School of the Future Handbook
School of the Future does not have an officially adopted handbook for the 2017-2018 school year. We follow the School District of Philadelphia Code of Student Conduct. The Code of Student Conduct applies to all students while traveling to and from school, using any mode of transportation, as well as during any school related event. Additionally, the Code applies to off ground and after-hours behavior if there is a nexus to the school and the learning environment at the school is disrupted.
7:25 am – 2:34 pm
The District School and Administration office calendar is posted on the website. Any changes to this calendar will be posted there, as well as weather-related closures. Weather-related closures are usually posted by 5 AM of the day in question.
School of the Future uses phone calls and social media to connect to parents, learners, and staff members.

School announcements are also sent out via phone call to the phone number on record in the main office. Occasionally, we also mail information home to the address on record in the main office.
