    Summer Academic Program Rules and Regulations:

    • ATTENDANCE: Attendance will be taken each morning. The program is academically designed to discourage "summer learning loss," therefore, a pattern of consistency in attendance is encouraged.
    • TARDINESS: All students are expected to be in their classrooms when academic instruction begins. Children arriving after 8:15 am will be counted as tardy, three (3) tardies will equal one (1) absence.
    • LEAVING THE BUILDING: Students are not allowed to leave the building unless they are leaving the school grounds with their parents for the day.
    • SPECIAL SERVICES: Parents are encouraged to contact the program in the event their student(s) require special accommodations. A determination can be made on how best to support the student(s).
    • CITIZENSHIP: Students are expected to maintain a wholesome attitude toward learning and to display the utmost respect for the program, staff, environment and one another. The program has zero tolerance for bullying. Any child engaged in this behavior is subject to disciplinary action, including expulsion.
    • DRESS CODE: Students are expected to dress in the same manner as acceptable during the regular school year.
    • RULES & REGULATIONS: Students are expected to abide by all the rules and regulations established by the program's code of conduct. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action.
