HOMEWORK POLICY


Elementary school children need family time and play time at home. In the upper grades, homework may include nightly reading, necessary review, preparing for the next day’s discussion, project work, or studying for a test. In the lower grades homework may include reading, studying for a spelling test, or necessary review. No busy work will be assigned.
