Homework Policy

In short, Locke School students read every night and practice math skills and strategies through games and activities rather than worksheets. Once the ‘core’ homework assignments are established, families can ‘opt in’ for further assignments based on student and family needs. Please click here for more details.

Mobile Device Policy

We understand that some families require their child to travel to school with electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, etc) for emergency purposes. These devices must remain in your child's backpack during the school day. If a device is taken out during the day, it will be collected and returned at dismissal.

Please understand that we can not be responsible missing or damaged devices.
