Blizzard Bag Days Info

BLIZZARD BAG DAYS during the Pandemic
For the past 7 years, Moultonborough School District has had the option of using Blizzard Bags during school cancellations. Weather that would make attending school hazardous results in school cancellations (snow days). Blizzard Bag days allows for school cancellations that do not disrupt learning and "count" as a school day.
This way our winter New England weather leads to less interruptions to learning for our students. Instead of a snow day (with no classes), on a Blizzard Bag Day, students access learning prepared by their teachers. Students in grades 4 -12 access assignments in Schoology, while K-3 students have more "paper and pencil" assignments. K-3 students can also access a copy of the Blizzard Bag assignments through Schoology and this website.

For the 2020-2021 school year, the district has decided to continue with Blizzard Bags as a option when in-person school is in session. When the district is in fully remote learning, we will not be using Blizzard Bags.
Please note that the first snow event that cancels school is a SNOW DAY! We do not begin our Blizzard Bag program until after we have a snow day.

How will I know that it is a Blizzard Bag Day?
The announcement that school is closed will include information that students are to use their Blizzard Bags. School closure announcements are posted on our website, available at wmur.com, and sent out through our SchoolMessenger system (phone, text, and email.)

How are Blizzard Bags different than Remote (Distance) Learning?
During remote learning times, students are expected to follow a remote learning schedule for the day which mimics the schedule when they are in-person.
However, Blizzard Bags are completely asynchronous. Students in grades 4 - 12 need to log into Schoology during the day and submit completed assignments by the next class meeting. Students in grades K-3 have physical Blizzard Bag assignments which are do the next school day.
Teachers and other support staff are available 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM.
What about the Remote Learning Division?
The Remote Learning Division (K-8) does not participate in the Blizzard Bag program. Remote learning students and teachers will follow their regular schedules.
