Students enrolling in SIP must commit to our attendance policy. Students with prior commitments (e.g., other summer programs, vacation plans, etc.) that will cause them to miss several days are strongly encouraged to apply for the Self-Paced Program. This course allows more flexibility to accommodate competing priorities. We understand that illness and family emergencies happen during the program, and students may need an excuse from class. Students or their parents/guardians must communicate any absence to classroom teachers before the classroom start time on the day of their absence.
