Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
The school can request a doctors note. They have NO legal right to ask for anything specific, regarding what and why your child is there but they can ask for documentation and evidence, to avoid issues with a lack of attendance. Presenting a letter with the doctors letterhead, stating that your child was seen, it not a violation of any HIPPA or health law or privacy acts.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
