2014 Summer School
WELCOME TO SUMMER SCHOOL AT YORK HIGH SCHOOL
Summer school concentrates coursework normally covered in semester and year-long terms into shorter terms, allowing students to take courses that they are otherwise unable to schedule into the regular school year. Summer school also allows students to make up missed credit(s). One 2 hour and 30 minute class in summer school is equal to OVER three days in the regular school year. We strongly encourage your close consideration of the nature of the summer school experience before registering for any summer school classes.
REGISTRATION FOR ACADEMICS & ATHLETIC SUMMER CAMPS
Registration and payment should be made through the Elmhurst 205 Web Store (beginning March 6). Select York High School Summer School or Sports Camps from the menu on the left hand side. You will need your student’s name and ID number as well as a credit card (VISA or MasterCard) to register.
Registration for an academic course does not guarantee a space in that course nor does the inclusion of a course in this brochure guarantee that a course will be offered. Course availability is limited due to minimum and maximum class size restrictions. Course offerings are subject to change due to staffing and minimum enrollment requirements.
Athletic camp enrollment is unlimited unless otherwise specified.
The grade levels listed for academic and athletic programs refer to the grade level a student will enter into during the 2014-2015 school year.

ATTENDANCE POLICY IN ACADEMIC CLASSES
Parents are asked not to register students if they anticipate a conflict with their personal schedule. Students will not be excused from summer school to attend summer camps, school trips, institutes, vacation, workshops, etc. This includes other programs that are run by the school district.
**IMPORTANT** Due to the condensed nature of summer school, regular and prompt attendance is essential. Students are expected to be present and on time. Although we realize that emergencies or unexpected events happen, we cannot grant any exceptions to the attendance rules for any reason. If a student exceeds the maximum allowed absences/tardies, the student will be dropped from the class with no credit or refund given.
In a full-year course that meets five hours per day (combined periods 1 and 2) for six weeks, a student is allowed a total of two absences for the six week session.
In a semester course that meets five hours per day (combined periods 1 and 2) for three weeks, a student is allowed a total of one absence per three week session.
In a semester course that meets two hours and thirty minutes a day, a student is allowed a total of two absences per six week session.
Students are expected to be in class when the bell rings. Two tardies equal one absence. A student who has accrued more than two tardies for a three week term or more than four tardies for the six week term will be withdrawn from the class with no credit or refund given. A tardy is defined as being no more than 20 minutes late. After 20 minutes students will be issued a half or a full absence depending on the time of arrival. Students are to check in at the Summer School Office if they are tardy to class in order to obtain an admission slip. Students are counted tardy when they arrive late to class and tardy when they return late from break. At no time during the school day are students to leave the building without consent from the summer school office. If a student leaves the building without consent from the office they will be withdrawn from summer school without credit or refund.
Final examinations or projects will be given the last day of each semester. No exams may be administered early. All Summer School work must be completed by the last day of Summer School.

Tuition is listed (in-district/out of district) below each summer school course description. To change or cancel a registration email or call the Summer School Secretary. Refunds will be made in full via check. Once a class or camp has started no refund will be given.
