It is the LAHS Physical Education Department policy that students do not receive participation points for any missed classes for any reason including:
- Doctors/Dentist/Orthodontist appointments
- Athletic events including school sports
- Any other reasons
It is recommended that students make up absences to regain these lost points, (students should check their grade on SIS). This can be accomplished by attending a lunch make-up session Thursdays on the track.
Students are required to be there within the first five minutes of lunch and spend approximately fifteen minutes engaged in a workout designed by one of our teachers.
Students are not required to dress out in PE clothes for the make-up and will receive ten points credit for each make-up attended.
Students also have the opportunity to complete a written make-up. In order to take advantage of this option a student must have completed one fitness make-up for each written one turned in. This option is usually used when a student misses days at the end of a semester and for athletes who miss multiple classes due to sporting events.
Students should talk with their teacher about the requirements for any written assignments.
