Homework Policy

he Garton Elementary School Community wishes to extend learning time beyond the regular school day. For this reason, homework will be assigned by teachers at all grade levels.

 Expectations:

• A quiet, well-lit place will be provided for students to study

• Students will bring all materials home necessary for homework completion

• Parents can look over homework, and assist the student as needed

• Students will spend Friday recess time indoors to complete any missing assignments
