Medical Excuses from PE Class

If a student has a medical excuse from a doctor in which the student may not participate in PE for fewer than four (4) weeks, the student will stay in PE but will NOT participate. If a student has a medical excuse from a doctor in which the student may not participate in PE for four (4) weeks or more, the student will be assigned to a study hall.

Procedures: At Harriton, Student will submit the doctor’s note to the nurse AND counselor and appropriate Assistant Principal. At Lower Merion, please submit to the nurse only. If a schedule change is necessary, the student will be provided a new schedule through the Student Services Office.

Once clearance is obtained from the doctor, that note must also be submitted to the nurse AND appropriate Assistant Principal (for Harriton) and the nurse (for LMHS). Again, if that requires a schedule change, the new schedule will be provided by the Student Services Office.

If you are out of PE for ANY length of time you MAY not practice or compete in any school sponsored athletic event/competition/practice.
