Flexible Instruction Day

When the Weather-Related Flexible Instruction day is announced “A” or “B” day will be designated.
  •  If snow is predicted for the next day teachers will have an assignment posted by 3:30 PM before leaving the building. 
  • If an unexpected weather event causes the cancellation of school all assignments will be posted by 10:00 AM.
  • When a weather-related Flexible Instruction day is called, an alert will be posted on the school website and included in the recorded phone message informing families of the cancellation. Guidelines on the weather-related Flexible Instruction days will be included in the weekly Crusader Connection periodically beginning mid-November to parents and students so they are informed prior to the 1 st “snow” day.
  • Assignments will be posted on Rediker; the school’s learning management system.
  • Expectations are to be provided as to how the students are to complete and turn in the assignment.
  • Assignments are to be turned in electronically by the students no later than 8:00 PM that day. Turn-in options include electronically on Google Docs, Rediker or Turn-it in.
  • Assignments are to take a minimum of 50 minutes and a maximum of 55 minutes. (2- hour delay schedule is for 58-minute classes.)
  • Assignments are to be self-contained and require a higher level of thinking beyond a simple read and respond assignment.
    • Teachers will indicate the point value of the assignment.
    • Information learned from the assignment will be included in unit testing.
  • Teachers will be available to answer questions via email between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM-2:00 PM.
  • Teachers will take class “attendance” based on the submission of work. This attendance will be forwarded to the Attendance Coordinator.
  • If a student is legitimately sick on a Flexible Instruction day parents will be expected to follow normal procedures for reporting illness; an excuse card for the day must be submitted by the student upon returning to school. Students will be expected to make-up the assignment per the teacher’s make-up policy.
  • Students who have reported no home internet connection may opt to use a smartphone to complete assignments. If this alternative is not an option all assignments are to be submitted by 3:00 PM the 2nd school day after the weather day(s).
  • If there is a loss of power due to the weather, this will be taken into consideration for both students and teachers. This will be monitored and adjusted upon return to school.
