• Homework is assigned most days as review and reinforcement and should take no longer than 15 minutes. 
    • Homework is graded as follows:  100%-completed according to directions & on time or submitted during allowable time frame when absent. 0%-not done, not completed according to directions or not submitted when due. No late homework is accepted.
      • Most homework will require highlighting and numbering as a nonfiction reading strategy to earn 100%
    • Daily warm-up procedures include time given at the start of class for students to write homework in their agenda/homework pad. If there is no homework, "None" should be written to avoid confusion. If the agenda/homework pad is empty, then most likely the student did not follow procedure or did not bring the agenda to class. 
    • Parents: Please check your child's agenda/homework pad for homework assignments until they have established a successful routine - Thank you! You can also check the Parent Portal to see that homework is being completed.
    • If Absent: Students need to come and get all missed work as soon as they return; do not wait until next Science class! Students have as many days as they're absent to make up their work to receive full credit; see Grading section. Please remind your student of this policy when they are absent - Thank you! 
    • If your child is out for an unexcused absence (vacation, athletics, competitions etc.) their homework will be in the Absent Tray which they need to get the day they return, even if it's a Social Studies day, complete it and submit it within the acceptable time frame to earn full credit.
