Physical Education is an important part of our school program and is required by law. A child may be excused from gym with a doctor’s order if they are injured or when a medical condition could be exacerbated by physical activity. The order should include the reason and, when possible, the length of time for exclusion. No student may return to gym after such an exclusion until the School Nurse has received a return to physical education order from the physician. Students who are excluded from gym may not participate in Ski Club, recess or physical activity at EACMSI. Sneakers only are considered proper footwear for PE class.
