Flexible Instructional Days (FID)

September 2, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The last school year stretched us in ways we didn’t think possible.  There is no question that our students are more technologically savvy than ever.  While we are dedicated to

In-person instruction five days per week, it is good to have options for inclement weather or other situations that would have caused us to cancel school and extend the school year.

I am pleased to inform you that the District has received approval from the PA Department of Education to utilize Flexible Instruction Days (FIDs) as an alternate approach to delivering instruction if a circumstance arises that prevents instruction in customary manner. The District may utilize the FID program when schools cannot open due to inclement weather (i.e. "snow day") or any emergency, such as a power outage.

When the Superintendent determines to utilize an FID, students will complete learning activities and assignments remotely instead of in school.

An FID will count as an instructional day for students, and the District may utilize up to five (5) FIDs in a school year. To be considered in attendance for the day, students will log in to the District’s Google Classroom platform to complete an attendance question, participate in the instruction and complete assignments provided by the teacher(s).
