Issues with Grading and Absences

Mr. Hasinger reminds you not to assign zeros or absences for missing assignments.  Grades on PowerSchool  should remain blank or be marked as missing.  Students will be given a grace period once we return to school. Multiple issues with Edmodo and Microsoft Teams have been reported.


Issues with Contacting Students

Try as you might, you may not be able to contact one or more of your students or their parents.  Please complete the form linked in Mr. Hasinger's email of March 19 with the subject, "Coronavirus Trama Informed."
