Emergency Closure - Asynchronous Flexible Instruction

Asynchrounous Flexible Instruction Days (FID) allow for uninterrupted instruction during times of uncertainty. FID days count as normal days on the instructional calendar. When Allentown School District students are participating in FID during inclement weather, student attendance will be accounted for during the school day. 

What will a FID look like for my child? 

On a FID, students will log in to zoom at the beginning of the day for attendance. Teachers will hold virtual class meetings throughout the day to communicate with students and families 
Students will need to check into Google Classrooms to review assignments and for attendance purposes. 
This will be an asynchronous day in which students complete assignments independently.
Teachers will be available for questions or support throughout the day. 

All teachers will provide directions for students in advance of a FID in order to guide students through the platforms.

Any meetings including IEP Meetings, Attendance Meetings, and Student Assistance Program (SAP) Meetings previously scheduled will continue as usual.  
How will I know if ASD decides to use a FID?
Prior to using a FID, staff and families will be notified via School Messenger email, voicemail and text message. 

For the most up to date information on ASD’s inclement weather plans, please ensure that you have updated emergency contact information on file at your school.
District announcements about FID will also be posted on the
website, shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and sent using the district’s mobile app. Additional alerts will be shared with WFMZ.
