These are bathroom/hall passes I have used the last two years teaching as well as homework late passes I use. It keeps students out of the hall unnecessarily and encourages work turned in on time! I print these on colored paper and give one sheet to each student each quarter. (That gives them 4 bathroom passes and 4 late work passes to use) this can easily be cut down to 2 a quarter by cutting the sheet in half.
I like to offer extra credit for any passes not used, extra incentive for being on time, and prepared for class!
TIP: have the students write their name on them in INK when they first get them so none are transferred.
