Bottom Line: The heart rate of 81 students (93.8% black) in grades 3 and 5 was recorded in 15-second intervals.On the basis of 575 school-day observations (mean 7.1 days/student), students accumulated 44.4 (standard deviation [SD], 34.4) minutes of MVPA on days with PE and 30.6 (SD, 29.9) MVPA minutes on days without PE (P < .001).School policies should promote daily PE to help children in under-resourced areas achieve the recommended 60 minutes per day of MVPA.

ABSTRACT
We quantified the moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA, heart rate ≥140 bpm) of urban public elementary school children on school days with and schooldays without physical education (PE) class by using continuous heart rate monitoring. The heart rate of 81 students (93.8% black) in grades 3 and 5 was recorded in 15-second intervals. On the basis of 575 school-day observations (mean 7.1 days/student), students accumulated 44.4 (standard deviation [SD], 34.4) minutes of MVPA on days with PE and 30.6 (SD, 29.9) MVPA minutes on days without PE (P < .001). School policies should promote daily PE to help children in under-resourced areas achieve the recommended 60 minutes per day of MVPA.

Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) of urban public school children in St. Louis, Missouri, 2011–2014, during several school days. Average minutes of in-school MVPA (defined as heart rate ≥140 bpm) were computed from 15-second heart rate values of 81 elementary school students. There were 229 observations on school days with physical education (PE) class and 346 observations on school days without PE class. The P value compares total minutes of MVPA on school days with PE class and school days without PE class.

Mentions: The average number of in-school MVPA minutes was greater on days with PE (44.4 min; SD, 34.4 min) than on days without PE (30.6 min; SD, 29.9 min, P < .001) (Figure). On average, students accumulated 17.1 MVPA minutes (SD, 9.9 min) during a 50-minute PE class (range, 0.0–40.8 min). Recess contributed an average 5.5 MVPA minutes (SD, 6.0 min) each school day, with no difference between days with and days without PE (P = .53). The proportion of time spent in MVPA was 38.3% (SD, 21.7 %) during PE class and 27.9% (SD, 28.0%) during recess (P = .001).
