          Students will be able to fully participate and feel most comfortable when wearing:

    • Athletic shoes
    • Shoes without heels or open toes
    • Shorts under skirts or dresses

    D.   Excuse Notes:

     If your student is going to be unable to participate or be limited in their activity a note is necessary.  A parent note is good for two days.  Please be as specific as possible to the amount of limitation.  Examples would be: 

    1.     “Johnny has a cold and is not feeling well.  Please excuse him from all activity.” 
    2.     “Maria cannot use her right hand.  She may participate in activities not using that hand.”
    For three days or longer a note from a medical professional is required.
