DMMS AND DISTRICT POLICY
*All students are expected to participate to the best of their ability during their P.E. period.
*Middle School Policy: A student may be excused from total or partial participation for one to three days with a note of explanation from home. Each note is good for one day.
*Middle School Policy: An excuse for more than three days must be signed by a nurse or doctor. A written sports packet will be given to the student to complete during class to earn their points for the day.
*District Policy: If a student is suspended, the make up work is due upon return.
If a student has difficulty following any P.E. Rules, they will deal with consequences such as being removed from the group/activity or other OCD such as detention or Saturday School. If the behavior persists, the student will document what happened and state how they can improve upon their choices in the future. Our goal is to teach students that they are ultimately in control of their choices. We will contact the parents any time behavior interferes with learning or seems to be signaling a deeper problem. This will give you and opportunity to talk the situation over with your child and help him/her make better choices. We actively teach students how to communicate with each other when feelings are hurt or misunderstandings occur.
GRADING POLICYPhysical Education Department Grading Policy
