Medical Excuses: Students with medical restrictions must still dress for class and will be required to perform an alternate safe activity (with physician permission). A can do list will be sent to the doctors office. The doctor can check what the student can do. An example would be having a student with a broken arm ride a stationary bike with their legs. If a student misses three or more classes or needs adaptations for a prolonged period a doctor’s excuse is required.
*Students who are excused from all types of physical activity will be required to complete a written assignment during class.
Athletic Excuses: Athletics is not a substitute for a quality physical education course; therefore, athletes will not be excused from actively participating in physical education lessons. Teacher discretion will be used in assigning the amount of activity to an athlete on the day of a competition.
