Think AED Campaign



Welcome to the Office of Health, Safety and Physical Education's web site. In our ongoing effort to provide services and support to all stakeholders in the school community, it is our intention to publish resources and current information that can be used to enhance the growth and enrichment of the students that we serve.

This site is designed to help stakeholders find information about Health, Safety and Physical Education Standards, Curriculum, Programs and Services; Procedures and Updates; and Other Programs of Enrichment. 

Our web site is divided into two units, Health and Safety, and Physical Education. Please select the programs and services link to view the variety of services, contact information, standards, procedures and resources that our office offers.


The Office of Health, Safety and Physical Education will post information for all Elementary and Middle Schools regarding registration for the 2017 Penn Relays. We strongly encourage all of our schools to take advantage of this fantastic activity.
Details will be posted in early 2017.
We would also like to to inform all schools about an exciting program called School Days sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Department of Athletics. In this program, schools have the opportunity to attend The Penn Relays at vastly reduced rates. 
Details will be posted in early 2017.


Breast Cancer Awareness and Support

The School District of Philadelphia and Komen Philadelphia are proud to announce the 6th Annual Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Pretty in Pig "Dollar Defense" contest program happening the week of October 17, 2016. As is tradition, this awareness and fundraising initiative will include a special one-day contest designed to bring vital focus to National Mammography Day (10/21/16). Together with faculty, students and families, we will spend an empowering week generating awareness and fundraising to help people in our community fight breast cancer, as well as support researchers.

"Dollar Defense" will celebrate National Mammography Day by generating awareness and fundraising for critical breast health services right here at home.

  • Spread the word! We encourage students to share with the women in their families the importance of mammograms and talking to their doctors about breast health.
  • We are asking every student to donate $1 or more during the week of October 17, 2016. Additional donations are welcome, and encouraged.
  • Every student who donates $1 or more can participate in his/her school's special awareness activity on Friday, October 21, 2016 to celebrate National Mammography Day.
  • The top ten fundraising schools will be celebrated at a Dietz & Watson "Grillebration" at the Philadelphia School District Administrative Building, 440 N. Broad Street.

Because of The Philadelphia Schools' past "Dollar Defense" fundraising, over the last five years, Komen Philadelphia has been able to provide hundreds of free mammograms to women in need in our local community.
