Student Illness

Student Illness

If a student is well enough to be in school, he or she is considered well enough to be dressed in his or her P.E. outfit and to participate to some degree in class activities. A student unable to take part in a vigorous activity is still expected to listen, observe, learn, encourage or serve as a judge, scorekeeper, or the helper.

If it is necessary for a student to be excused from class activities, a note from home must be taken to his or her P.E. teacher at the beginning of the class period. Students excused from activity are not excused from class or from changing into their P.E. outfit.

If a student is to be excused from activity for more than three consecutive days, an excuse from a doctor is mandatory. Doctor notes are to be submitted to the school nurse who will photocopy for the P.E. teacher. Students who have a written excuse from P.E. will be required to complete an alternative assignment related to the area of Physical Education.
