• HPE Activity Tracking & Activity Band Loan Request


      The vision of Virtual Loudoun is to cultivate quality, flexible, self-paced, virtual learning.

       

      Virtual HPE courses require a total of 70 hours of varied physical activity that must be tracked by an approved activity device or mobile app in addition to health and/or driver education curriculum.  Meeting these activity requirement can be challenging within the 15 or 10 week virtual term.  Students need to be sure to log and track activity weekly for full credit. Physical activity requirements cannot be waived or reduced. Students who cannot meet the 70 hour activity requirement should speak to their School Counselor to discuss other options.


      These courses follow the Virginia Standards of Learning for Health and Physical Education (HPE). Each student is required to participate in 70 hours of physical activity following the Virginia Standards of Learning. Just like a traditional course, Virtual Loudoun’s HPE courses require student’s physical activity be completed specifically for earning credit in HPE. This course provides each student the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities which can be found on each module’s fitness log. Students are required to get 7 hours (420 minutes) of physical activity each week for 10 weeks. Students must participate in a variety of activities meeting topic requirements to earn full credit. While we understand that students participate in a variety of school, club, and specialized sports, no more than 120 minutes per log may be used from that activity to earn credit for HPE.


      Some examples of the 2 hour (120 minute cap ) are shared below. 

       

      1. You area competitive swimmer outside of LCPS; you may 120 minutes ONLY on each log. All other activity must be completed specifically for this course. Only one organized activity may be used per log.
      2. You are on an LCPS sports team; you may 120 minutes ONLY on each log. All other activity must be completed specifically for this course. Only one organized activity may be used per log.
      3. You are a performing artist; you may 120 minutes ONLY on each log. All other activity must be completed specifically for this course. Only one organized activity may be used per log.


      You may participate in an organized sport/activity that is not on the list above. For those, the same expectations apply; you may 120 minutes ONLY on each log. All other activity must be completed specifically for this course. Only one organized activity may be used per log.

       

      Additional log details will be shared once your course begins. 

       

      Tracking physical activity

      Please be sure to secure an Activity Tracking Device for use with your course prior to the start date. Screenshots of activity logs are required to earn credit in your course. If there is an app associated with your wearable tracker, you may use that as well. For example, Fitbit uses Fitbit app, Apple watch uses the Activity app, Garmin watch uses Garmin Connect app, and Movband uses the Movband Sync app. The only exception would be for water sports, if your device cannot be worn in the water. You may manually enter your water sports activity or use an app like Swim IO (no more than 2 hours per log may be used).

      To Reset a Movband

      In the event that you were provided a Movband that was used in a previous term, you will need to reset the account associated with the device.  Click here for the directions needed to complete this process.  

      Important:  Please make sure you are registered and have synced your device before you use your Movband for the first time.  Using your Movband prior to registering your account will cause you to lose the activity moves/miles/steps you've earned before registration.
