Earth Science Students,

You are not allowed to take the regents unless you have completed, with acceptable quality, all labs that have been assigned prior to 5/9.

Any labs assigned after this date must be handed in on time, the day they are due. If they are not, you are not taking the regents.

Use the break to work on your labs.
