The use of the PE locker room is a privilege. Appropropriate student behavior is required at all times. In each locker room, students will be assigned a small PE locker with a built-in lock in the beginning of the school year or when enrolled. Large blue lockers are only to be used to store personal belongings such as backpacks during the student's’ PE period. Combination locks may be purchased to lock personal items in the large blue lockers. Students are not allowed to share locks, lockers, or combinations with others. Most incidents of theft in the locker room occur as the result of lockers being left unlocked and/or open. Students must monitor and lock up their personal property at all times.

Students who are sick or injured and are unable to participate in PE activity are required to have a note in order to be excused from PE class. A note from a parent/guardian note is good for 1 to 3 days (including weekends) and missed PE points/assignments MUST be made-up. The note must include the following:
For any illness or injury lasting longer than 3 days, a doctor's note is required. All doctor’s notes will be followed as prescribed. If no note is provided, students will be asked to participate in class activity to the best of their ability. Any student who refuses to participate will lose PE points for the day. Students are still expected to dress out for PE even though they have a note unless they are physically unable.
Students who have health limitations that could inhibit their physical performance for all PE activity must have a modified PE form filled out by a doctor and submitted to the health office. These forms are available in front office.
Absences and Make-ups:
PE is a daily participation class requiring students to be involved in all class activities. When an absences occurs, the student will not receive PE credit. Excessive absences will affect a student’s overall PE grade. It is a student’s responsibility to ask their own PE teacher for possible make-ups assignments.
While each teacher’s grading style may vary slightly, students will earn points based on their daily participation, effort, cooperation, sportsmanship, and attitude. Every PE teacher at Jurupa Middle School believes that dressing out for PE everyday is essential in order to create a safe learning environment and maintain personal hygiene. Please contact your PE teacher with any specific question you might have regarding grades or other matters.
