The First Day of School
Whether you’re in an online program, or in the classroom at a traditional public school, the first day can always be rather daunting. Here at FlexED, our students (especially for those new) may not be accustomed to the first day of an online school. To help make your first day a success, we thought we could give you an outline on what you can expect on your first day.
- Username and login
The FlexED team will email you login information. If you do not receive this by the first day of school, or on the first day of school, DO NOT WORRY! This is very common for late registrants, and we can assure you that usernames and passwords will be coming soon!
Textbooks ARE NOT needed during the first month of school, so not having your textbooks right away is not something to be worried about. If you have received your textbooks already, great! If you haven’t, you will be receiving a phone call sometime soon letting you know when they are available for pickup in your town.
- If you’re waiting….
If you are one of the many students who have yet to receive textbooks, or your username and login info, there’s plenty of work for students to do.
All our students are mandated to complete 3.5 hours of Art for the week, and complete 2.5 hours of physical education each week. This is a great way for your kids to get comfortable learning and completing school work from home.
If this still isn’t enough, your children can choose a book for their first book report! This book is to be chosen by your child, and we suggest a book they haven’t read before. Once they do so, begin to read the book and take notes, as book report instructions will follow. Reading this book is also a great way for students to build up their reading log, as Flex ED requires 20 minutes a day of reading.
- Once you receiving your login credentials
Once students have received their login credentials, they should begin following their timetable, and completing the Homeroom Orientation with their mentor. Your login credentials are also the exact same credentials used to login to your child’s Flex ED Office 365 email.
That’s all you need to know about starting with Flex ED! We wish you all the best for another successful school year, and as always if you have a question, feel free to reach out!
