Parents, with progress reports going home today (2/14), you may see an MA listed next to an assignment. It is an abbreviation for Missing Assignment. It is not a permanent zero, but it is used as a placeholder to remind students, teachers and parents that something was missed due to an absence. An MA does average in as a 0.01% in the gradebook, so it will drop a student's grade for the purpose of catching your attention and be fixed. If a grade is blank (ex- /20) then the grade has not been entered and is not a zero. We appreciate your help in getting these completed, and your patience as our teachers are working to get these graded along with current work being completed.
