I have had numerous questions about grading. Going forward assignments in all classes are to be graded. However, your grade is not allowed to drop below where it was when this began. That grade was your

__semester__grade as of March 16 (one day into the 4th quarter). You should do work in all classes with the intent of learning and the confidence that you can only make your grade better, not worse. It should also be pointed out that if students think the grade they had was good enough and they don't do passable work going forward then they will be marked as incomplete for the class. An incomplete means no credit for the semester until sufficient quality work is completed. I will still be entering grades into Skyward to track student progress. Do not be alarmed if you see your semester average decline. I still have to make sure students are completing passing work.## Daily Assignments
