Enrollment for all summer school classes is done through PowerSchool. Please see the instructions on the Enrollment page of the Summer School Website.

After your requests have been submitted, they are processed either by enrolling the student in the class or placing them on the wait list. Then the requests are deleted.

On Monday, May 1st, after 3:00 p.m., parents and students will be able to login to the Parent/Student PowerSchool Portal and click on the Summer School Schedule icon. It will show which course the student is enrolled in. If your student doesn’t have a schedule, then they have been placed on a wait list.

1-7(A) 7:00 – 9:20 Class
9-17(A) 9:30 – 11:50 Class
2-17 (A) 7:30 – 12:00 Class

The teachers listed are not necessarily the teachers teaching that course. Teachers and classrooms will be added later.

If you do not see a course listed that you have registered for, it is because the class you registered for did not make or the class is currently showing full and your name has been added to a waiting list. Please check the website for classes that did not make or have a waiting list.
