FLEX Friday

Skip image

Story image 1_0

FLEX Friday is a scheduled tutoring/remediation time for students.  During this time, students may work on missing assignments, makeup tests, or simply gain much needed tutoring with a teacher.

On a scheduled Friday, the bell schedule will be adjusted so that students meet with each of their classes and then have an additional hour at the end of the day for tutoring/remediation from 2:00-3:05 p.m 


Students will be assigned to attend FLEX if:

  • They have a failing grade in one or more classes

  • They have multiple absences

  • They have multiple missing assignements

Or, if a coach/sponsor of an extracurricular sport/activitiy requires students to attend in order to keep them 'safe' and not in jeopardy of finding themselves on the ineligible list and not able to participate.


The following things will happen when we have FLEX Friday:

  • The Friday before a FLEX Friday, teachers will notify students of a failing grade and tell them they need to meet with their teachers during CAMM on the following Monday from 7:45-8:40 a.m.

  • Teachers are available to students on Monday during CAMM to help students with anything they need, find out about missing assignments, re-take a test, etc.

  • Wednesday of that week is the deadline for turning in work in an effort to raise a grade.

Thursday morning we will distribute a list to teachers of students who are REQUIRED to attend FLEX and we will make a phone call home so parents are aware, as well.  (If a student's grade raises to passing before FLEX time on Friday, the student must still attend FLEX)

Scheduled dates for FLEX for the entire year are:

  • September 30

  • October 28

  • December 2

  • January 27

  • February 24

  • March 31

  • April 21

If students are absent or checked out early on FLEX days, they are missing out on an opportunity to not only raise their average in class, but to have additional tutoring time with their teacher to better understand the content.  If students purposely to not take advantage of these opportunities, it is difficult to do well in a class where they are struggling.

Students who have been assigned to attend FLEX Friday and leave school without permission will suffer consequences the following week.
