Grading in Physical Education at Oak Crest is based upon quality and quantity of student participation, along with possible alternative testing measures. Each day a student has the opportunity to earn points for warm-ups, flexibility exercises, cardiovascular and strength training exercises, sport activities, timeliness, and preparation.
An excused absence or parent noteis treated as a missed opportunity for earned participation points and can be made up during the multiple P.E. make-up opportunities offered during P.E. class or at lunch on an arranged day. As a department , we are committed to providing our students opportunities to improve.

Doctor’s Notes and Parent Notes
Notes: A parent note is good for 3 days if specified on the note. After 3 days, a doctor’s note is required (per SDUHSD district policy and the California State Education Code). Please be specific and state what activities your child may participate in and which activities should be avoided. Notes should be turned into the teacher at roll call. Additionally, students who bring an excuse note to miss a fitness assignment must make up the assignment during PE Class "Practice Time" or at an arranged time at lunch.
Students on a long term doctor’s medical excuse do not need to make up the assignments.
All students must use their own assigned lock and locker. All locks must be school issued. If a non school issued lock is found on a locker, it will be cut off immediately. Students are responsible for; learning how to open a school issued combination lock, using and taking care of the lock throughout the school year and returning the lock at the end of the school year. Any lost lock will be charged to the student at the cost of $8.00. This must be paid to the office before a final grade will be given.
