A message from your teacher. A Handout can include announcements, reminders, instructions, assigned activities, or requests for work. Handouts consist of a list of recipients (an entire class or one or more students in a class), a title, instructions, and an activity assignment or request for work. Teachers can also set a Handout deadline. If your teacher adds a deadline, any activities or work you submit after that date are late. Schoolwork automatically sets deadlines for 23:59 local time on the day specified. See also activity.
