Redesigned - better fit now. These are the only 4 passes that I need in my classroom.
The hall pass can have many uses – here are some examples
Getting a drink of water from the fountain
Going to the office
Taking a message to someone in another classroom or office
Delivering lunch count or attendance information (we do ours online now)
Retrieving something that was forgotten in another area of the building
Make 2 copies of the passes, cut them out, and glue them back to back before you laminate.
I then punch a hole on the little white star on each pass then thread twine or crochet cotton – something heavier than yarn – through the hole so that the pass can hang.
I attach small hooks (sticky backed work just fine) to the side of my mailboxes for these to hang. They are compact enough to hang just about anywhere.
When I hang the passes in the same place, I can see if anyone is out of the classroom since I can notice if one of the passes are missing. I can also notice if one of the passes is missing if all of the students are accounted for so that pass can be found.
I do make a new set every year. Keeping this resource as a digital download in a back-to-school folder makes it easy to locate when I need a new set.
