2. Class Participation- Every student is expected to participate in physical education classes on a regular basis.
3. Excusal Policy-students are encouraged to discuss any physical problem or illness with their teacher. The instructor will make the decision as to limited involvement or sending the student to the school nurse. Generally speaking, if the student is healthy enough to attend school, he/she is healthy enough to participate in modified activity.
a. A written excuse from a doctor will be honored. Thus, the physician can be very specific in identifying which activities require no participation, modified participation, or full participation. Parents should request a description of specific limitations, if possible, from the doctor rather than a blank restriction.
