A Message from Our School Counselor, Mr. Vander Meer, Regarding Summer School Opportunities

Good afternoon,

Below is some information regarding Credit Retrieval and summer school. Some Credit Retrieval Courses allow for students to test out of portions of the material that students demonstrate mastery in when they take a pre-test, but all the options will also allow students to complete the entire course as well.

2019 MS/HS Summer School

Somerset Academy Losee K-12 is offering Summer School Online Credit Retrieval. It is through an online company BYU Suite. Somerset Losee used this company during the last summer with much success. There will be a teacher in the classroom at all times to assist and monitor progress.

Although this is a self-paced online course, attendance is still required so that they can benefit from the teacher’s assistance. The student will be in attendance until they complete the course. Absences are not allowed. One absence will withdraw a student from the course and refunds will not be given.

Session I: June 10-June 28

Session II: July 8-July 26

Summer school will only be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:00am-12:00pm.

Science: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy Physiology

Attendance Letter to Our Families

Good Neighbor Reminder

Please adhere to our Good Neighbor Commitment by not allowing your student(s) to remain unattended in the church parking lot. Students are trampling on their landscaping, climbing the trees, and leaving debris throughout the parking lot making their church look untidy. The church has been gracious to allow us to use their lot, let’s not have that privileged revoked. Furthermore, please keep your student(s) safe by not leaving them unattended.


Please enter the carline to drop off your child in the designated unloading zone. Most all of you are following the procedure and the line is moving along swiftly, thank you! However, vehicles have been stopping along Rainbow and dropping off on the side of the road. This causes a safety hazard. For the safety of you and your child, we ask that you join us in following the proper traffic procedures.

Last Day of School May 24

All students will be dismissed at 11:30am

Free Dress Day for grades 1st-8th (please adhere to the student standard attire policy).

All KinderCats must be in their Sunday best!

Student Privacy

Please refrain from picture taking and recording of our students while on campus. We are a closed campus and must respect student privacy. Parents dropping off and picking up students must remain outside of the walking gate. We ask that you do not enter or pass the entrance of the walking gate to assure student safety. We thank you in advance for respecting and following our requests.

Lost and Found

Items not claimed by 11:30am on May 24th will be donated.
