Transportation:

Unfortunately, at the time of this communication, the district will be unable to provide high school students transportation as offered in the past.  Students will a valid drivers license and vehicle may drive and park in the student parking lot.  Parents dropping off, should drop off in front of the high school and students should enter at the main high school entrance. Free Summer MCT Bus Passes are available in the main office for students to utilize as well. 

Attendance: 

Students are expected to attend Monday through Thursday during summer school.  Students are not expected to be in-person on Fridays.   Fridays are independent learning days where students are expected to work from home/remotely in the Edgenuity platform.  Students who are not meeting adequate weekly progress (60% for actual grade) will be required to “remote in” via Google Meet on Fridays to help ensure their successful course completion. 

Every 3rd tardy will equate to an absence.  Any discipline issue that warrants removal from the class will equate to an absence.  Serious infractions may result in the student being dropped from summer school immediately.  Students will be dropped from summer school when they accumulate (3) absences.

Cell Phone Policy:

Cell phones are not permitted during class time.  Cell phones will be docked during class.  Students will be permitted to use their phones between sessions and after school.   

New this summer: Remote Days 

Students will be allowed 5 remote days.  This means students can substitute 5 in-person days and log-in via Google Meets and work remotely.  We hope this accommodation provides families flexibility with vacations and summer schedules.  Remote Days must be approved in advanceStudents must log in for attendance and meet with their instructor to review their daily progress goal.  They may then work asynchronously if needed.  Students must show progress as established with the instructor during their remote days.  Failure to show adequate daily progress may result in an absence.
