Physical Education Grading Policy
The Grading Policy for Physical Education classes will consist of a point system.
receive a maximum of two and a half (2.5) points per day. One and a half (1.5) points will be
earned for dress/participation in the class and one (1) point will be earned for class attitude,
behavior, and an understanding of the rules of the activity.
A maximum of twelve (12) points
can be earned for tests conducted at the end of each activity period. A letter grade will then be
calculated using the district’s grading scale based on the number of points a student has earned.
If a student has an unexcused absence from school or their physical education class, they will
lose two and a half points for the day. The student can make up their absence during
intramurals after school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:30‐3:30.
PE Class Attire
All students must change out of their school clothes and into their “PE” clothes. At no times are
mid‐drift, cut‐off, V‐neck or sleeveless T‐shirts, or athletic department game uniforms allowed
as attire during class. Athletic shorts or sweatpants with no buckles, zippers or straps are to be
worn. Jeans or any other denim material is not permitted. Jewelry is not permitted to be worn
during PE classes. Footwear must be socks and sneakers. Work boots, ballet shoes, and sandals
are not permitted. Improper footwear also results in being unprepared.
Each unprepared is
equal to ‐5 points. Any student who has five (5) unprepared days in any one (1) marking
period fails physical education for that marking period. Parents/Guardians will be
contacted after the third time.
The PE staff has an open door policy with parents and guardians
at all times during the marking period. A student who is unprepared can earn two and a half
(2.5) points by attending the intramural program after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and
Locks & Locker Room
Students will receive a school issued Master Lock and locker at the beginning of the school year
to be used to safely store their personal belongings during PE class. If a lock is lost or misplaced,
the student will be responsible for purchasing a new lock from the school for $5.00. The school
and physical education staff are NOT responsible for any lost or stolen items.
NOT permitted to bring any electronic devices (I‐pods, mp3 players, cell phones or
money) to be left in the lockers in the PE locker rooms. Students should also not leave their
clothes or personal belongings out in the locker room without being locked in a locker. Students
must return their locker lock at the end of the school year. Failure to do so will result in a $5.00
charge to cover the cost of the lock. If a student has a lock that has been removed or damaged
in the locker room, it is the student’s responsibility to report this infraction to their health
and/or physical education teacher immediately.
Physical Education Medical Release Procedure
All students who request a medical release for one day or a short series of days must present the
school nurse with a parental or Doctor’s note requesting such. This note will become part of the
student’s medical record. If granted the building nurse will issue a medical release pass
excluding the student from the participation in class.
A parent may write a request to have their child excused from PE class; a doctor’s note is
required for any excuse more than three (3) days.
A student with a medical excuse for a period of one (1) to two (2) weeks with a doctor’s note
must complete a two page written report that will be assigned by the PE teacher.
