Nearly all of my class scored a 96 or higher. What should I do with the 2 bearly passing and 1 non-passing students? They all had the same time frame and practice opportunities.

is yours. If you think that they should get a 2nd chance then give it to them but make sure they understand that you will average the two grades. If you do this you should also mark it as a retake and get the parents to sign them.

If it were me, I wouldn't give a retake. If they had the same opportunities and stuff and they don't have any type of learning disability then they get what they get. I say this because your other kids could see this as, why did I study and work hard if we could have a 2nd chance. Then they might not try as hard next time in hopes of getting a 2nd chance. Best to not start a trend. That is my opinion.

Love it. That is my point of view exactly but the end of year chaos just seems to gets to me. Thank you for your prompt reply!

I just went through this with my class on their research paper - had 8 out of 54 who failed because they didn't correct rough draft feedback or put in their bibliography. I thought about giving them a second chance, and realized that wasn't fair to those who did take the time to do it right. Best to teach them now about consequences!
