The Learning Lounge is a silent work time for students to complete homework. Students are expected to remain silent for the duration of the Learning Lounge. If a student complete homework before the Learning Lounge ends, he/she may engage in a silent activity such as reading, drawing, or brainteaser worksheets provided by SEP staff. The staff is available to assist students with homework.
While SEP staff supervises and assists in the Learning Lounge, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure homework is complete. If your child is having difficulty getting homework done, please notify the SEP Director for assistance.
Each day students will have an opportunity to engage in outdoor recreation (weather permitting). Students may choose to participate in the organized activity of the day or in free play. Examples of outdoor activities include flag football, chalk drawings, hockey, bowling, tag, basketball, jump rope, and relay races.
Each day students will have an opportunity to engage in an indoor activity. Options include participating in the activity or free play. Indoor activities include crafts, art, games, science experiments, book club, monthly movie Friday, and monthly birthday Friday.
Technology in SEP
Students may pick up cell phones and personal technology items once signed out of SEP for the day. With permission and at specific times, students with school-issued iPads or other technology may use such devices for homework only.
