Blizzard Bag Activities

Blizzard Bags will need to be completed for calamity days that are taken after the allotted five days. These activities can be completed for days six, seven, and eight.  

For students in Grades 2nd-5th, activities will be assigned through Google Classroom. Your child will need to login in to his/her Google account to complete these. If your child does not know their Google information, please contact your child's teacher. 

For students in Grades K and First, please click on the appropriate link below. Students will complete activities on a tic-tac-toe board. Directions are located on the activity sheet. 

Blizzard Bag Activities are due two weeks from the day missed. Students completing activities through Google classroom will be monitored by the teachers. Parents of kindergarten and first grade students will need to complete/fill out the signature line on their worksheets. 

Again, if you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher. Thank you!

Arrival & Tardiness

We would like to let everyone know that school begins at 9:00 a.m. At this time, students should be entering the classrooms and preparing for the day. Please note that 9:15 a.m. is when students are considered tardy. This means that students should be in their classrooms at 9:15, not just the school building. If your child enters his/her classroom after 9:15, it is considered a tardy. Students should be dropped off at 9:00 a.m. If you are arriving in the parking lot at 9:10 or after, your child does not have enough time to get to his/her classroom. Please be sure that your child is on time. Thank you for your help in this!
