How you handle a student who comes with a note from a parent saying. “Julie cannot participate today she …….”? I don’t have this scenario very often, usually students will bring a note saying “Julie hurt her ankle in gymnastics last night she might need to take it easy today”. Those are easy I just say to the student “Make sure you only do what you are able, please don’t do anything that makes your ankle hurt! Let me know if you are unsure about one of our activities.”
I have a student now who has a doctor’s note to “not participate in gym” for 6 weeks! Wow that is a long time! Do you have any great ideas? I was thinking I might check with her parents and see if she could spend some of her time in P.E. practicing juggling? Still 6 weeks, 90 minutes a week, I will need more ideas! I would love to hear what you all do!
