Dear Parent/Guardian:

Your student is enrolled in a fitness class at Capital High School. We do a variety of activities in class to improve one's cardiovascular endurance, as well as work on the other fitness components of flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and body composition. Hopefully, your student is excited about improving his or her fitness level, and has fun while doing it.

This year during some of our outdoor cardio work, we would like the students to have the opportunity to run as a group off campus. Running circles on the track gets boring, even though we try to provide various lap options. We have mapped out routes within a close boundary to the high school that vary in length from one half to two miles. Each may be easily completed within a class period, granted the student exhibits quality effort. All routes are one sidewalks or bike/pedestrian paths. Safety issues will be reviewed with your student before each run. Students will run in groups of two or three. As instructors, we will be moving back and forth between those in front and those moving at a slower pace, to ensure all class members are accounted for and to handle any situations that may arise. Instructors will have cell phones or radios for emergency purposes.
