Physical Education Excuses

Students who need to be excused from physical activity because of illness for a period of 3 days or less should bring a note from home making such a request. The note must be presented to the School Nurse. A prolonged excuse from physical education requires a note from a physician. In the event that a prolonged absence is necessary, however, it is possible for a student to participate in limited activities approved by the family physician or be placed in a physical education class specially adapted for students with physical limitations.
