Blizard Bag Letter

Hello SES Families,

During the course of a typical New England winter, inclement weather occasionally necessitates the cancellation of school. This year the Merrimack Valley School District will be implementing three Blizzard Bag Days in place of a traditional Snow Day. The goal of a Blizzard Bag Day is to minimize disruption to the continuity of learning without extending the school year. On Friday, November 16th, elementary students will bring home their first blizzard bag assignment in preparation for the change of the seasons. Families will be notified of a Blizzard Bag Day via the Alma.  Teachers will be available for support on Blizzard Bag Days through email between the hours of 8:00am - 12:00pm. Assigned work should be returned to classroom teachers the day after a Blizzard Bag Day.

A few things to keep in mind as we navigate this alternative learning opportunity:

  • Only three days will be designated Blizzard Bag Days, and it may or may not be the first day on which school is closed. Be sure to listen to the recorded message you receive notifying you of the cancelation for this information.

  • Your child’s first Blizzard Bag assignment will be sent home in a folder, bag or envelope on November 16th.

  • Copies of all Blizzard Bag assignments can be found on the SES website under the “Blizzard Bag” tab at the top of the web page.

  • Blizzard Bag assignments can be turned in at any point in time following their distribution, up until two school days following the designated Blizzard Bag Day.

  • In order for these days to count in lieu of additional days at the end of the school year, 80% of students within the district will need to participate.

  • Parents are invited and encouraged to support their students in completing the Blizzard Bag assignments. It is suggested that you review the information included in your student’s “bag” in advance to ensure clarity in the expectations.

  • Feel free to contact teachers with any questions you may have. Staff will be available for support on the designated days!

Our primary goal remains ensuring the academic well being of our students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
