    The Physical Education, Health Services and Athletics Department provides the framework for the K-12 physical education programs and oversees the middle and high school athletic programs. It also provides health services by registered nurses in the district's four schools and the Manhasset community's non-public schools as mandated by New York State regulations.

    The physical education curriculum reflects New York State Learning Standards. The objective of the physical education curriculum is to promote physical fitness and develop motor skills through regular participation in a variety of vigorous physical activities. Every student is required to participate in physical education on a regular basis. Where indicated by an individual's unique physical conditions, the physical education program is adapted accordingly.
