The Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Diocese of Allentown has approved our school’s request to provide Flexible Instructional Days (FID) as an alternate approach to providing instruction in place of a day otherwise canceled due to inclement weather. A Flexible Instructional Day utilizes a combination of virtual teacher office hours and student assignments. Students will be provided a schedule of virtual teacher office hours and Zoom information.
