Miraloma Homework Policy

Homework is intended to review and support work that is completed in the classroom. Please encourage reading at home from kindergarten to fifth grade. Homework is not on the SFUSD report card, and it is not always graded; homework is assigned to create good work habits and provide additional practice outside of the school day.
