Flexible Instructional Days (FID)

  • The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) approved the use of Flexible Instruction Days (FID) as an alternate form of instruction in place of a day otherwise canceled due to inclement weather or a building emergency. The PDE will count this as a full day of school. The school has been approved to use up to a maximum of five FIDs each school year. On a FID, students will complete learning assignments provided by the teacher at home on the day that otherwise would have been canceled and made up at the end of the school year.
