Grades will be posted via Gradelink. Please see Mrs. Vick if you are having a hard time accessing the website. When you are in the website you are able to set parent notifications. A zero will be posted for missing work. They will be reminded twice to turn it in. If work is not turned in within a week of when the assignment was due, the zero will remain posted as a zero. I will make every effort to teach your child about responsibility of getting their work in on time or in a timely manner.
