It is generally believed that out-of-school tasks given to kindergarten students do not fall into the same category of homework, as for grades 1 – 5.
Out of school work given to kindergarten students is really intended to be an opportunity for the children and family members to work together to review and enhance the experiences from school.
In the intermediate grades (3 – 5) daily and long-range assignments will be graded at the discretion of the teacher.
Students will be informed when assignments are to be graded and factored into their report card grades for content areas.
Tutoring can be arranged through the school office, especially in cases of extended absences.
The high school guidance office is also a resource for securing high school students who are able to tutor elementary students.
There are a number of Homework Hotlines on the Internet that may be of benefit to students with occasional questions or problems regarding homework.
Parents may wish to explore some of these options with their children.
When an absence occurs, the parents/guardians are asked to please notify the school office between 8 and a.m..
Parents/guardians are asked to indicate if the work is to be sent home with another child (suggest name) or picked up in the office at dismissal time.
