Sidway Elementary Homework PolicyHomework is intended as a reinforcement of the content learned in school. It is important for children to complete their homework with parental guidance if necessary. An appropriate amount of homework for Kindergarten and first-grade students is 10 - 20 minutes per day. Your child may receive homework from the classroom and/or any support services he/she receives. In addition to homework, it is expected that children read at home 10 -20 minutes per day. Specific questions regarding your child’s homework should be directed to his/her teacher.
