*****Classes may be remote, blended, or face to face depending on local health advice and/or the desire of the educator.

Welcome to Summer School 2020. We are pleased to have Helena High School as the host school for classes. This make-up summer school option is a chance to make up credits for your high school graduation plan. You have an opportunity to earn .5 credit for each class you complete.

Dates:             Wednesday, July 1st through Wednesday, July 29th (20 days total).

Daily Schedule:

Period 1           8:00-10:00 am
Period 2           10:00-12:00 pm
Period 3           12:00-2:00 pm

Attendance:
Regular attendance is an essential ingredient to guarantee your success in summer school. A 3rd absence (for any reason) will result in the loss of credit and you will be dropped from the class without a refund. It doesn’t matter if your absences are excused; on the 3rd absence, you will lose credit. An absence is defined as not being present. Schedule appointments before or after class. Students are expected to be LIVE during class time.

Code of Conduct:
The same rules of conduct are in effect at summer school as during the regular school year. If you demonstrate inappropriate behavior and are asked to leave the classroom, this will constitute an absence. You are expected to be productive during your time here, for this reason, you may also be counted absent if you are asked to leave the classroom for sleeping in class or being nonproductive. If you are asked to leave the classroom, you and your parent may be required to meet with the teacher and/or administrator to reconcile the problem before you can return to school.

Materials:
Each student is required to have a Chrome book or computer, paper, pencils, and pens. The teachers will provide on-line textbooks and other materials, as necessary.

Cell Phones and Personal Listening Devices:
Students are permitted to possess cell phones and personal listening devices within the building before and after school and passing periods. They are NOT permitted during class. Parent pick up of the phone may be required for violations.

General Information and Questions:
Students will receive a calendar to remind them of attendance days. If you have any questions before summer classes begin, please call Mr. Willie Schlepp at Office: 406-324-2205 or Office Cell: 406-459-2383.

2020 Summer School Calendar:

  • You may not miss more than 2 class periods. You will be dropped from your class on the third absence and not earn credit.
  • You are absent from a class if you are NOT LIVE (On-Line) during your allotted time.
  • All Helena Public School rules apply to summer school and discipline will be handled according to school board policies.
