Each teacher or grade level will set policies for homework at the beginning of the academic year. Please review and follow the homework guidelines as given to you by your child's teacher.
It is the school's policy to send home homework only if the student misses two or more days from school. If the student only misses one day of school, it is the student's responsibility to obtain all missed work from the teacher immediately upon returning from school. One day's absence does not excuse a student from responsibility for tests and assignments due on the day of his or her return.
Two or more days of missed school: homework can be requested to be sent home on the morning of the second day of absence before 7:55 a.m. and can be picked up outside the school office between 2:00-3:00 p.m. All worked missed during an absence must be made up.
Students have the same number of days as they were absent from school to make up the missed work from an absence due to illness or death in the family. Only in extreme cases of of prolonged absences will more than one week be allowed for work to be made up unless permission is granted by the administration. All make-up work must be submitted by the end of the grading period unless the absence overlaps two quarters. It is not in accordance with school policy for parents to request an extended period of absence for children.
Vacations during school time are strongly discouraged. Teachers will not provide assignments ahead of time. A "Pre-absence" form for planned absences of 2 or more days must be obtained from the teacher. It must be completed by the student, teacher, and parent and returned before the planned absence. Students have 2 school days after the absence to make up the work no matter how many days they were absent. All work is due on the third school day after the absence. (For example, if the student is absent on Monday and Tuesday, they would have Wednesday and Thursday of the same week to complete the missed work. The work is then due back to the teacher on Friday of that week.) Students are responsible for mastery of the material covered during the time of their absence.
