Mask rules: By order or the Governor of the State of Washington, you are required to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times while in class. Stretchy gaiters and loose handkerchiefs are not masks and do not stop the spread of Covid-19. To protect all my students and members of my family, I will require students who are not properly masked to leave.

Note: We will not study pornography. However, some of the assigned films are rated R and do have scenes and images with sexual content. If you are under 18 or have objections to a film for any reason, just let me know and I will create an alternative assignment for you. Let the film rating system and the discussions on the following detailed websites be your guide:
