Homework is a scheduled part of each school day that extends the learning process beyond the classroom. It is also an opportunity for special projects or reports. Homework must be completed on time since unfinished assignments affect grades. Parents should check that assignments are completed. Homework may be given over the weekend. The amount of homework will vary from time to time; however, it should never be excessive. If parents notice a problem with the amount of time spent regularly on homework, they should contact the teacher.
Process for Requesting Homework
Parents may request their child's homework if they feel their child is well enough to do the work that evening. This request should come after a student is absent for more than one day. If there is no request for homework, a homework sheet for the Middle School student will be prepared and left in his/her desk. The other grades will leave work sheets in the student's desk.
1. Let the office know if a parent is picking up the work and books or if we are to give them to another student.
2. Parents should come between 2:30 and 3:00 to the office for the work.
3. If a student is taking the work home, it will be given before the end of the school day. Please realize some books will not be sent home with younger siblings.
Homework Policy due to Illness
Students have one school day for each day of absence to make up the missed class work and assignments. Arrangements for missed quizzes or tests are made with the teacher and must be taken within one week of the student's return to school.
