Grade Updates

Greetings Parents and Students,

Grades for my courses have been updated. This means that zeros have been entered for all assignments that were not submitted and were due by midnight on Friday, April 19th. Turning in assignments on time is the best way to ensure your grade does not drop. However, if you forgot an assignment or needed a little extra time, you can turn it in late. Remember, you have 5 school days to submit late work. 10% is deducted each school day the assignment is late. So work submitted on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday after the due date receive a 10% deduction. Tuesday receives a 20% deduction after grading. This continues through Friday, which is a 50% deduction. No late work can be accepted after 5 days past the due date. Please let me know if you have any questions.

A Note About Accommodations

Many students receive accommodations through GaVS. Please note that these newsletters (and grade update emails) go to all students. Likewise, failing phone calls go out to all students, regardless of accommodations. If you have a due date extension due to accommodations, zeros are entered and your grade replaces the zero when the work is submitted.


My weekly Adobe sessions are held Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:30PM.

*Remember, you can also request help sessions as well!!
