Any student leaving class before 12:45 pm will be counted as absent. Students withdrawn from summer school due to absences or tardies will not receive credit or a refund. The Department of Education requires students to have a certain amount of seat time to earn their credit.
3 Tardies = 1 Absence. If a student is absent or tardy, passes will be given.
1 Absent + 1 Tardy = Drop from course.
4 Tardies = Drop from course.

Online Courses
Students that have registered to take online summer school courses must still report to Sahuarita High School. Teachers will be present to help keep students on track for completion. Parents will be notified if student is not making satisfactory progress. Contact will be made by phone. Students must stay on task for their target completion date and must complete the course in its entirety by the end of each semester. Grading will be based on a whole number grade. There will be no rounding up of grades to the next letter grade (i.e. A 79% will be the final grade of a C and will not be adjusted to a B). Students have the choice during each semester to retake assessments during class in order to attain a higher score.

Food and Drink
Food or drinks are permitted in classrooms at teacher’s discretion. Food and drink is not permitted in the computer lab or library, except bottled water.

The Sahuarita Unified School District policies and procedures are in effect throughout summer school. Discipline infractions will not be tolerated since summer school is a privilege, not a right. A student with habitual discipline infractions will be withdrawn from summer school and will not receive credit or a refund. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Defazio at [email protected].
