Summer Online Health and Physical Education 2014:
Thank you for your interest in summer online health and physical education.
SUMMER SCHOOL HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES WILL BE CAPPED AT 500 STUDENTS. ALL STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO ENTER A LOTTERY TO BE SELECTED FOR THE COURSE THIS SUMMER.
We will be having open houses regarding summer online health and physical education on the following dates:
As many of you know, online summer health and physical education has become a popular program for our students. Due to limited resources needed for this type of online course, we must cap the enrollment at 500 students. Priority will be given to rising 11th and 12th grade students to ensure they have the credits necessary for graduation. Rising 9th and 10th grade students will be eligible for a lottery for the remaining slots. Students who are not selected in the lottery need to be prepared to take the course in regular summer school, during the school year or another summer online. More information regarding the lottery and summer online health and physical education classes can be found at https://sites.google.com/a/henrico.k12.va.us/online-health-and-pe/home.
All students, including any junior or senior, who wish to be considered for online health and physical education must sign-up for the lottery. If you are seriously interested in taking this class, please fill out and submit the lottery form (once per child) located at http://tinyurl.com/onlinehpe2014 You may verify that you are on the lottery list by going to the following link and looking for your name:
Parents may sign up for the lottery from February 10, 2014 at 8:00 AM – February 28, 2014 at 4:30 PM. Everyone who signs up for the lottery will be contacted through email no later than March 14, 2014 to let them know if they were selected into the summer online health and physical education class or not selected and placed on the wait-list. It is VERY important for email addresses to be correct as all correspondences will be thru email. If selected, parents will need to go to their home school counseling office to register and pay for the class between March 17, 2014 - March 27, 2014 at 4:00 PM. If students are not selected through the lottery, they will NOT be able to register in the counseling office. Registration is not complete until forms and payment are received in the counseling office. If registration doesn't occur by March 27, 2014 at 4:00 PM, slots will be given to students on the wait- list based on the lottery selection. Wait-listed students who become eligible to take summer online health and physical education will be notified after March 28th.
We are proud to be able to offer a strong and popular summer online health and physical education program. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding, as we handle the high student demand in a fair and equitable way. Thanks again for your interest in Summer Online Health and Physical Education.
