The State of Ohio requires one credit in health and physical education of all students (0.5 credit in health and 0.5 credit in physical education.) Physical education is taken every day for one semester, typically in ninth grade. A doctor’s statement is required by Ohio law for a pupil to be excused from physical education. Health is taken every day for one quarter in grade nine.

* Students may opt out of PE by participating in two seasons of RHS OHSAA approved interscholastic athletics, cheerleading, marching band, or color guard. Please get appropriate form from Guidance Department.
