FITNESS NIGHTS
All HPE students are issued a Polar OH1 heart rate monitor to be used during the session and returned at the final exam.  All physical fitness hours are earned using the OH1.


Any student enrolled in HPE I or HPE II must attend one of two "fitness nights."  This meeting is to issue the heart rate monitor and provide required training on how to use it correctly. Students will not be allowed to take either HPE I or II unless they attend one of these meetings. This does not replace orientation. Students must be fully enrolled to attend.
Options - attend any one of these: (note: if you are in the special OPHS sections for pre-gov school you will have a separate fitness night announced by your course instructor)

The Spring fitness nights will be

HPE II Drivers Education Information

Classroom drivers education is a required component of the HPE II credit.  VHS students have two options to complete this requirement:

  1. VHS Saturday Option: We highly recommend students take the classroom drivers education component in person with our instructor (see dates below).  There is no charge/fee for this option. 
  2. VADETS online option: students can take the course online with VADETS.  Registration is on their website. We have no control over the quality or responsiveness of non-VHS drivers education courses. Students in the VADETS course must complete the final exam and receive their DEC1 card at least two weeks before the end of the VHS session.  Parents must find a proctor for that exam. 

Option 1 details: VHS Drivers Education Saturday Sessions with VHS instructor. Absences are not permitted. Patriot High School - room 1312 enter via door 20. Please be on time as doors will be locked for entry once the session begins. In case of inclement weather, the instructor(s) will send you a Remind link sign up so you will receive text notifications of changes:
