What is Blizzard Bag?
Blizzard bag is when you have no school due to weather / road conditions. Instead of making the day up at the end of the year your teachers will email you the work to do during that day. If teachers think you might have a blizzard bag the next day they might hand you worksheets to do instead of emailing you the work. On your day off you will do the work given to you and turn it in by email or if it is a worksheet bring it in the next day. If you have any questions your teachers will have a specific set of hour they will be watching there email to answer any questions you have. For theses assignments to count 80% of the school district must complete the work. If you decide not to do the work then you will be marked absent and have 0 entered in to your grade.
Why is this a good thing?
Blizzard bags are useful because if 80% of the students do their work then you will not have to make up the day at the end of the year and you wont cut into your summer. Some bad things are if you do not do the work you will be marked absent and you will get a zero for a grade that day.
My opinion on Blizzard Bags
In my opinion I personally like this idea of Blizzard bags because I enjoy my long relaxing summer's and hate when I have snow days and have to make it up at the end of the year. This is a smarter way of making up the days we missed in school. This is a good idea because on Blizzard bag days you get to sleep in and if you do the work you don't have to make it up at the end of the year and you get a longer summer. This is also a safer way and you don't have to drive to school worrying about your safety
