XC PE Credit and Letter Requirements

Issaquah Cross Country 2016

PE CREDIT

• ELIGIBILITY:  Any athlete that earns a Varsity or JV Letter as outlined below will be eligible for PE credit.

• WAIVER FORM:  Waiver forms must be turned-in to Gwen by the conclusion of the season.  A specific deadline will be

announced later and the form itself is available on the blog in the right margin on the home page in the ‘General’ section.

• ATTENDANCE:  Attend and participate in practices in their entirety.  No more than 8 absences of ANY KIND whether

excused or unexcused.  Missing part of a practice or non-relay or invitational meet both count as absences.  VERY

IMPORTANT:  ABSENCES FOR PE CREDIT PURPOSES BEGIN COUNTING ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEASON (Monday,

August 22) REGARDLESS OF WHEN AN ATHLETE BEGINS PARTICIPATING. (I.E. – If you do not turnout for practice until the

second week, you have already tallied 5 absences.)

• COMPLETE THE SEASON:  Attend and compete in all non-relay or invitational meets through the latest meet on our

schedule that you are eligible for.  (For most of the team, that meet will be KingCo on October 22.)
