Blizzard Bag Assignments

 It is time for…BLIZZARD BAGS!  You are receiving this packet because we have used all five of our calamity days due to inclement weather. The Blizzard Bags are used as supplements for 3 days of instruction.  In the event of a future cancellation, students will complete Blizzard Bag activities.  These activities are equivalent to a day of school work.  In order for the Blizzard Bags to count as a day of school, 80% of students in the district must complete Blizzard Bag activities. 

4th grade “Blizzard Bag To Do Lists” are available online on our Teacher Websites.  We are also sending the lists home with your child.  Make sure to place them in a safe spot!  Each “Blizzard Bag List” contains instructions for each teacher's subject area.  (If you have internet access, you will notice there is an option for Reading.)  Once your child has completed the activity, please write your initials on the list.  This list is to be returned to school within 2 weeks of the calamity day.  If students do not return their initialed “To Do Lists” within the 2 weeks, they will be counted as absent for that day. 

Remember…together we can make a difference and spring will come!

 If you have any questions/concerns, please let us know! Thanks for all you do!
