A formal excuse is required to excuse any student from class participation as a result of illness or injury. This can be an excuse from a doctor or a note from the parent. All students will take the excuse to the school nurse, who will approve it and record it in the student’s record. She will then give the student an excuse form, which the student will give to the instructor at the beginning of the period. Excuses must be secure from the nurse prior to first period. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! If the student has used three excuses, he/she must present a doctor’s note thereafter. STUDENT-ATHLETES MUST PARTICIPATE IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION IN ORDER TO PRACTICE OR PARTICIPATE IN THE GAME.

HEART RATE MONITORS
This year in physical education class students will have the opportunity to use heart rate monitors. These heart rate monitors provide immediate feedback for the students as well as the teacher. Continuous heart rate is recorded for each student wearing the combination heart rate monitor and electrode, which is encased in a chest strap. The invaluable information that each heart rate monitor provides, affords each student the opportunity to learn exercise according to individual level of conditioning. No two students are exactly alike in terms of physical conditioning. With the heart rate monitors, our students will be given credit for doing their personal best and will be exercising according to what is safe for their level of conditioning. Heart rate summaries from each physical education class will be recorded for all students wearing the heart rate monitors and will be included in their portfolios. Each student is responsible for the heart rate monitor during class time. At no time should a student remove the watch and electrode until instructed by the teacher. If a student damages the heart rate monitor (watch) or electrode due to not following instruction, the student must replace it at a cost of $280.00. I have read the above information.
