Dear 3rd Period Parents -
Please be patient with me as I try to finalize your child's grade. It has been very difficult merging three different teachers' grade books into one! I am in the process of entering each teacher's assignments, and then exempting your students who did not have that teacher originally...what a nightmare! Do not be alarmed if your child has a lot of exemptions (E), missing work (M), or if their class average is a 37. Everything should be back on track by Monday. Thank you for your patience!
