I still do not have my computer back, so I still do not have syllabi ready for classes, but as soon as the computer is repaired, I will get the syllabi done for you. In the meantime, be sure that you are checking Jupiter for due dates!
Remember that we do NOT have classes on Friday, February 9th—this is an optional conference day, by appointment. Please check with individual teachers for times available.
