Ms. Crystal Johnson,

Dress Code

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

Who Needs to Attend?

  • If a High School student fails a semester (two quarters) in a subject(s), they need to attend one session of summer school.
  • If a Middle School student fails a course for the year, they must attend both sessions of summer school (Bible ONLY) and/or complete the online course through Educere in order to advance to next grade level.


The daily virtual class period for middle and high school students will begin at 9 am and end at 12 noon, Monday through Thursday. We encourage students to login 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 late arrivals will be the equivalent of one absence. Please commit yourselves to arriving early and being focused on the day.


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.


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.

Technology Requirement

Riverdale Baptist Summer School is a virtual school, therefore some technological requirements are in place. Families are required to have high-speed internet/wifi available for their student to use. RBS will provide a physical device for your student. Pickup and return information will be communicated with the parents. There is a $650 fee for devices that are not returned and a $100-250 fee for damage to RBS devices.

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. Students are expected to use proper language at all times.
  3. Students are expected to be logged in on time.
  4. If it is not needed in class, don’t bring it (ie: no audio players, game devices, phones, etc.)
  5. Illicit substances of any kind are strictly prohibited.
  6. Students may bring or purchase a snack for the class break; however, food is not to be consumed in the classroom.
  7. Students are not to be anywhere on campus except the classroom, RBS Café, and restroom facilities. Wandering campus before, during, or after class can result in dismissal from summer school.
  8. Students are required to exit the campus at the conclusion of the class day.
  9. 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.
