  • Homework Policy

    Starting Quarter 2 the following homework policy will be put in place: 1. Homework is expected to be turned in on time! 2. If it is a day late, points will be deducted. 3. If it is more than one day late, it will be a zero. Obviously if the child is sick or there is a true emergency, something will be figured out with the student.
