SNOW SMART LESSON PLANS

SNOW SMART LESSON PLANS  

Students & Parents,
This page will assist you with knowing what to do during a non-traditional instruction/snowSMART
day.


What is a non-traditional instructional day or snowSMART day?
This is another term for a "snow day" in which students must work/complete assignments from
home. However, we do have snow days built into our district calendar. We also have time for makeup
days that we will add to the school year before resulting to the non-traditional instruction (NTI)
day. Therefore, this day will be used in an emergency situation and you will be notified if and when
the district intends to use it.


What lesson will my student need to complete on a non-traditional instruction day?
We have four content areas in our grade. Your student has one assignment for each content area math,
reading, social studies/science, and writing. For each assignment, your student will have a
short lesson and a corresponding activity that will be due to the teacher upon returning to school.


How will we correspond with the teacher(s) if we have questions?
The First Grade team has decided to make two options available to students and parents to
communicate on an NTI (snowSMART) day. First, our e-mails are always a good bet so that we can
communicate back and forth. Second, you may use the Remind 101 app to ask me questions about assignments. I will respond in a timely
manner.

• Reading- same
• Social Studies/Science- same
• Writing- same


What if we do not have internet access?
If you do not have internet access, please check no on the form that was sent home with your
student and return to school. We will prepare your student's NTI (snowSMART) folder with nontechnology
assignments.


Where are the assignments located?
Please see your homeroom teacher's web page to access your class snowSMART Day Assignment
Sheet. There will be a different sheet for each NTI (snowSMART) day that is assigned.
