Health and Fitness

Philosophy

Teaching our students good health and fitness principles can lead to a life of healthy practices, resulting in more productive, active, and successful lives.

Principles and Goals

An understanding of good health and fitness concepts and practices is essential for all students. Businesses have already begun to realize the extent to which poor health practices can undermine an employee's effectiveness and ability to succeed. The same is true of students. Teaching our students good health and safety principles can lead to a lifetime of healthy practices, resulting in more productive, active, and successful lives. The Essential Academic Learning Requirements in health and fitness establish the concepts and skills necessary for safe and healthy living, and in turn, for successful learning.

Liability Release During COVID-19

As we adjust to providing PE and other activities that include physical movement through remote leaning, we want to make sure we promote safety precautions at home as we do when we provide PE and movement at school.  Physical activity unavoidably has inherent risk involved.  Active students can slip or fall, so we do our best to make sure students are in a safe space to minimize chance they get hurt.  When we provide PE at school, for example, we provide a safe space and supervision for activities.  During remote learning, we don’t have the ability to provide that space and are very limited in our ability to directly supervise students.  This is where we need a partnership with parents to minimize the chance of injury or harm when students are completing PE. 

For the 2020-21 school year ISD has asked families to complete a liability release.  The text of that release is below and translated into 4 languages.
