That's such bullshit. It's called a break for a reason. I would refuse.
At most, they will assign reading x number of minutes a day, which is never an issue for us.
No surprisingly she didnt. last year they did so i expected it this year. but i just put together a ton of stuff for him to work on during the week so we can keep up the work in school. He has a speech delay so we will continue to work on what the teacher sent home and last conference she had some suggestions about his spelling and subtracting so we are working on that.
If and when they do send work to do over the breaks, I toss it in the trash and send a note saying that we won't be doing that. They do plenty of work during the school year. Break time is break time.
