Rules of Summer School


Because summer school is very concentrated, an absence of one day is the equivalent of missing over a week of the regular school year. Therefore, having more than one absence in a 0.5 credit course will result in the withholding of credit. Having more than two absences in a 1.0 credit course will result in the withholding of credit. In case of an emergency, parents must contact the summer school instructor. If a student has more than five late arrivals, he/she is in jeopardy of not receiving credit for the course. All appointments must be scheduled after school hours.

Make-Up Work

Make-up work is the student’s responsibility. The student should consult class syllabus, classmates, or the teacher for assignments. If the absence occurs on the day of a scheduled test, quiz or due date of a major assignment, the student must complete the work on the day of return. If the absence occurs the day before the test, the student must take the test as scheduled.

Dress Code

The dress for summer school is casual. Shorts and sandals are acceptable, unless otherwise specified for individual courses, and must meet FCS standards.

Closed Campus

Once a student has arrived on campus, he/she may not leave campus until dismissed by the teacher.

Field Trips

Students must turn in permission forms, signed by their parents, and have all fees paid before leaving on the field trip.
