    Flexible Instruction Day

    Flexible Instruction Day is an instruction format that will be used for situations when there is advanced notice that school will not be in session due to severe weather, law emergency, damage to the school building, or another situation preventing use of the school building for a short period of time.

    How will you be notified about a Flexible Instruction Day (FID)?

    • OLVCS parents/guardians will receive notification of an FID via text/email/phone call from the School Messenger system, as with all school closures. 

    How will work be assigned for FID?

    • If an FID is anticipated for the next school day, e.g. severe weather is forecasted, students will be given information about FID assignments by their teacher during the school day.  Materials needed will be sent home.  Assignments for the FID will be posted on Schoology.

    • In addition to Schoology, middle school students may be given information about assignments via email.

    • In the event that an FID is implemented on the day of school closure, teachers will prepare assignments via Schoology or email by 8:00 am.  Assignments and activities provided on these days will utilize materials that students can reasonably be expected to have access to at home.  

    What is expected of students?

    • Flexible Instruction Days are NOT remote instruction and are asynchronous, so work may be done at the student's own pace on the day that school is not in session.

    • FID assignments MUST be turned in as instructed by the student's teacher(s) within two days of your student returning to school.

    • If a student does not turn in the work by due date, he/she will be marked absent for the FID and will not receive credit for assignments.

    How can we get help with assignments during an FID?

    • Teachers will have two office hour periods during the FID school day: 9:00am-10:00am and 1:00pm-2:00pm.  Teachers will be available via Zoom and email during these office hours.
