Math Homework Information

To allow for our students to practice learned information at home (when necessary), teachers have been encouraged to send homework home that is both meaningful, necessary and tailored to student's individual needs.  The practice of sending home a standard homework assignment to every child (regardless of the needed practice on that specific skill) is not known to have much educational benefit.  The classroom teacher should also be using the homework assignment in a meaningful way (not just to accumulate points in the grade book for completion, which unnecessarily both inflates and/or deflates students' grades).  Homework is encouraged to be sent home specific to  your child's learning needs, so that you can practice needed skills with your child.   Homework isn't specifically  required; however, parents are encouraged to practice skills with their child to reinforce concepts at home.   As homework may not be sent home on a daily basis, parents are also encouraged to use the resources on the Pearson website to practice learned skills at home with their children.

Attention Families
It is very important that you review the New State Mandated Attendance Policy, so that you are aware of the expectations regarding attendance and tardies to school.
 

Student Attendance/General Procedures
(student handbook, page 12)

 

  1. If your child is absent from school, an automated call from the school will go home to inform parents of the absence and to remind them to send in an excuse within three days.
  2. For an absence of less than three days, homework and assignments may be requested from the student’s teacher upon the student’s return to school. If assignments are desired sooner, or the absence will be three days or more, you may contact the student’s teacher directly by email, or call the office by 10 a.m. to request that homework and assignments be available for pick up after dismissal.
  3. Within three days of a student’s absence, the student must present the classroom teacher with a note from the parent or guardian stating the exact date(s) of school missed and the specific reason for absence. The classroom teacher will provide the appropriate attendance form for the parent to complete. A parent or guardian signature is necessary. The legality of the excuse will be determined by the school administration.
  4. If an excuse is not provided within three days after the absence, the absence will be deemed unexcused/unlawful and could result in a citation filed with the district magistrate. A pink form from the main office will be sent home with your child as a reminder.
