All students must enroll and participate in physical education one semester each year unless exempt. Students who do qualify for an exemption from physical education must fill their required number of credits with a class.  There are no study halls.

A junior or a senior may be excused from the physical education requirement by a written request from parents because 1) the senior is seeking to enroll in a course that is not otherwise available, 2) the senior is participating in a cooperative/work study program, or 3) The student is involved in a competitive school sport.

A student in grades 9 and 10 may be excused from the physical education requirement by administrative permission only.  Severe schedule conflicts and student health issues will be the primary consideration.
