cameras, etc. ESPECIALLY to Physical Education Class!! It is the student’s responsibility to secure their clothing and other items in a locker. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SHARE LOCKERS OR BRING BACKPACKS, TOTES, BOOKBAGS, AND LARGE PURSES ETC. TO THE P.E. LOCKER ROOM! If any of these items are brought to the locker room, students will be asked to return these to their hall locker for security purposes and may endure the penalty for being tardy to the locker room.
All students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is characteristic of a good citizen.
Fitness Log and Quarterly Activity Assignments:
Fitness Log is a quarterly requirement in which the students must participate in a minimum of 2 hours per week of physical activity outside of class. Students will record their daily activity on the log provided and reflect on the benefits of the activity. Parents/coaches must verify the student’s activity by signing the monthly log the students use to keep track of their hours. This log will be available on Blackboard.
Activity classes will also have a quarterly assignment posted on Blackboard as well as the fitness log. These assignments will be 15% of the quarter grade.
Health and Drivers Education will send out a separate syllabus.
