Please spend a few minutes reviewing the procedures and expectations for blended learning schedules. Students with blended learning schedules in block 1 or 4 may qualify for flexible attendance. Parents and guardians must complete the permission form linked below prior to flexible attendance being granted to students.
Blended Learning Expectations and Procedures
The following procedures have been developed in an effort to provide more structure and support for students who have a blended learning schedule.
A student is considered to have a blended learning schedule if they have one of the following classes on their schedule: Open Campus, Edgenuity, Work Study, Independent Study, Dual Enrollment, Career Internship and/or Service Learning. These classes would be combined with typical “brick and mortar” classes in the high school.
Blended Learning Schedule Expectations:
Students who have a blended learning schedule block during block 1 or 4, and who have transportation, are permitted flexible attendance to arrive at school prior to block 2 (Students who have a blended learning schedule in block 1) or leave school at the conclusion of block 3 (Students with a blended learning schedule in block 4) with parent permission. Parents/guardians must complete the Google Form to give permission prior to students being permitted flexible attendance.
Students who have a blended learning schedule during block 2 or 3 must remain at Penn Manor to complete coursework. Students are not permitted to leave the school building during this time. Exceptions are made for students in Dual Enrollment, Service Learning or Career Internship that need to leave the building for an active placement outside of the building.
Dual enrollment students are permitted to have flexible attendance for any block with parent permission.
Students are expected to complete course work at the following locations:
Block 1: Library/library lobby, cafeteria and the social stairs by the cafeteria. (Students without permission for flexible attendance)
Block 2: Library/library lobby, cafeteria and the social stairs by the cafeteria.
Block 3: Library/library lobby and the Large Group Instruction Room.
Block 4: Library/library lobby, cafeteria, and the social stairs by the cafeteria. (Students without permission for flexible attendance)
These locations should also be used during corresponding Flex blocks.
Lunches: Students with a block 3 blended learning schedule must eat B lunch.
Students are expected to stay in the designated areas and to be actively working on their assignments during the blended Learning block. In certain circumstances, permission can be given for students to work in the virtual room.
Students with parent permission for flexible attendance must use the attendance office entrance/exit. Students are expected to sign in/out with the attendance office.
Students are not permitted to roam the building or use collaboration spaces during blended learning schedule blocks. The collaboration spaces at the end of hallways and the STEM social stairs are reserved for teacher and classroom use.
Students who are not meeting academic expectations in all courses may have their flexible attendance revoked.
Students who have a blended learning schedule course will receive a pass from the office. This pass must be kept with students at all times and must be displayed when working in one of the designated areas.
