Fitness Devices for HPE Students

All HPE students are issued a Polar A370 or Polar Unite heart rate monitor to be used during the term and returned at the end of the term. All physical fitness hours are earned using the Polar A370 or Unite only. This is a requirement to take HPE 1 or 2. Students who do not pick up a Polar monitor will be withdrawn from the course without penalty.  VPW HPE courses will not accept word of mouth or written fitness hours from students, parents, or coaches.

HPE 2 Drivers Education Information

All students registered for HPE 2 and requiring the driver education classroom component will automatically be placed in a section of Driver Ed through our partnership with VADETs.  This course will be conducted in the VADETs Canvas website. If a student elects not to complete driver education with their VPW HPE 2 course, they can do so on their own at a later date through the VADETs program directly. The cost to complete Driver Ed directly with VADETs is $119.

*Note: This is not behind the wheel/road and range training. Please coordinate with your base school before your student gets their license.
