Hello Winter

Blizzard Bags and Remote Days

What do I do if OHP closes unexpectedly?

This year, due to a delayed start of the school year, OHP has to be flexible if we need to close for a calamity day.  With your help, we can make sure the learning doesn’t stop–and that we get the educational days and hours we need. The first three calamity days that cause us to close will be Blizzard Bags, while any after that will be Remote Days.

Calamity Days 1-3: Blizzard Bags

  • For your student attendance to count, you must sign in by 10:15 a.m. to the Attendance Google Form sent out by Mr. Cook (just like Sophomore Experience Days).

  • You will need to be signed into your OHP Google account to mark your attendance.

  • Assignments for each class will be on Schoology or Google Classroom.

  • Assignments may be turned in for up to 2 weeks. 

  • Check your email on a daily basis. 

Calamity Days 4+: Remote Days

  • These days always start at 10:15 a.m. for students! Just like Blizzard Bags!

    • Teachers are available for office hours from 8:15-10:15 a.m.

    • Email, schedule a Zoom meeting, or ask your teacher if you’d like support another way!

  • Like normal school days on a 2-hour delay schedule, we’ll take attendance every class period.  Attendance will not be taken for lunch or Prime Times.

    • Teachers will let you know how they’ll do this!  Some CT labs may prefer Zoom, for example, while academic classes may use Schoology assessments with time stamps.

    • Students log in to each teacher’s online class (Zoom, Schoology, or Google Classroom) while following the 2-hour delay schedule. 

    • Teachers take attendance each period. You will be marked absent if you don’t check in.

  • Though time to work varies by individual, expect 20-minute virtual lessons for academics and 60-minute virtual lessons for labs.

  • The assignment lengths and due dates are at the teacher's discretion (can be same day but might not be, just like usual). 

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Where do I look to see if school is delayed or closed? Ohio Hi-Point uses an all-call system to inform staff, parents, and students. The information is also posted on Ohio Hi-Point’s website, Facebook, Instagram, mobile app, WPKO/WBLL, WKTN, K99.1FM, Sunny95, WLIO TV, WHIO TV 7, and WBNS-TV 10.

  • Do Remote Days always start at 10:15 a.m.? Yes

  • What if I don’t have reliable internet access?  Please see Mr. Case in the Technology Department for a hotspot provided by the school.

  • Do I need to do Remote Days even if my home school is closed? Yes  

  • Do teachers always have office hours from 8:15-10:15 a.m. on Remote Days? Yes.  However, if a delay turns into a closure, office hours begin once the closure is called. 

  • What are office hours?  Teachers will be available online (e.g., Zoom by appointment, Schoology, email, etc) for students who need them.

  • Will my teachers take attendance every period? Yes for every class. This will follow the two-hour delay schedule.

  • Do I need to be online for lunch or Prime Time?  No 

  • How will my teacher take period attendance if we are not on a Zoom call? Teachers will instruct students in how their attendance will be taken by period.

  • What if I need to sign-out for school-to-work, an appointment, or another early dismissal? You or your guardian should call the school to report a partial absence to Mrs. Oder on the OHP Attendance voicemail line.  You may also email her as well at roder@ohiohipoint.com.

  • Why can’t we just use more Blizzard Bags?  The Ohio Department of Education only allows us three Blizzard Bags.  We are grateful that extending the school year into June is not our only option. 🙂
