**Welcome to Mrs. Murray's 6th grade math class! **

__SCHOOL POLICIES__

HOMEWORK POLICY - We have a school wide Homework Policy.

All homework is expected to be turned in the day it is due.

If the assignment is ONE or MORE DAYS LATE, no credit will be earned. The assignment is still expected to be turned in.

ABSENCES - It is your childâ€™s responsibility to ask the teacher for any missing work. If your child is absent from school for ONE DAY, your child will be permitted to have ONE EXTRA DAY to make-up the work. If your child was absent for TWO DAYS, he/she will be permitted TWO EXTRA DAYS to complete the work. Your child will be permitted the same amount of days to complete the missing assignments as your child was absent.
