Make-Up Schedule

 


WELLNESS MAKE-UP SCHEDULE
Students have the opportunity to make-up missed classes during their homeroom AND/OR after school. If they choose to make-up during their homeroom, 2 full homeroom periods will count as 1 PE makeup. If a student chooses to make up afterschool in the weight room, they will participate from 3:30-5:00 pm. Teachers supervising these makeups will assess whether students earned their credit for the makeup. It is expected that students will be on time, in athletic clothing, and work for the time allotted. Each 60 minute accumulated period of exercise will count as one PE make-up.

Locker rooms will be opened for after school make ups.
There is also the option of Yogalates taught by Coach Toland at Elite Dance Studio in Mundelein. Class is Tuesday nights from 6:30-7:30 p.m. with a $5 student rate per class.
