In case of illness, please call Mr. Mallet, summer school director, by 8:30 am at (404) 262-3032, ext. 1467. The student must bring a signed note from his/her parent the day following the absence.
Make-up work is the student’s responsibility. The student should consult class syllabi, classmates, or the teacher for assignments. If the absence occurs on the day of a scheduled test or quiz or the due date of a written assignment, the student completes that work on the day of return. If the absence occurs the day before the test, the student must take any assessment as scheduled. Once a student has arrived on campus, he/she may not leave campus until dismissed by the teacher.
If there is an emergency situation, parents must contact the summer school director. If a student has more than five late arrivals (after 8:10 am), he/she is in jeopardy of not receiving credit for the course. Doctor’s appointments must be scheduled after school hours.
Because summer school is very concentrated, an absence of one day is the equivalent of missing over a week of the regular school year. Therefore, having more than one absence will result in the withholding of credit for a course.
NOTE: Due to the full day schedule and the experiential nature of the Urban Experience course, an absence of more than four hours (half day) during Urban Experience will result in the withholding of the credit for the course.
Once a student has arrived on campus, he/she may not leave campus until dismissed by the teacher.
