Marietta City Schools students are eligible to make-up a total of three Snow Days with the use of Blizzard Bags. “Blizzard Bags” is a term developed by the Ohio Department of Education to identify assignments that students can do at home during those days school is closed due to bad weather.
Each teacher will develop these assignments that will be posted on the individual school website. These assignments are to be completed each day school is closed beginning with the sixth day of missed school. Blizzard Bag Make-Up dates will be posted on our web site when they occur. The state will allow each district to make-up three days in this manner. After those three Blizzard Bag days, all subsequent missed days will be made up.
Students are required to complete the Blizzard Bag assignments for their class and turn in by the date indicated. Students can print the work off and complete from home. If a computer is unavailable, the assignments will be given out to the student once they return to school. Work that is not completed will result in an unexcused absence for the student.
To access Blizzard Bags, go to your child’s school link. Once you are on the school’s web page, click on the Blizzard Bag link and then click on your student’s teacher or grade to access your assignment.
