Children who receive a 1 or 2 on a math test will be required to do test corrections at an extra help session set by the teacher.  They may also be given a reteach packet to complete. This is to ensure the children's understanding of the content as we move onto other chapters.

Grades

Field Trips

Field trips are an educational and social part of every child's education.  If your child is going to miss a field trip, a valid written excuse is needed either before or after the day of the trip.

Absences

If your child is absent, they must bring in a written excuse with them upon return to school.  Absent students are also sent home with missed work and required to complete and return it.
