Who Needs to Attend

  • If a High School student fails a semester (two quarters) in Math or English, they need to attend one session of summer school.
  • If a Middle School student fails two quarters in Math or English, they must attend one session of summer school.
  • If a student fails three or more quarters in Math or English they must attend both sessions (all) of summer school but only one subject may be taken.

Attendance

The daily class period for middle and high school students will begin at 8:00 am and end at 12-noon. We encourage students to arrive 5 to 10 minutes before class starts so they can prepare for their day.

Due to the importance of all classroom instruction time, tardiness and absences are frowned upon. Credit will be deducted or removed for any student who has been absent for more than 2 days of class. Three tardies (late arrival) will be the equivalent of one absence.  Please commit yourselves to arriving early and being focused on the day.

Transportation

RBS does not offer transportation to or from Summer School.

Homework

Covering an entire school year’s coursework within a six week period will require the student to complete a great deal of work at home. Two to three hours of work from any class should be expected each day. It is impossible to cover the required information without the assignment and completion of the homework study time.

Dress Code

Students may dress according to their RBS dress down policy listed in their school’s handbook.  Shorts are not allowed.

Student Conduct

The regular rules of RBS will be in effect during the summer as well.

  1. Students must ask for permission to get out of his/her seat.
  2. Studens are expected to use proper language at all times.
  3. Students are expected to be in class on-time.
  4. Students may not chew gum or other substances anywhere on campus.
  5. If it is not needed in-class, don’t bring it (ie: no audio players, game devices, phones, etc.)
  6. Illicit substances of any kind are strictly prohibited.
  7. Students may bring or purchase a snack for the class break, however food is not to be consumed in the classroom.
  8. Students are not to be anywhere on campus except the classroom, Crusader Café, and rest room facilities.  Wandering campus before, during or after class can result in dismissal from summer school.
  9. Students are required to exit the campus at the conclusion of the class day.  If the student is attending Cool Days Summer Camp also, they must report directly to the camp for checkin.
  10. Any other regular RBS rules not specifically mentioned are still in effect during summer school.

Failure to follow the rules could result in dismissal from summer school and could jeopardize the student’s ability to advance to the next school year.

Grades

Students must achieve a grade of 68% or higher in order to receive credit for the course.

Textbooks

RBS will supply textbooks as part of the course fee. As long as the book is returned in the same condition in which it was loaned, there will be no additional fee. Lost or damaged books will be assessed a replacement fee ranging from $25 to $50, depending on the text damaged. Books must be returned before the student’s final grade will be issued.
