Students taking summer school: Please remember if you are enrolled in a go-ahead class (ie. World History, US History, a yearlong math class etc…) you must fully complete semester 1 and semester 2 of the course. Failure to complete both semesters will result being enrolled in the full year during the school year. You will not be permitted to “finish” the course during the school year on-line or wait until the following summer. If you are taking a summer course, your summer transcript must be submitted to the Counseling Office no later than August 13th. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian and student to ensure that the counseling office Registrar has received your transcript. It is imperative that this information is received so proper placement into Fall classes can be adjusted if needed.
