P.E. Absence Procedures Q&A

Frequently asked Questions:

My child was absent. What should they do upon returning to class?

Your student needs to find out if there was a workout on the day or days they were absent If so, they’ll need to arrange with their teacher to run a mile in order to make up the missed workout. If student was out due to a medical excuse on file with the attendance office, missed workouts will be excused.

What's the difference between a parent note and a doctor's note?

In short, a doctor's note is from a physician or doctor which will excuse a student from participation and from having to make up any physical workouts for the duration of their injury/illness. A parent note allows a student to receive a modification work-out on the day the note is written (anything over 3 days the student will need to be seen by a doctor). Ex. Injury to foot student may be given sit-ups or arm work-out.

I sent a note excusing my child from PE/ATHLETICS participation. Why have they lost credit?

A parent note excuses a student from participating in the work-out that day but they will receive a modified work-out to replace the grade. However, should a workout take place that is much more extraneous, students must make up the missed points from the workout on a day when they are healthier.

My child is returning to school, but isn't well enough to participate in PE/ATHLETICS. What do I do?

Send a signed doctor's note stating the nature and duration of their limitation. If the child was not seen by a doctor the parent can send a note describing the illness and coaches/nurse on campus will modify the work-out for the day.

If my child forgets their Athletic clothes what should they do?

Athletes are expected to keep an extra work-out outfit (school dress-code applies) in their locker at all times. If an athlete does not have anything they can wear then they will sit out of the work-out that day and receive a “0”. 2 points will be taken off for an athlete who forgets their uniform but still has a change of clothes to wear.
