Health & Physical Education Curriculum

Limestone Learning Foundation
Promoting the healthy development of all students, as well as enabling all students to reach their full potential, is a priority for educators across Ontario. Students’ health and well-being contribute to their ability to learn in all disciplines, including health and physical education, and that learning in turn contributes to their overall well-being.

The updated Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1-8: Health and Physical Education, 2019  is designed to help all students reach their full potential through a program of learning that is coherent, relevant, and age appropriate. 

Exemption policy: The government has issued a Policy/Program Memorandum that requires school boards to develop a policy/procedure allowing parents to exempt their child from instruction of the Human Development and Sexual Health Education component of the elementary Health and Physical Education curriculum.

Parents/guardians are invited to learn more about the Human Development and Sexual Health Expectations by Grade. Should parents/guardians wish to exempt their child from this instruction, they are required to complete an exemption form for each child for each school year as per Administrative Policy 325: Exemption From Human Development and Sexual Health Instruction, Grades 1 to 8.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
