I use a small dry erase board as a hall pass. I ran across one at a discount store that was designed to be hung on a doorknob, so it has a hole at the top that becomes a handle for the student carrying it. I can write the student's destination on it with a dry erase marker, sign my name, and send him on his way. The marker stays in the classroom, so hopefully they go only where they have permission to go. It is kind of a novelty for the students, so they rarely leave the room without the pass, which helps me follow the rule about always giving students a hall pass.
