    Couldn’t agree more! The district needs to seriously take the writer’s suggestion under consideration.
    My daughter is doing the online PE class so she can continue with Spanish (more important than PE) and newspaper as her electives. Why is a second language an elective anyway? Should be required. Maybe a 7th hour needs to be added to the day.

    For students playing a high school sport for even one season, at least one semester of PE should be waived. 16 and 17 year olds are old enough to make their own decisions regarding exercise. The Health class requirement is different There could be information in Health Class that is not provided at home. But the Physical Education requirement needs to be re-evaluated and athletes need to be given at a waiver.
