DAILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

In accordance with Education Code 28.002, all students enrolled in kindergarten or grades 1-5in an elementary school setting are required to participate in moderate or vigorous daily physical activity for  at least 30 minutes throughout the school year, as part of the School’s physical education program or through structured activity during daily recess.

If the School determines, for any particular grade level, that requiring moderate to vigorous daily physical activity is impractical due top scheduling concerns or other factors, it may as an alternate require a student in that grade level to participate in moderate or vigorous physical activity for at least 135 minutes during the school week.

A student who is unable to participate in the required physical activity because of illness or disability is exempt from this requirement.
