Blizzard Bags


Blizzard Bags are intended for students to use in the event that we exceed the State of Ohio’s 5-Calamity Day Allocation.

Completing Blizzard Bag assignments will help our students to make up work for up to 3 additional days without having to extend the school year.

We will be sending home Blizzard Bag assignments prior to Winter Break.  More information and directions on how to complete the Blizzard Bag assignments are to follow.

Any student who completes all three days of assignments and turns them into their classroom teacher by January 14th will receive a small treat and have their name placed in a drawing for a prize.

Your child will only be docked attendance days if Kenton City Schools goes beyond the 5 calamity days and he/she does not complete the Blizzard Bag assignments.

Outside Recess

Winter is now upon us and the weather has taken a turn.  Therefore, it is essential that your children wear winter coats, hats, and gloves.  Snow boots are also necessary now that snow has arrived.

We will be going outside for recess as long as the temperature/wind chill is 20 degrees or higher.

Our students enjoy the fresh air and need to expend energy.  Students are not allowed to stay inside unless they have a note from the doctor or their teacher requests they stay in to finish or make-up work.
