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. Tardiness beyond 5 minutes constitutes an absence. Students are to remain in class during class time. Take restroom breaks between class periods.

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 due to 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.

Each student is required to bring paper, pencils, and pens. The teachers will provide textbooks and other materials as necessary.

Drinks and Food:
They are allowed in the classrooms per each individual teacher’s discretion. If allowed to consume food, put all litter into wastebaskets and leave area cleaner than you found it. Failure to do so will result in losing the privilege.

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 324-2205. Once classes have started messages can be left at 324-2200.

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 more than 5 minutes late.
  • All Helena Public School rules apply to summer school and discipline will be handled according to school board policies.
