Flex Day Information

Flex Day Guidelines

When the Flex Period begins, student will remain with their previous time slot teacher to:

  •  Ask additional questions about subject matter
  • Continue conversations regarding items of interest
  • Work collaboratively with classmates
  • Work on their own independently
  • Decompress and utilize the “flex” as personal time

Exceptions:

  1. Students will remain with their previous time slot teacher unless they receive a Flex Pass in ADVANCE from another staff member to report to that classroom.  We have attached special Flex Day passes for teachers to sign.  NO LAST-MINUTE PASSES will be signed for students on the day of – you must plan ahead!
  2. Students will remain with their previous time slot teacher unless they receive a Flex Pass in ADVANCE to report to the South Café for collaboration with classmates on Project Based Learning/Group Assignments.  Students must ask the teacher that assigned the Group Assignment to sign the pass in ADVANCE to report to the South Café to work with partners.   
  3. Students will remain with their previous time slot teacher unless they receive a Flex Pass in ADVANCE to visit the Media Center.  Mr. Keele & Ms. Doherty will provide GOLD passes to administer to students on a “first come, first serve” basis.
  4. Students will remain with their previous time slot teacher unless they receive a Flex Pass in ADVANCE from a Counselor to report to Guidance.  All Counselors will provide BLUE Guidance passes to their counselors and only those students will be admitted.

Final Reminders:

  1. No passes can be signed on the Flex Day itself. Students must obtain these passes BEFORE the "Flex Day".
  2. Wherever you are Time Slot 2 or 4 is where you will stay for your "Flex" period unless you obtain a pass to go elsewhere BEFORE the actual Flex Day.  
  3. This means students in Study Hall, Media Center, Math Lab will remain there for "Flex" period unless a pass is obtained BEFORE the Flex Day occurs in order to go elsewhere.
  4. Students may not visit more than one classroom or teacher during their "Flex" period. Once you arrive, you must remain there for the entire period. 
  5. Students will have the normal passing time of 5 minutes to report to other teachers/staff and may not loiter in the hallways.
