FID Days

This past school year in 2020 and 2021, there have been a bunch of snowstorms recently and a lot of snow has been reported for the past 2 months. Whenever we have had school getting canceled, we would consider those days called Flexible Instructional Days or FIDs. These are when we have to do the virtual learning program so we can still do the work online and that we don’t have to make up those snow days. The state of Pennsylvania has allowed up to 5 of these during the winter and we have currently used 4 out of 5 of them. We only have one more left so we have to be able to use it wisely. They kind of remind me of last year, when we did the online program after we has to get cut early on March 13, 2020. This was when the teachers gave us our assignments and we could zoom for class when we had a question about the work. Now, the next thing after we used all 5 of the Flexible Instructional Days, we now have to do remote learning every time that we have a snow day. I think that we should be able to just have snow days like what we have been doing over the years past. The only time we should be remote is if our school shuts down from coronavirus. I don’t mind having to make up the school days at the end of the year, it really isn’t that bad and we should be able to make up the days.
