FREQUENTLY ASKED SUMMER SCHOOL QUESTIONS
Question #1: Can I return my registration form(s) before March 30th?
Answer: YES, registration will begin March 30th and any form returned on or before that day
will be entered on a lottery basis. Registration forms will be mixed, shuffled, and pulled at
random to ensure all district children will have a fair opportunity to enroll in the more popular
classes.
Question #2: What grade does my child register for in Summer School?
Answer: Summer School is a continuation of the regular school year. Therefore, your son or
daughter will register for classes offered to that grade. (ex. Student A was in 4th grade during
the 2014-2015 school year. Student A will register as a 4th grade student for Summer School)
Question #3: Who qualifies for Summer School?
Answer: Summer School is offered to students that meet one of the following criteria:
1) District Resident
2) Student open-enrolled into the School District of Slinger and occupied a seat
during the 2014-2015 school year.
3) Out of district student, if space is available AND tuition is required.
Question #4: Why must I turn my form in no later than April 24th?
Answer: Once classes are set, teachers must be hired, supplies ordered and bus routes
established. All of these tasks take time to complete. Late registrants particularly affect bus
routes. Therefore, any student who registers after April 24th will have to use an established bus
stop if a seat is available on the bus or parents may be required to provide their own
transportation.
Question #5: Why must I select three choices per period for each child when I register?
Answer: Quite often someone will sign up for a class that is full or for which they do not
qualify. In the past, this has meant many phone calls to solve the problem, which causes delays
in confirming class lists and creates the problems described in answer #4.
Question #6: If summer school is voluntary for most students why is it necessary to call and
report a student’s absence?
Answer: In these days of two-income families, it is possible for a student to miss the bus while
his/her parents are at work assuming that he/she is safe at summer school. For younger
children this is a definite safety concern and for older children there is a definite behavior
concern. Either way, we need your help to make sure that your children are where they are
supposed to be.
Question #7: Why can’t I bring my child to summer school on the first day and then expect
him/her to ride the bus home?
Answer: Students will most likely have a different summer school bus route and driver than
during the regular school year. If a parent drops off a child, he/she will not know the new driver
and will have no idea which bus to take home. This can be a traumatic experience for your child
on the first day of Summer School.
Question #8: What if my child needs to be picked up at one location and dropped off at
another?
Answer: Parents should identify such multiple pick-up and drop-off points on the registration
form. The school district will attempt to meet all such requests submitted on the summer school
registration forms. All requests for such service after April 24th should be called in to the bus
company office. However, such late requests may not be honored after the summer school bus
routes have been determined.
