Policies and Procedures

Homework

Homework is assigned to reinforce topics covered in the classroom. Expect to spend about 15 minutes each night doing homework with your child.  Weekly homework is posted under the homework tab of my website. Check your child’s homework folder each night for assignments and send it back to school at the end of the week. Please make sure that your child’s homework has his/her first and last name. 
 
Attendance
Your child’s daily attendance is crucial to his/her academic growth. A good portion of the day includes hands on instruction that cannot be replicated at home or at a later time. However, if your child is running a fever, has a persistent cough, stomach bug, etc please keep him/her home. Remember that your child MUST be fever/symptom-free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
 
Tardiness
Our school day begins promptly at 8:30 AM. Please make sure your child is in attendance for morning assembly as there are many blessings in beginning the day with duas. Our morning work begins promptly upon arrival to the classroom. Tardiness disturbs classroom routines and hinders your child’s progress. 
 
Behavior
In order to create a classroom environment in which all students feel safe and respected a set of classroom rules will be established with student input. Disciplinary actions will be enforced: time out, taken out of the activity until calm, and  contacting parents.  

Meeting with the Teacher
If you would like to discuss your child’s progress please schedule an appointment. This will allow me to have an uninterrupted discussion with you. Please e-mail me at any time to schedule a meeting.
