Buses are available during the summer to transport students attending any of the Summer Academies at either location. 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:
1) Lucille Whitehead Intermediate School (Grades TK-7) - 20 Days of School (Dates: June 1 to June 29)
On the third (3rd) absence the student is dropped from the program.
2) Waterford High School (Grades 8–12) - 26 Days of School (Dates: June 1 to July 13)
First Semester (Dates: June 1 to June 22)
Second Semester (Dates: June 23 to July 13)
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 during make-up Fridays. The dates for make up Friday are June 16th and July 14th. The time for make-up Friday is from 8:00 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Do not be late.
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.
