CALL-IN PROCEDURE FOR ABSENCES:

If a student will be absent at any level or for any course, the parent is required to call the school on the morning of the absence between 7:45am – 8:30am to report it. All absences must be accounted for and verified. This means that if parents don’t call the school, we will be required to call the parents. Please help by calling in all absences, just as you would during the regular school year. That phone number beginning 5/30/17, the first day of summer school, will be: 818-597-4261. For all other inquiries, the regular school number will remain: 818-707-7922.

CLASS LISTS AND WAIT-LISTS:

Class lists for all levels and courses for students who have pre-registered will be posted above by Saturday afternoon, May 28th.

We may move students between classes as necessary to balance classes at any time.

All students MUST be in class on the first day of summer school to secure their seat in the class. Failure to attend on the first day will result in the student being dropped. If there is a valid excuse for an absence, parents must call-in the morning of the first day of summer school to the school office so that the space is held for that student.

Students on a wait-list should come to summer school on the first day in order to hold their place on the wait-list. If there is still no space available after attendance has been verified, then the wait-listed students should contact the school on the second day to see if space has become available. Any student with an unverified absence on the first day will be dropped and the space offered to a wait-listed student.

The State of California no longer provides funding to any school district for Summer School classes. For the 6th year, the Oak Park Education Foundation (FRIENDS), a private foundation has agreed to help keep the tradition of a high quality summer school program in Oak Park and to continue as administrators of the program. The classes offered by the Oak Park Education Foundation summer program adhere to the same curriculum and receive the same credit as those offered by the Oak Park Unified School District during the regular school year.
FRIENDS must charge students who attend Summer School to cover teacher and staff salaries, plus the additional mandatory employer costs, rental of the facilities, insurance requirements, utility charges, and materials fees.
