GRAHAM LOCAL SCHOOLS BLIZZARD BAG WEBSITE

Blizzard Bag Information




Many Ohio school districts have transitioned to counting hours this year as opposed to days; however, due to the dates that our collective bargaining agreements were finalized with employees, our district will continue to count days for this year and next year.  Consequently, we have five days to utilize as calamity days, and we will be required to account for any full days missed beyond five.  However, the first three days beyond five will not need to be made up by students attending school.  This year the district will utilize three Blizzard Bag days as make up days.  On the first full day missed, Blizzard Bag Lesson #1 will be utilized, on the second full day missed, Blizzard Bag Lesson #2 will be utilized, and on the third full day missed, Blizzard Bag Lesson #3 will be utilized.  If more than eight full days are missed, each day must be made up according to the schedule that would be set.


Blizzard Bag lessons will be placed on the district’s website, and students will have two weeks to complete the lessons and return them to the teachers.  The lessons can be accessed via a link on the district’s homepage.  Students who do not have access to the internet will be given paper copies of the lessons by their teachers and be given two weeks to complete the lessons and return them to teachers. All students except preschool students will be required to complete the lessons in lieu of making up days 6, 7 and 8.
