Homework Help is a FREE service provided by federal grants. Students can receive help everyday from 3 p.m. until Midnight.  This service connects students to a FREE tutor.  The student types in their question and thetutor responds in the online classroom.  There is no limit to the number of times a student uses this site.  This is an excellent resource for students outside the regular school day.  Let's take advantage of what it has to offer.  Students can learn quite a lot in our library.
