-Pioneer Center needs to make up 4 days due to weather related cancellations for the 2013-2014 school year.
-April 21st will be used as a student day to make up time. All students and staff will report to school on Monday April 21st to account for 1 make-up day.
-We have a “Blizzard Bag” plan pursuant to Ohio Revised Code section 3313.88 that was approved by the State and our Board of Education, so we will make up 3 days by following the criteria below:
1. Each school age classroom teacher will give each student a list of 9 activities to be done at home or during free time at school. These activities can come from the student’s IEPs and/or the UNIQUE curriculum. Attach a parent signature page for completion of each activity if completed at home under the parent’s supervision.
2. The activity directions, titled BLIZZARD BAG ACTIVITIES, must go home no later than March 21st with a due date of Friday, April 4th to the classroom teacher.
3. If on April 4th, the activities are not turned back in, Kari Karshner Administrative Support Coordinator, will be notified to mark the students absent for the calamity days corresponding with the activities (3 for each day).
This is a unique and new experience for all of us, so we ask your cooperation and patience. If you have questions or need clarification, please don’t hesitate to call at 773-2165 or email at email@example.com. Thank you for all that you do for the students at Pioneer School.
