A note about homework assignments & the portal...

    I try to keep homework assignments up-to-date on my web page. HOWEVER, students are strongly encouraged to use their planner rather than relying on the portal. The planner is a more reliable source than the portal...sometimes I change the homework assignment in class or forget to put it on the portal. Students always know what the homework assignment is before they leave my class. The portal should be used as an emergency back-up only. Using the planner well & effectively is an excellent lesson in responsibility, independence, and self-reliance.
