Return to School following Illness or Injury
Doctor's notes must indicate the date the student is to return to school and if there are any restrictions when returning. Any student with an injury requiring the use of any appliance such as a wheelchair, cast, splint, or crutches in school must have a current physician's note to use the appliance in school, ride the bus and/or to be excused from physical education (gym class). This insures that the student has been properly instructed in the safe use of their appliance (e.g. crutches) and minimizes any further risk of injury to the student.
