If you are in a class with Ms Hugetz, check Blackboard. (Yes, it's back up!) I have redone September due dates. (See Charts in Information & Books area.). I have also revised the last Homework page. If you cannot get back, message me on Blackboard so that we can work out a solution. As the saying goes, "This ain't my first rodeo." We got through Ike and previous disasters; we'll get through this one. Remember to breathe and, above all, stay safe! I hope to see most of you next week. For those who can't make it, I'll "see" you on Blackboard.
