PE Waivers

PE Waiver Form 

DUE: Friday, January 14, 2022

Turn in to: Drop off in Main Office or email the PDF directly to tmmorgan@seattleschool.org

7th and 8th graders have to opportunity to waive PE when they are already getting enough physical activity outside of school. The above document is the form you will turn in to waive PE and also record the hours spent on sports or physical activity.

Most students who waive PE are using reason #3 “Directed Athletics.”. For this option, you MUST provide a verification letter from the coach OR parents can detail the hours spent in the logs provided or on extra paper. Screenshots of practice schedules are acceptable supporting documentation, just be sure to include it with the waiver at the time you turn it in.

PE Waivers are DUE ABSOLUTELY NO LATER THAN JANUARY 14TH, 2022. The registrar needs time to enter the information and edit schedules as needed.

The TOTAL number of hours needs to equal or exceed 60 hours and these hours must be accrued during THIS school year. This means you might be turning in the form before the hours are officially logged and that is OKAY. Fill out the form based on intention of participation and if anything happens we can always go back and place into PE for 2nd semester.

Grades at Eckstein

  • Reflect what students know as related to the state and common core standards, and are able to do as demonstrated on a variety of assessments; and
  • are consistent, accurate, meaningful, and SUPPORT learning.

Our hope is that with a school-wide grading system, you and your student have a clear sense of what needs to be learned and what constitutes a successful performance. Grades are not to be used as a punishment.

At Eckstein, the letter grade means:

A = Exceeds Standard
B = At Standard
C = Approaching Standard
D = Below Standard
E = Far Below Standard/No Evidence of Learning
