    *Note about Parent Portal: If an assignment does not have a grade, it does not mean it is a zero. Ungraded assignments will be blank in the grade column, and will not affect the student's average. If the student has not turned in the assignment at the time of grading, the grade will show a zero (0), which will factor into the student's average.
