Makeup Work Policy
Guidance for when your student is absent from school:
Tarver’s instructional practice operates under the belief that students learn best when in class and participating in classroom conversations and activities and homework is used to reinforce learning that has taken place in the classroom. Due to our beliefs it is hard for teachers to send work home with students when they are gone for multiple days due to illness or vacations. We believe that while students are out, they can always practice and strengthen previously learned skills such as:
Reading- any book, magazine, or article of interest
Writing- journaling about the days activities or write a story about any topic of interest
Math- play card, dice, or board games or visit any of our school sponsored online math programs
Once your child returns to school they will receive instruction on missed skills and concepts. Please refer to the list below for additional grade level specific ideas on what your child should do during an absence from school.
