  • SUMMER P.E.

    The dates for summer PE cannot be set until the district sets the last day of school.  This is typically done right before spring break after the threat of inclement weather days have passed.  Register interest for summer PE on the Lafayette website.  Rising 12th graders are offered seats first, then rising 11th graders and so on.  If your student weren’t to get a seat this summer, chances increase for the next summer.

     Health can be completed online via eSchool.  Stop in the guidance office for a Health form the first of May; the course could be completed in the summer even if not in summer PE.

     Cost for summer PE and eSchool Health is approximately $150 each.
