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 specify a Handout due date. If your teacher adds a due date, any activities or work you submit after the due date are late. Schoolwork automatically sets due dates to 11:59 p.m. local time for the specified day. See also activity.
