Homework Policy

Suggested lengths of time for homework assignments:

Kindergarten      30 minutes
Grades 1&2         45 minutes

Student’s homework will be recorded in a “Homework Log” which will be distributed during the first week of school. This log is to document homework assignments and can be used for students to copy when returning from an absence.
