Parents and Students.....

    Dissections of preserved marine specimens are an integral part of this course; however, alternative assignments are available for any student who wishes to opt out of dissection labs for any reason.  Students that choose to participate in dissections need to be sure to return their signed dissection letters that were sent home at the beginning of the school year.  A signed dissection letter must be on file in order for students to participate in these labs.  In addition, in order to cover the cost of the preserved specimens, lab donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated.
