Homework Policy Homework is typically assigned Monday through Thursday. Students are expected to write their homework in their assignment books each day, and the most current and up-to-date information can be found there. I will do my best to post homework weekly on Progress Book. If a child does not have their homework completed, they will be given a late grade and will be expected to complete the missing work. A note will be written in their assignment book. A parent is also expected to sign the notebook each night to be checked the next morning.
