Flexible Instruction Days

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has 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 unforeseen emergency.  The Apollo-Ridge School District has been approved to use Flexible Instruction Days once we have exhausted all of the built-in "Snow Make-up Days" in the District Calendar.  We value face-to-face, in-person instruction which is why we have built in numerous "Snow Make-up Days".  These Flexible Instruction Days will only be used if we have exhausted all of our built-in "Snow Make-up Days".

To count as a full day of instruction, the FID must occur on the day of the building closure. On a FID, students must complete class assignments set by their teachers at home on the day that would otherwise have been canceled.  Students will be given assignments for each subject that would have originally taken place during the regular school day.

If a significant weather event or unforeseen emergency occurs and the use of a Flexible Instruction Day is needed, students and parents will be informed via a phone call, email, Microsoft Teams Message, and/or text message through the district-wide messaging system.  Notifications will also be published on the district website, and depending on the situation, alerts will be broadcasted on local radio and television stations.
