Hello students, parents and friends,

My name is Ms. Whitted and it is my distinct pleasure to teach you/your child for the length of time he/she is assigned to my classroom. Below are a copious amount of important documents you should peruse. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions at:ywhitted@gmail.com

E-mail is the best venue of communication for me.






Extremely Important Information About Ms. Whitted's Grading Policies:

  • She does not provide extra credit.
  • She does not give out make-up work packets.
  • She DOES work proactively with parents to assure they are abreast with the information they need to know about their child's success in the class (or lack thereof).
  • She provides ELECTRONIC progress reports. If you would like one, please e-mail a request to ywhitted@gmail.com.
  • She does not accept assignments more than three days late. Assignments that are late are assessed a seven point penalty each day until they are turned in (this includes weekends). On the fourth day, student work is not accepted and the student recieves a 10% grade. Here are the following exceptions to this policy: Students who are sick are given up to five days to turn in missed work. Students who have an IEP, a 504 Transition Plan or are Homebound will be assessed according to their prescribed paperwork.
  • Ms. Whitted has a NO zero policy; however, students who recieve 10% as a grade for a missed assignment must understand that he/she will still receive a failing grade.
