     6th Grade Homework Policy:

    • Parents and students have access to student’s grades via the Parent Portal.  The portal needs to be checked by parents and students weekly to identify missing assignments and to monitor progress.
    • Students will lose 20 points for any late assignment. Students will have one (1) week to make up a late assignment. If the assignment is not made up by the end of the week, the grade of zero (0) will remain.
    • If students are absent from class for any reason {band lessons, doctor appointments etc.}, they are responsible for gathering missed work and returning it the next day completed.
    • Students who attend band lessons are responsible for any class work or homework.
    • In the case of an absence, parents are able to get missed work via the Middle School Office (585-657-6121 x1009).

    If a student has an unexcused absence from school, homework can be found on or students need to contact their teachers when they return. Students will not be given work prior to an unexcused absence.
