Home Learning

 All home learning will be posted each week on this web page.  It is the students responsibility to check this website daily.  If a student does not have access to the web at home, he/she must check this site before leaving school each day. Home Learning is due the next day unless otherwise specified. If home learning is NOT turned in the next day, it is expected the following day.  Students will stay in for recess to work on the assignment.  If it’s not turned in the following day, an email, note or phone call will be made to the parent/guardian.
