Guidelines: When To Keep Your Child Home
When Do We Need a Doctor's Note?
-If your child has been absent for more than a week.
-If your child has had a contagious illness.
-If your child cannot participate in PE for more than one week.
-If your child has a splint, cast, crutches, etc. Please have your doctor write how long your child will not be able to participate in PE. If the doctor writes "until further notice" or does not give a date for return to PE class, we will need a second doctor's note stating your child may return to class.
When Can My Child Be Excused From Gym?
Parents can excuse their children from PE activities for no more than one week. If a student is not able to participate in PE for longer than a week we require a note from your child's physician stating the reason and the date that they will return to PE. If the note states, "until further notice," then we will need a second doctor's note stating your child may return to class. Parents cannot write the return note.
A student who is excluded from PE must first bring a note to the nurse for review. He or she will then report to PE with a copy of the note and receive further directions from the PE teacher.
