Activity Excuses

From Nurse Horne: Recently we’ve had a number of students request from the nurse to be excused from Physical Education, Weight Lifting, Aerobics, and JROTC.

In order to accommodate your student’s request to be excused from active participation in any class, the nurse must have a signed doctor’s or healthcare provider’s letter on letterhead detailing the following:

  • Nature of the student’s injury or illness
  • Nature of the student’s physical limitations
  • Duration of the excuse from activity 

In addition, the written doctor or healthcare-provider excuse must provide a valid phone number where the nurse can reach him/her for questions that may arise. Thank you, parents and guardians, for your cooperation.
