Best Thing to do for Snow Days?

    What's the best way to put in "snow days" for virtual kiddos on Edgenuity without messing up the pacing for assignments? When face-to-face students are out of school, we want virtual kids to be out of school as well. I've found that it's stressful for kids when assignments are rearranged from days being taken out (giving them "overdue" assignments) though.

    Thanks for the help & feedback!

    Good morning,
    These quickest, easiest fix for this is to add the "snow days" to the "target date." Basically, extending the target/end date for the amount of days that were counted as snow days. IE: original target date 5/21/21 changed to 5/23/21 if there were 2 snow days to account for.
    Hope this helps.

    If there are snow days, any of those days get added to the calendar at the end for ALL students.  I do not think that any random day can just be removed from the middle of the calendar without messing things up.  Unfortunately, kids 100% remote will still be responsible for the work.

    So would it be okay to, like Maria said, add 2 days to the target date if there were 2 snow days.. then could I take out the snow days on the district calendar so assignments don't show up for students to complete for the day? Will this still rearrange the assignments exactly like it was before I extended the target date and took out the snow days?

    Again, thank you all for your help!

    If you add days to the end, it appears that they are making progress and improves their grades. If you block a random day off in the middle, it will push all the assignments due on that day into A) the day before or B) the day after.  It's got to go somewhere!  Unless you are going into each student individually and blocking that days' content.
