Dear Parents and Guardians,

Assignments will move to the "past due assignments" section after the due date. Each child is encouraged to work at their own pace and these assignments, although listed as past due, will still be available for completion. Reminder: All assignments should be completed BY THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. Use the Daily Log on the bottom of this page to keep track of your child's work.

The district has a new grading policy during this time and is listed in the blue rectangular box on the left of my home page where it says COVID-19 Updates and Grading system.
