If a circumstance arises during the school day which does not allow the student to participate in class, the student should
discuss this with their instructor at the beginning of class. The instructor may modify the activity so you can receive credit. If you
will be “sitting out” for the period, the class will need to be made up for credit.
A student will be excused from physical education for a health reason by parental note for three (3) consecutive days only.
Please indicate on the note the nature of the injury or illness, the date, a contact phone number, and your signature. The instructor
will attempt to modify the activity so the student may receive full credit (referee games, assist with fitness data, etc.) In the event
the activity cannot be modified, the student will not receive credit for the days of non-participation. The student will have the
opportunity to make up the classes for full credit.
If a student needs to refrain from physical education for a period of time exceeding three (3) days, a medical excuse from a
physician is required. The physician should specify exact physical participation modifications. The doctor’s note MUST state when
the student may return to full participation. The physical education instructor will make a reasonable effort to modify the activities
