The Crestwood Local School District currently has to make up four calamity days. The Crestwood Board of Education, last evening, passed a resolution to utilize Blizzard Bags to help offset school days missed this past winter. Blizzard Bags are an option provided by the Ohio Department of Education for school districts to help make up as many as three instructional days during a school year. With the use of Blizzard Bags, the Crestwood Local Schools will only have to make up one day at the end of this school year.
Blizzard Bags are online or take-home lessons that students complete to make up a missed day of school. Assignments will be available online on our individual schools’ websites or as “take home” hard copy assignments for your child to complete beginning Monday, April 14. Assignments are due two weeks after they are assigned. For example, the first assignments will be due two weeks from Monday, April 14 which is Friday, April 25. The second assignments will be assigned Monday, April 28 and will be due Friday, May 9. The third assignments will be assigned Monday, May 12 and will be due Friday, May 23.
If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the Principal of your child’s school. We hope that the use of Blizzard Bags will be beneficial to your child’s education and success.
Since one additional day must be added at the end of the year, the last day of school for Crestwood students will now be June 6, 2014.
