Summer School Information

Summer is fast approaching and with the difficult year, you may be wondering what summer school options are available for your child. At the secondary level, students are accepted to summer school through recommendations by their administrator. Administrators will reach out to families of students who are required to enroll in summer school based on concerns related to academic performance throughout the year. The grade-level administrator will also enroll those students in the appropriate classes. As a result, parents do not need to sign up for required summer school classes.

Monday, April 5 - Stop by the library to pick up a free coloring bookmark!
