Students enrolled in a six-week class may be dropped from class when they have been absent three consecutive days or five days total — for any reason. Students enrolled in a three-week class may be dropped when they have been absent three times for any reason.
Students who plan to be gone on vacation, camps or clinics for three or more school days should not register for Summer School.
If a student is ill and cannot attend school, they should make arrangements with their teacher to complete make-up work. Absences
due to late registration or illness count as part of the three or five day total allowed absences.
Students who are absent the first day of summer school without contacting the summer school office prior to 12:30 p.m. on May 25, 2016 will be dropped from their class. Students could then re-register for courses during the late registration. No tuition refunds will be made after the fifth day.
Students should not come onto the North Star grounds before 7:45 in the morning. Students should leave school grounds after their dismissal class and they must be off school grounds by 12:15 p.m.
Tardiness creates difficulties for students in keeping up with class work. It causes disruptions in the routine of a class and interferes with the rights of the other students to an environment conducive to learning. If a student misses 30 minutes or more of class, an absence will be recorded. Classroom teachers and school administrators will work closely with the student and parent/legal guardian concerning tardiness. Students who are tardy more than ten times to a class may be removed from the class.
The rules and regulations for summer school are the same as they are during the regular school year and all students are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner. If students are involved in fighting or display other inappropriate behavior, they may be dropped from summer school. If this occurs, tuition will not be refunded, and the student will not receive credit for their classes. Students who violate summer school rules may be dropped from the class with no credit and no tuition reimbursement.
