Blizzard bags: yay or nay

The only thing that is questionable now is that the way this winter is going; even the three extra calamity days may not be enough. Should blizzard bags allow more than three extra days, considering you are supposedly doing the work you would have done in school or for homework?

Blizzard bags are a new idea that many schools in Ohio have been adopting this cold winter.  Blizzard bags allow schools three extra calamity days.

Sycamore Community Schools’ board of education adopted this idea officially Jan. 27. On Tuesday, Jan. 28 the districthad its first blizzard bag calamity day.

“I think blizzard bags are a good idea because I don’t want to make up school at the end of the year,” Katelyn Young, 10.

Blizzard bags are virtual “bags” of work that students do in lieu of going to school. Each teacher is to give around 20-60 minutes of homework that the high school students are to complete in a two week period.

“I think blizzard bags are the easier way to go, as we have two weeks to complete the assignments,” said Emma Steward, 10.

Blizzard bags take for many only as long as their regular homework would take, so students generally seem to be in favor of blizzard bags as a good alternative to a full day of school.

“I like the blizzard bags, if only because we do not have to make up school days at the end of the year,” said Abby Bonhaus, 10.
