Health and Physical Education Deferment Policy:
Freshmen at Cardinal Gibbons High School who are pursuing a 3-4 year sequence in a fine art may defer the Health/PE requirement. If the student continues in the same fine art for grade 10, the Health/PE department will provide an independent study for completion of the Health/PE requirement, after completion of grade 10. If the student does not continue in the chosen area of the arts, they will be enrolled in Health/PE in the sophomore year since the fine arts requirement, usually taken in grade 10, will have been fulfilled.
