    Attendance Policy

    Students have one absence per quarter that they will not lose points for regardless of the reason for absence. After the one absence, students will receive a 0 for every day they have missed for physical education, regardless of the reason for absence. Students can make up some or all of the classes missed with make-up assignments or participating in another P.E. class during their study hall, with discretion from their teacher.  Students must communicate with their teacher to determine how to make up the classes before the last 2 weeks of the quarter.
