Attendance Requirement

Students are expected to attend Summer School every day. Absences and lateness must be avoided because of the limited time available for each course. Any student with an unexcused absence will not be permitted to continue in Summer School. A VACATION, with or without parental consent, is considered an unexcused absence.

Registration

Procedures for registering for High School Summer School are listed below.

  • Schedule an appointment with the school counselor or Summer School Site Coordinator.
  • Complete the HCPS High School Summer School Registration Packet.
  • Return the registration packet to the Summer School Site Coordinator by June 15th to reserve a spot.

Several criteria must be determined prior to enrollment in the course.  Once the student returns the registration packet, office staff must check the request and determine if the course is still open.  The following criteria will be utilized in determining course enrollment.

  1. Current seniors and incoming seniors will be given top priority to enroll in the course.
  2. Students failing the High School Assessment will be given first priority in the hybrid courses.
  3. Students on the Wait List will be notified by phone on July 2nd if there is an opening at the desired location.

The Registration Packet must be returned to the Summer School Site Coordinator by June 15, 2015. Failure to complete the Registration Packet by this date will cause the student to forfeit his/her spot in the HCPS High School Summer School Program.

Parent/Guardian Communication

Student progress will be communicated to parents weekly. Any concerns should be directed first to the classroom teacher and then the site coordinator.
