Contacting Mr. Garrity

Dear Parents and Students,

Also--if you cannot complete an assignment or homework, please email me or see me IN ADVANCE to ask for an extension. In some cases I may ask for a parental note to verify your circumstances. Obviously, this does not apply for emergency situations.
