Entering the Classroom
Upon entering the classroom each student should take care of any classroom related procedures
that need to be taken care of. This includes: sharpening pencils, turning in homework, making
sure you have all the necessary materials for class, and using the restroom if you have time
before the bell rings. When the bell rings you should be in your seat. You should check the board
for any directions.

Exiting the Classroom

When leaving the classroom you should check to make sure your desk and the surrounding area
are in the condition they were when you entered the room. All trash should be properly disposed
of, your desk should be put back to its original location if moved and chairs should be pushed

In the event of an illness, injury, or any other proper reason as to why you should not participate
in physical education please turn in a doctors note or a note from home explaining your
illness/injury and how long you will need to be dismissed from physical education.

In the event of an absence, you should check with the teacher to get any work that you missed on
the days you were absent. For every day that you were absent, you will have 3 days to complete
the work and turn it in. Every additional day that you take to turn in the work will result in a 10
point deduction.

Using the Restroom

Given the nature of this class, there will only be one set restroom break during this period. This
break will take place during the transition to the gym after the Health Education section of this
period. With this being said, students will not be given restroom passes during class time and are
advised to use the restroom before coming to class. In the event of a true emergency, the student
will be excused.

into proper athletic clothing. Acceptable clothing for Physical Education includes:

applying deodorant before and after class.
