    Students are expected to submit completed homework and classwork on time and in the correct place (Google Classroom page, wire basket, etc.)  at our next block meeting. Turn in homework or classwork  to me at  kathleen.gauthier@frsd.us   if it is late because you are absent due to illness or other parental excuse.  You have one extra A- or B-day to turn in homework or classwork if you are absent due to illness or other parental excuse.
