Well, it’s time to discuss the topic of blizzard bags. Are they stupid? Do they help us? What’s the point of them? Teachers and administration mostly agree. Mrs. Turner, seventh grade Team Integrity teacher, states, “I think that blizzard bags are helpful. As long as we have them, snow days won’t cut into our summer time.” All of the teachers that we interviewed agreed. They all thought that Blizzard Bags were good because snow days wouldn’t take away our summer time. I also interviewed Mrs. Gover, one of our principals. Why should we have blizzard bags? Mrs. Gover replied, “Blizzard Bags are required by the state of Ohio if we have more than five snow days within a school year. Students are required to be in school a specific number of hours as outlined by the Ohio Department of Education.  If we are at risk of not meeting that required number of hours, we have to provide Blizzard Bags.” Mrs. Gover was asked if she thinks Blizzard Bags positively affect the students? “The work is required and will negatively impact grades if students don’t complete the work.” Mrs.Gover also reports that we have Blizzard Bags for all subjects and not just core subjects. So, from the point of view of teachers and principals, Blizzard Bags are typically a good thing, but what about the point of view of students? Lena Edwards,8th grade Team Endurance, states her opinion. “They’re the worst thing ever.”This reporter agrees with this sentiment.  Blizzard Bags are a controversy that are just not going away.
