Policies

Grading Policy:  The student’s grades are based on their growth, ability, effort, and participation in these four areas of the curriculum.  Some of the emphasis will change as they progress through the grade levels. 

Attendance Policy:  Parent or Doctor notes are required if a student is unable to participate in PE.   The student should dress out and bring the note to class if they are physically able.  

Uniform Policy:  Students are expected to dress out every day and to lock up all belongings. Students are required to dress out daily in their own proper physical education uniform.  Every student’s name is marked on his or her uniform for identification purposes.  Sweat pants and sweatshirts may be worn during cold weather.  Tennis shoes (with laces tied on top) are a required part of the uniform.  No jackets are allowed. Loaners are available upon request.
