Incoming Freshmen Summer Bridge Courses

 

The Freshman Summer Bridge program is designed to prepare students for the rigor of high school studies by reviewing the fundamentals of math, reading and language arts that students may not have mastered during remote learning, while introducing new material needed to succeed in high school college prep and honors courses. In addition, students will be taught effective study skills and time management methods that will assist them in balancing their school work with the demands of participation in athletics, leadership and/or the workplace. Students will also be introduced to our Student Leadership and Activities program with the opportunity to work together on planning upcoming freshman events.

RULES AND PROCEDURES

 

 ATTENDANCE

* To ensure credit for summer school, daily attendance is essential. Exceeding two absences will constitute "no credit" for the course. Family vacations are not sufficient reason for absence. If a student is absent, a parent or guardian must phone the attendance office (310-547-1138) to verify the absence. A written excuse is to be brought to the attendance office prior to returning to class. A written excuse is also necessary for any release other than illness.

* Three tardies or early releases equal one absence. No "excused tardies" are issued during the summer session.

* Students must be present on July 22 for the final exam. No early or make-up exams will be given. A student not present on that day will receive a grade of zero for the exam.

* Students must return all loaned books to the school on July 22.

* Report cards will be mailed home on Monday, July 25, 2022.
