Attention at the bottom of the page there is a link for chemistry lectures by topic. Please use this link to supplement the lectures you receive in school, and when you are absent, these lectures will keep you up to date.
All students are responsible for keeping current will all assignments. When a quiz or test is missed, students with an excused absence have two days upon their return to school to complete the quiz or test. Failure to make it up within the amount of time specified will result in a zero.

Attention Parents and students: Student Grades are available on the right hand side of the page. Click on the link for the student's class and find the student's ID number. Take note of any missing assignments and the term grade so far. Use this as a tool to keep current with your work.
Important: Please note that when a field is left blank on the grade sheet, no grade is averaged into the overall grade. This can give a false sense of security to students who only look at the overall grade. Please use the blank fields as an indicator of what you must make up. If you fail to make the work up, a zero will be filled into that blank field, which will then decrease the grade. students with excused absences on days that HW, classwork, or labs were given may make up the work, all others will receive a zero for that work.that assignment or lab.
