Blizzard Bags 2014-2015

In preparation for calamity days this school year, Pickaway-Ross will be using Blizzard Bag assignments. In the event of a calamity day, students will be directed to access their Blizzard Bag assignments from Progress Book. Blizzard Bags can be found under the homework section in each of their assigned classes.

Students who have Internet access will be able to access the coursework online. Lessons are to be completed and returned to the classroom teacher upon the student’s return to school. If, however, Internet access is needed to complete the online lesson, students who do not have Internet and a working computer will have two weeks to complete the work. Due dates will be posted at the time a calamity day is called.

All students are required to complete the assigned blizzard bag assignments. Failure to complete the assignments will result in a zero (0) for each assignment not completed and they will also be counted absent for that assignment date.

Letters were sent home earlier this year with log-in information to Progress Book. If you need this information again, please have your student come into the attendance office.

If you have any questions about the blizzard bag assignments, please contact your student’s teacher.
