Notes to Stay In

If a child is or has been ill, and he/she is not able to participate fully in all school activities such as recess or P.E., the staff at Stricker recommends that the child be kept at home if they are contagious or are under a doctor’s care. In the event that a child needs to be kept inside during recess, he/she must bring a note every day stating the legitimate health reason for not going out for recess or to participate in PE. After 3 days of limited participation, the school must receive a note from the doctor stating the physical problem and number of days the child should not participate fully in the school program (recess, P.E., etc.).
