SUMMER SCHOOL:

“9th, 10th and 11th graders! Did you get a D or F in a previous class? You need to take summer school for credit recovery!

 

For those who think night school would be a better option, you are wrong! Priority is given to seniors for night school and often does not have room for all other grades.

 

For those who think Edgenuity (online class) is easier….you are also wrong! Please ask the current students who are struggling to complete and pass Edgenuity. It is a challenging program.

 

Summer school is only five weeks! Take advantage of this opportunity and make up your classes this summer!

 

Deadline to sign up is Monday, May 5th! Please see your counselor NOW! “
