Physical Education Notes and Excuses

  • All PE/gym excuses should be brought to the nurse. For short-term illnesses lasting 2 weeks or less a parent note will suffice. For any illness or injury lasting 2 weeks or more a note from your physician is required. The note should state what activities your child may participate in during gym class if any and the diagnosis or reason why your child is unable to participate. The parent PE note or a copy of the doctor’s note will be forwarded to the PE teacher. Once you child has recovered or is cleared to return to sports and PE, your child will need a note or a release from the physician. A doctor’s clearance or note is not required if a parent note was written.
