                                                  PLAN B – run a lap, walk a lap for the entire class period.

Plan B occurs after MAJOR rule violations, refusing to cooperate with teacher, after not wearing appropriate shoes for the 3rd time that 6 wks.


If an inhaler is needed for physical activity, please bring an extra one to put in Coach Underwood’s office. (Write name clearly on it, not just the prescription label)

Guideline to be excused from Physical Education

  • A signed note from the parent must be given to the classroom teacher (they will get it to Coach Underwood) explaining the nature of the illness.
  • Exemption from PE IS ALSO EXEMPTION FROM RECESS!!! . It’s considered as part of your child’s physical education minutes.
  • More than three consecutive days of no participation REQUIRES a written excuse from a doctor, this will be given to the nurse.
