FLEX Period

The FLEX period in the Maclay Upper School was created to help students with Time and Balance. The FLEX can be used to get a jump on homework, see a tutor or get help from teachers, work on a project, have an internship, participate in a club meeting, training or sport, or many other options that help students make the most of their time and have more opportunities to balance their schedules.
