Consistent attendance and appropriate behavior are necessary for the success of this program. Students should not miss more than two days of summer school. Any difficulties in these areas may result in a conference to determine if the student should remain in the program.
Students attending the summer program should dress in comfortable summer clothes, such as long and short-sleeved T-shirts and long pants or shorts. All shoes should be flat and have a closed toe. Pants, shorts, and shirts should fit appropriately so that the mid-section of the body is completely covered, and they can play comfortably on the playground equipment.
What to Bring
The following items are strongly recommended:
- A hat or visor for outside play
- A reusable water bottle labeled with your child’s name
