BLIZZARD BAGS 2015-2016
What is a Blizzard Bag?
Blizzard Bags are lessons and activities that are created to allow students to work from home in case of a school closing. Each teacher, including the specials, have contributed 3 days of activities and lessons for their grade level.
Are Blizzard Bags Mandatory?
Yes, Blizzard Bags are required in order to avoid extending the school year further into the summer in the event of many school closings due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances like a water main break. In order for St. Michael School to include a "day off" as a "school day," students are required to complete their Blizzard Bags. The work will be graded and added to your child's overall grade.
When Should I Print My Child's Blizzard Bag?
Please print your child’s Blizzard Bags as soon as possible and keep them in a folder. In the case of inclement weather, power may be out and you may be unable to print. By printing in advance, your child will have three days of work ready to go.
Please select your child's grade and download all of your child's Blizzard Bags. Please make sure you download grade level bags, algebra & 7th and 8th grade pre-algebra bags, physical education bags, art bags, music bags, computer bags, and Rosetta Stone bags. (The specials’ bags are to be completed only if students have that special class on the day of the closing.) BLIZZARD BAG ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE NO LATER THAN 1 WEEK FROM THE DAY OFF
