Reading and Spelling homework assignments are added up to count as test grades at the end of each quarter. All students are required to complete homework assignments and return them the on the due date. If a homework assignment is not completed, the student will receive a zero for that assignment and will lose a privilege. A missed assignment will affect students’ homework grades quite a bit. If a student chooses to complete the assignment and turn it in late, he/she will receive half credit for that assignment. The only time that a student is excused for an incomplete homework assignment is if there are extenuating circumstances such as an extreme family emergency. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
