The state Department of Education has approved South Allegheny School District’s request to provide “Flexible
Instructional Days” to our learners. This means that on days when situations like winter weather or a building emergency
require us to close our schools, we can provide instruction to our students at home rather than in the classroom (think
“Alternative Snow Day.”)
The state will count this as a full day of school and we will not have to make it up during the school year. The District has
been approved to use up to five (5) of these days this school year. We are planning to use these “Flexible Instructional
Days” throughout the remainder of this school year, as needed.
