Buses are available during the summer to transport students attending either Summer Academy. Please visit the Bus Routes page to fill out a summer ridership application, even if your child rides the bus during the school year.
The Waterford Unified School District summer school follows the California Department of Education’s positive attendance policy, which means either a student is present or is not, regardless of the reason.
Therefore, the attendance policy is as follows
Moon / LWIS/WHS School sites (Grades K-7) - 20 Days of School (Dates: June 2 to June 29)
On the third (3rd) absence the student is dropped from the program.
Waterford High School (Grades 8–12) - 26 Days of School (Dates: June 2 to July 14)
First Semester (Dates: June 2 to June 22)
Second Semester (Dates: June 23 to July 14)
On the third (3rd) absence the student is dropped from the program. Students in grades 8 – 12 can make up one (1) absence per semester in Saturday School. The dates for Saturday School are TBD. The time for Saturday School is from 8:00 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Do not be late. The classroom is to be determined and a letter will be sent home prior to the Saturday School.
Each student is expected to be in their seats ready to learn when the bell rings.
The following is the summer school tardy policy
Three (3) tardies = One (1) Absence
Students in grades 8-12th who exceed 9 tardies will be dropped from summer school (NO EXCEPTIONS).
Any combination of tardies and absences per semester exceeding three (3) day will be dropped (NO EXCEPTIONS).
Students must also follow all rules and policies of the Waterford Unified School District. Discipline issues will not be tolerated during summer school. Any student who does not follow the rules and policies of the Waterford Unified School District will be dropped from summer school.
