7th & 8th Grade Summer School Policies
Space is limited, and students are placed in class on a first come, first served basis. Classes with multiple sections offered are assigned on a random basis. Registration is considered complete when all required forms are completed and payment has cleared. By enrolling in LCFEF Summer School, the student and the parent both verify that they have read, understand, and agree to abide by LCFEF Summer School's CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINE POLICY and TECHNOLOGY, DIGITAL DEVICE, AND GENERATIVE AI POLICY.
Tuition: 2024 enrichment classes for 7th and 8th grade cost $500.
Enrollment Minimums: All courses need a minimum of 15 students enrolled in order for the course to run. Courses lacking minimum enrollment numbers by 5:00 pm on May 17, 2024 will be canceled and tuition refunded.
Class, teachers and room confirmations will be e-mailed the week before the start of classes.
Students are encouraged to attend class daily. Many of these courses are project-based and students will fall behind their peers impacting the overall class experience for themselves and those around them. Extended absences will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Students with excessive absences may be dropped from the class and no refunds will be given. There are no grades for enrichment courses, but teachers will communicate weekly with parents indicating student progress.
MAXIMUM CLASS SIZE POLICY
LCFEF Summer School strives to keep class sections between 20-25 students.
FINANCIAL AID POLICY
Limited funds are available for financial aid. Requests for financial aid should be made directly to the LCFEF Summer School via email to info@LCFEFSummerSchool.org. Documentation verifying financial need will be required. Determination of eligibility will be at the sole discretion of the LCFEF Summer School committee. Financial Aid requests must be submitted no later than May 1, 2024.
Tuition, minus a $100 handling fee and credit card processing fees, will be returned for any reason, provided the request is made in writing by email to info@LCFEFSummerSchool.org and received prior to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 17, 2024. The LCFEF Summer School Board will consider a 50% refund (minus $100 handling fee and credit card fees) for a verified death in the family or a verified student illness (doctor’s note required) which precludes a student from attending summer school, providing the request is made prior to the first day of summer school. NO REFUNDS FOR ANY REASON WILL BE GIVEN OR CONSIDERED OUTSIDE OF THIS POLICY.
RETURNED CHECK POLICY
Returned checks will be subject to a $50.00 fee and enrollment will not be processed until the check clears the bank and the fee is paid.
No supervision is provided outside of class time.
All La Cañada High School rules will apply at all times during Summer School. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a non-disruptive manner and follow the LCFEF Summer School Conduct and Discipline Policy. Teachers will have the discretion to ask students to leave class if they are disruptive. If a student engages in behavior that would result in a school suspension during the regular academic year, the student will be dropped from the summer school program. No refund will be given.
FULL CLASSES & WAIT LIST POLICIES
When classes fill, students may join the wait list. At such time that more space is available in the section, parents will be contacted and enrollment priority will proceed in order that students were added to the wait list.
LCFEF Summer School follows the La Cañada High School Dress Code Policy. Students should at all times be dressed in appropriate school attire. Bathing suits, revealing clothing and bare feet are not permitted. Discretion of school personnel will prevail in determining appropriate summer school attire.
