ONLINE!!e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgRemind codes: Text the correct class code to the number 81010.1st Period: @b1stchem2nd Period: @b2ndchem4th Period: @b4thchemOffice Hours: I will be online from 9:30 am - 11:30 am each school day to answer any questions. If you e-mail me or send a remind outside of office hours, then I will respond as soon as possible. I will check my e-mail and remind frequently throughout the day.
I will post a daily lesson plan on my school website that includes any powerpoints, notes, assignments, videos, etc. ALL assignments will be due the date posted on my website. You are expected to take notes, watch the videos, etc. because we will not be returning to school this year.
I failed the class! What do I do?
I will have all grades posted and finalized Friday (May 15th) evening. If you check Infinite Campus, and you have a failing grade for your COURSE FINAL AVERAGE, then you (the student) need to e-mail from your school account to see if there is anything that you can do. Parent e-mails and reminds will not be accepted. I will respond the following Monday (May 18th). I will not be contacting you if you fail, you need to contact me. I have spent an infinite amount of hours contacting students and parents throughout the last couple of months. This is up to you. Please do not contact me about failing the class (you are more than welcome to contact me with any other questions) until I have posted and finalized grades on Friday evening. After I finalize grades, then I will decide what can be done at that point. However, you need to consider your effort and behavior throughout the semester. These areas are the main reasons that students fail this class. You will only have May 18-22 to bring your average up, so don't wait until the last minute to contact me.
If you have already contacted me by e-mail, and I told you that you need to take the final exam retake, then here is the information. If you have not heard from me about this test, then you do not need to take it.
Final Exam Retake: The test is on Illuminate. The code is ZEV4KXC. The test will be open from 9:30 am on Tuesday to 9:30 am on Wednesday.
