Casts, Splints, Slings, and Orthopedic Devices in School

Purpose: To ensure the safety of all students while in school.

Any student who has a cast, splint, sling, or any orthopedic device such as a walking boot or knee brace, is required to provide the school nurse with a note from a medical provider stating the diagnosis and any precautions that must be taken in school.

All physical activities will be restricted until a note is received from the medical provider clearing the student to resume normal physical activities.

A copy of the medical provider’s note will be sent to the student’s PE teacher and principal, as well as the attendance office.
