Absences & Scheduling Requests

All Summer School courses run Monday June 21st- Friday July 23rd. 
Monday, July 5th is a Summer School holiday.
 

Absences for online courses are defined as being unable to log in during the class time. 

 

Absences longer than 3 days require prior approval from the Summer School administrators. Email summerschool@materdei.org.

 

If the absence is due to a student’s current school not letting out until after our Summer School starts, we can most likely accommodate this. If a student will be attending Summer School purely for enrichment (not for a grade or to meet any placement or other requirements), they can miss more than 3 days.

 

**Our online courses are mostly synchronous (live) and students should plan to be available during the class time.**

The schedule cannot be finalized until we know how many students will enroll in each class. Please note any scheduling requests, including preferred class period or activities to schedule around, when you register.
 
Requests made by the Priority registration deadline of May 10th, 2021 are more likely to be granted.

Students should not plan to miss more than 3 class days. This includes missing required time online. Exception: student's middle school or high school (other than MDHS) ends up to one week after our Summer School begins (note on registration form). All other absence requests extending more than 3 days must be made in advance by emailing summerschool@materdei.org.

Absences for online courses are defined as being unable to log in during the class time. 

This includes all course types and all formats.
 
Summer School closes on July 23rd- all student work and final exams must be turned into our instructors by that date.
 
Early Final Exams will require approval from the Summer School Office and instructor, and an Early Final Exam fee for each early exam. Further information about requesting an Early Final Exam will be sent out after Summer School begins. 
Student schedules will be emailed a few days prior to the start of Summer School. If you requested certain class periods and registered by May 10th, 2021, we can almost always accommodate these requests. This means that, for example, if you requested period 2, you can plan for period 2. 
With the online format for most courses, students will be able to access course materials and live lessons from most any location. To participate in online Summer School courses, students will need a strong and stable internet connection, an electronic device, and should be available during the class times. Summer School courses will run in CA time. 
 
If the student is not a US citizen or Green Card holder and not an MDHS International student, they may not participate. MDHS International students must have the appropriate approvals to earn credits from US courses. MDHS International students may check with our International Student Director, Ms. Lee.
