Homework/Classwork Policy

Homework in all subjects will be unfinished classwork. This is a huge step from primary grades as the amount of homework will depend on your child’s ability to manage their time during assigned class work time. Students will need to carry textbooks to and from school to complete assignments. Please check with your child’s planner daily for assignments given in class. ALL WEEKLY CLASSWORK IS DUE THE FINAL SCHOOL DAY OF EACH WEEK. FRIDAY CLASSWORK, OR CLASSWORK FROM THE FINAL SCHOOL DAY OF THE WEEK ASSIGNED, WILL BE DUE THE FIRST DAY OF THE FOLLOWING WEEK. NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED IF YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN IN ATTENDANCE ALL WEEK.

YOUR CHILD IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLETING WORK THEY MISSED DURING THEIR ABSENCE. ABSENT WORK WILL BE PUT ON THEIR DESK FOR THEM TO COMPLETE UPON THEIR RETURN.


Current Assignments & Grades, Progress Reports, and Quarterly Report Cards

Current assignments and grades are viewable on Aeries Parent Portal. To access the Parent Portal, you must have a login and password given by our front office. Please see the clerks for this information. Progress reports will be given out mid-quarter with graded work attached for your signature to return. Quarterly Report Cards will be given out after the quarter has ended. Please see the Branch website for dates.

Assignment Corrections & Resubmission Due Dates

Students who receive papers back with the teacher's stamp to correct and resubmit for a higher score must have a parent signature on the paper, AND it must be returned by the resubmit date in Aeries. Please click on the assignment and read the comments of the particular assignment in question. Students will have the opportunity to earn 70%-80% of their corrected score on a resubmitted assignment. Opportunities for resubmission are at the teacher's discretion.
