Homework Policy:

Homework Policy Homework policy - We encourage students to do their best on all assignments and tests. If your student is working beyond the recommended 1.5 hours on homework nightly, this is a problem we need to be aware of. The 6th grade teachers meet regularly to discuss homework assignments and try to gauge them so students are not overloaded. Contact your student’s advisor if your student is significantly struggling with homework on a nightly basis. Please keep extra-curricular activities at a reasonable pace.

Vacations:

Vacations Anticipated Absence— If you know your student is going to be absent in advance, please fill out an anticipated absence form, and give it your advisor. Teachers will try to give homework in advance, but this is not always possible.
