Flexible Instruction Days
PTSD utilizes Flexible Instruction Days (FIDs) which may be used in place of a school day that would otherwise have been canceled because of inclement weather or other emergency situation. On a FID, students will participate by means of Remote Instruction.
Using a FID will not require additional make-up days when school is canceled. We are permitted to use up to five (5) FIDs per school year. If the district calls for a FID, parents will receive a text alert announcing the closure and identifying that the schools will be online for a Flexible Instructional Day. Each principal will send out further information and schedule. The students will then have live synchronous instruction that day. During the winter months, we will remind the students to take home their computers on a nightly basis in order to be prepared.
If the school district needs to have a delay (not cancellation), the district would not utilize the FID.
After school activities will be canceled during a FID. Varsity athletes should check with their coaches.
