Excessive absences from Summer School may affect the student's school year, especially at the high school where credit requirements must be met for graduation. Students who are not maintaining regular attendance at Summer School may be asked to meet with the principal.
Standards of Conduct
Students will be held to the same standards of conduct and expectations as they would during the normal school year. Students are expected to:
  • Actively participate in their classes and complete all assigned work in a timely manner. 
  • Adhere to the established school dress code.
  • Conduct themselves in a dignified manner and be respectful of all students and adults.
  • Follow all rules as established in the Parent/Student Handbook.
