### CORRECTION!!!!!

I was mistaken with regards to tomorrow's (Wednesday's) schedule. The 7:00 period is FIRST, not last. Therefore ...
9:00 Algebra 2/Trig will meet from 9:40 - 11:10 ...
1:00 Geometry will meet from 1:40 - 3:10 ...
I apologize for any confusion my original confusion my original announcements may have caused.
