  • Yes. My dd had the flu and missed 2 full weeks (3 of them because the school didnt let her back even though she was fever free). We are still catching up! We probably got around 10 pages per day.

  • Yes, kindergarten is not easy breezy like it used to be and their are daily grades that have to go in.

  • Sometimes, but his teacher never really checks it. I don't think it really is that big of a deal in kinder. But I could be wrong. DS does do his make up work, and he takes it to school, but it never gets taken out of his folder or graded.

  • Yup. I mean I let the teacher know its not going to be done all in one day but that we will turn it in as soon as possible. Its good b/c it lets you know what they missed and gives you the opp. to make sure they catch up etc.

  • I work in Kindergarten and we do send home make up work if kids are out. There are some things we have them do in class when they have time because it's something we want to stay in school or it's a project that takes more than one day to complete. withy the other work sometimes it comes back, sometimes it doesn't. (one girl was out for 1 1/2 weeks for a trip. The work was send home and we got it all back the next day. That was not expected , we knew she would bring it back, just not that quick) they students alos have homework Mon-Thurs and on the weekends they have a song and poetry folder they bring home to read. (very really they'll have a paper)
