Physical Education Excuses
Students requesting to be excused from PE must bring a note signed by their parent to the Nurse. The Nurse will then write an "excused from PE" pass for the student to take to PE. Any request for three or more consecutive PE excuses must be accompanied by a Physician's written order. PE teachers will be informed of the length of excuse, and any accommodations that need to be made for your child. If your child has a health condition that causes him/her to miss PE class frequently, a doctor's note may be requested.
All injuries requiring any type of orthopedic support or device on campus must be reported with a medical excuse and cleared through the Health Office. If your child sustains a fracture and has a splint or a cast, or has been authorized by a physician to use crutches or a wheelchair while on campus, please check in with the nurse prior to the child returning to class. I will need a doctor's note to use the elevator in the academic building and or for the use of crutches or a wheelchair on campus. A written PE/activity restriction notice is also required, as well as a release to return to physical education when the student's injury has healed.
