 Attendance

Participation in this course is critically important for satisfactory completion of course goals and objectives.  Progress toward this goal will be partly measured by tracking student attendance.   Therefore, a student’s grade or credit in this class may be adversely affected by reason of tardiness or absence, resulting in a loss of daily points. 

 

Excused From Participation

Parent/guardian excused note:  A parent/guardian may excuse their child from the day’s activities by giving a note with a brief explanation for the health-related problem.

Medically excused note:  If a child is to be excused from participation in physical education class for 3 or more days, a written note from a medical professional will be necessary.  The medical excuse needs to state the length of time the child will be unable to participate.  When the child is physically ready to return to active participation, it will be necessary to provide the instructor with a medical clearance note from the medical professional.  If a student is out for 6 weeks, they will earn a grade of pass/fail.  Arrangements will be made for students outside of PE, if they are unable to participate for more than 6 weeks.  No grade or credit will be given for these students.

 

Make-ups Options

Points lost from excused absences and parent notes can be made up before or after school in the weight room or through morning runs.  Absences and non-participation days must be made up by the end of the semester in order to receive credit.  Communication between teacher and student is important if problems arise.

Ø      Weight Room:  One day spent working out in the weight room and completing the fitness sheet will make up one excused absence. 

Ø      Morning Run:  A 20 minute run will be offered first Wednesday mornings of every month.  Runners will check in at the weight room before moving to the gym.  Credit will not be given to students arriving late unless other arrangements have been made.  One run and completion of the fitness sheet will make up one excused absence.

Ø      Health/Fitness Article:  Students may find an article related to health and fitness and complete the required article make-up sheet.  A maximum of 3 articles may be turned in each semester.

***Long term medical releases of 3 to 6 weeks will earn their points by writing a report.  Report requirements are included in the sportfolio.  Long term releases 6 weeks or over will result in a pass/fail grade.

 

Suits

In order to participate in any PE class students are required to be dressed in a Tahoma PE uniform, socks, and tennis shoes with non-marking soles.  Uniforms will be labeled with the first initial and last name of the student only.  Uniforms should not be cut, ripped, or altered in any way, and should be worn as they are intended.  Uniforms are available for sale in the cashier’s office.  Appropriate sweats or warm-ups are permitted to be put on over uniforms after attendance has been taken. 

 

Loaner clothes:  Students without appropriate uniforms will be required to wear loaner clothes for that class period.  No daily points will be lost when loaners are checked out however the following will take place:

            1st – 3rd loaner:  Freebie

          4th loaner:  Phone call or Email to parent/guardian

          5th loaner:  Last loaner given  

**** Any further loaners result in student being sent to ISS with loss of points that cannot be made up.

            Refusal to wear loaner clothes will result in the following:

1st – 7th non-suit:  No participation in PE for the day.  Student loses daily points, referral is given, and period is spent in ISS.

8th non-suit:  Student fails for the semester
