  1. Hall pass

    A hall pass is a pass or token used in schools to show that a student has been authorized to be out of his/her classroom while lessons are in progress. They are commonly issued to students if they need to use the bathroom, if they have been asked to run an errand for a faculty member, or if they need to see the school nurse. A student wishing to leave school for an off-site activity may also require a hall pass. In some instances a school may have reusable hall passes for specific tasks, such as restroom breaks, which are handed as and when needed, and are returned to the teacher once the student has returned. In other cases, a hall pass may be written out specifically for a student requiring to leave the room, and disposed of afterwards. Hall passes may be open ended: permitting students to be out of class until a task is completed, or time limited: granting a student only set period of time outside of the classroom. A variation on the concept of a hall pass is the hall pass timer manufactured by Stokes Publishing Company. This hall pass electronically times how long the student is gone so that both the teacher and the student can keep track of how long the student has been outside of the classroom.
