Exclusion from Physical Education

Physical Education is a requirement. Students who may need to be excused from participation in physical education due to a medical reason must submit a doctor's note to the school nurse. The note should include the reason and length of time to be excused. A parent's note for a minor illness may be honored for a 1-2 day period. Such a note is to be brought to the school nurse before homeroom. The nurse will approve the note and issue an excuse for the requested period. The student will bring the note from the nurse to the physical education teacher. All other exclusions from physical education beyond 2 days require a physician's note. Students excused from Physical Education classes will also be excluded from extra-curricular sports activities until which time they are re-admitted to their Physical Education class.
