Once a student attends one day of Parkview Summer School, no refunds will be approved. No refunds are approved for students withdrawn for attendance or discipline issues. Refunds are granted in full if a class is canceled. In that case, parents may request a refund by contacting the Community School office.
Parkview Summer School is in session from Monday, June 12, to Thursday, July 6. Because of the length of the class (four hours) and the shortness of the summer school semester (17 days), students are required to attend class for a minimum of 16 days.
A student may miss no more than one day of summer school. On the second absence or a combination of absences and tardies equaling two absences, the student will be withdrawn from the class with no refund.
There are no exceptions to this policy. If the student and parent know that the student cannot meet this attendance requirement, the student and parent should consider another summer school format, such as Gwinnett Online Campus.
There are no excused absences for summer school. All absences count including, but not limited to: illness, medical emergencies, death in the family, or vacation. Summer School will follow the GCPS COVID protocol.
Tardiness affects learning and is disruptive to the class. See the consequences below:
Late to class (after the bell rings, in the first 30 minutes) = 1 tardy
3 tardies = 1 absence
Late to class (more than 30 minutes) = 1 absence
2 absences = Withdrawal from summer school (no refund)
Conduct, Dress Code. and Electronic Devices
Classroom disruptions or disregard of directions of the teacher or administrators will NOT be tolerated. Consequences are at the discretion of the administrators and may include a warning, suspension, expulsion from summer school and/or a county disciplinary hearing.
The wearing of, or absence of, any clothing which is considered a distraction to the learning process and any clothing with offensive words and/or design and/or advertising of drugs or alcoholic beverages will NOT be allowed. Shoes must be worn at all times.
Students should bring their fully-charged Parkview-issued Chromebooks to class each day.
Cell phones and other personal devices MAY NOT be out/used in classes. Phones are available in the H Building office for emergency use.
Upon request of a staff member, the student is immediately to turn off and put away the electronic item in his/her book bag, pocket, or purse. A referral may be sent to the summer school office. Referral consequences can include suspension for a day of classes, which would count as an absence for attendance purposes.
Students should not bring expensive electronic devices to school. Students are ultimately responsible for any loss, damage, or theft of their personal property.
Food and Beverages
Because most of the campus will be utilized by Trickum Middle School's SEA program, Parkview Summer School will not be able to use the Cafeteria/Commons Area.
Local vendors will be selling meal items for summer school students during the half-hour lunch break. Students also may bring their lunch from home.
Vending of food or beverages during other breaks may be available in H Building; still, students are permitted to bring items from home.
Students on campus for both 1st and 2nd period classes may not leave campus between classes for any reason. Leaving campus will result in a one-day suspension (an absence for attendance purposes).
Students are expected to behave in a courteous manner within hallways and eating areas. Breaking in line, throwing food or objects, leaving trays or trash, standing on tables or chairs, or making loud noises are not acceptable. It is the responsibility of each student to clean up their during lunch. Trash cans will be provided for this purpose. If a student shuns this responsibility, then consequences will be assigned.
For safety reasons, glass containers or bottles are not allowed. Damage done to carpet, furniture, or equipment as a result of this food/drink will be the responsibility of the student(s) bringing this food into a classroom. Clean up or restitution of damaged items may be required.
