Luckily, that's just a ruff draft.
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.
ACC has announced that they will be closed through September 5. At this point the website, email, webaccess, and blackboard are all down. Please stay safe!
What if we treated teachers the same way we treat professional athletes?
Stay safe this weekend.
