### HOMEWORK

Work to be  completed by students outside the classroom may be assigned by teachers in  order for students to achieve maximum growth and development. The amount  (typically nightly) and type of homework is left to the discretion of the  teacher. Homework is generally given as an extension of new learning introduced  in the classroom. These homework assignments will help to build good  independent study habits and develop a sense of responsibility in the  child.  Homework is due at the beginning  of class on the due date.  The student  will receive a grade of zero for homework received after the due date.

### MAKE UP WORK

Teachers  will permit students to make up work missed during an absence so long as the  student or parent/guardian makes appropriate arrangements with the teacher(s)  no later than the student's fifth (5th) day back at school. The student must complete the make-up work  within 10 days after his/her return to school unless additional time is  approved by the Principal.

### PARENT/TEACHER COMMUNICATION

Good  communication between the home and school provides for a basis of understanding  and support that will unite our efforts to help each child's growth and development.  School personnel will communicate with parents through a variety of methods,  including continuous progress report/report cards, telephone calls, written  notes, parent-teacher conferences, and opportunities for parents to visit the  school.
