FIDS - Flexible Instruction Days (cancelled school-days)

Dear Important People At Home,

You received a letter from the district explaining that in the case of a school cancellation, the district may designate the day as a FIDS Day, in which students are required to complete pre-determined work to compensate for the lost instructional time. Using the one-call system, the district will notify you if the cancellation qualifies as a FIDS Day. Below are the FIDS Days requirements for students in Grade 1. The materials in this bag include assignments for up to (5) possible FIDS Days.


The work listed for each day must be completed in full and turned in within FIVE days of the FIDS day for your child to receive full credit for that day of school. If the work is not turned in within FIVE DAYS or if it is turned in but not complete, your child will not receive credit and will be marked as an unexcused absence for that day.
