Physical Education “Opt-Out” for Sports and Physical Activities
Morristown High School offers students the opportunity to “Opt-Out” of Physical Education if they participate in a school sport or other approved activity. The purpose of this Opt-Out program is to provide athletes with the opportunity to devote more time to academic study while their sport is in season. Physical Education Opt-Out is provided along specific guidelines and dates and it is extremely important that all deadlines are met. Forms must be turned in no later than the last day of the enrollment period in order to be considered. Upon submission of the application along with athletic department verification of participation, any students who choose to Opt-Out of PE will be scheduled for a study hall where they are expected to focus on academics. Students requesting to Opt-Out of Physical Education for outside activities, also referred to as Option II, will be considered on a case-by-case basis after appropriate application is approved by the Supervisor of Health and P.E.
