Learning at home is an essential part of a good education.
Students will have around 60 minutes of homework every night.
Additionally, students are expected to read at least 30 minutes every night.
Parent contact will occur if a student consistently turns in assignments late, incomplete, or not at all.
Late Work Policy
Students have a responsibility to turn in assignments on time. If a
student neglects this responsibility, the student will face the
following consequences: (these apply to number of times assignments
are late in a given 5 week period)
1 Late Assignment: – teacher discusses issue with student
2 Late Assignments: – teacher contacts parents
3 Late Assignments: – student stays after school to complete assignment
All subsequent late assignments will require student stays after school to complete assignment, and teacher, SA director, and parents must have a meeting.
