Remember that you have 5 days after the due date to turn in late work. After that, late work is counted as a "zero" and will remain so.


Quizzes and tests may be made up on an individual basis. Please contact Mrs. Cutforth if you need more information at jlopez@glynn.k12.ga.us or (912) 267-4200 ext 6161. This month, Mrs. Cutforth will be out of the classroom on February 4-5, and February 18-19.

Assignments can also be access via Edmodo. Edmodo is where the students actually turn in their assignments. Parent accounts are available if you would like to be able to see how "timely" they are turning their work. Please contact Mrs. Cutforth if you would like information on how to set up your parent account.
