Homework Free Nights
Once again (even while in remote!), South Brunswick is purposefully and intentionally designating “homework free” nights throughout the year. The purpose of homework free nights is to give students time off from preparing homework and projects and studying for tests, as well as offering students an opportunity to explore topics that they are passionate about, spend time with family, and enjoy outside activities. There is tremendous value in engaging in meaningful homework assignments that reinforce concepts and skills taught during the school day. At the same time, there are times when we need to collectively have a break from the responsibilities of homework and enjoy time with family and friends.
“Homework Free" dates to span the 2020-2021 school year:
- Fall: November 26- November 30, 2020 (Thanksgiving Holiday) - No assignments or long-range projects due or tests given before December 3.
- Winter: December 23, 2020 – January 4, 2021 (Winter Break) - No assignments or long-range projects due or tests given before January 7.
- Winter: February 12, 2021 – February 15, 2021 (Presidents Weekend) - No assignments or long-range projects due or tests given before February 17.
- Spring: March 26, 2021 – April 5, 2021 (Spring Break) - No assignments or long-term projects due or tests given on the day of return, April 8.
