When you are absent or on a medical excuse from a parent/guardian or doctor for 1-3 days, you are excused. Starting on your fourth consecutive day of absence or medical excuse from a doctor, you are required to begin completing one alternative PE assignment  found in Google Classroom per day. Your daily scores will be 0 until those assignments are submitted. You have a three days grace period upon your return to class to submit finished assignments.


MEDICAL EXCUSE:

When you have a minor injury, your parent/guardian may excuse you from PE or request “self-limiting PE” for 1-3 consecutive days by filling out the PE Excuse form. Any excuse longer than three days requires a note from a doctor clearly stating the duration of the excuse and/or the expected date of return to full participation in PE.
