Registration: REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS MAY 20th. Classes will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Either the postmarked date or the day it is brought into the Elementary Office will be marked on each registration form. Registrations will be processed in the order they are received. Due to low enrollment, some classes may be dropped. Students will register for classes by the grade they are going into next fall.
Parental Support: All students are encouraged to take courses involving reading or math. Parents will be informed if their child has been recommended for a particular course to address a student’s needs in reading or math. The educational staff at Johnson Creek appreciates the support of parents by registering their child in the recommended class(es).
Program Locations: Most morning classes will be held in the elementary building. Some classes will be held in the Middle/Senior High School. All students will be assisted in reaching these classes. Specific information will be included in your child’s summer school class schedule confirmation that you will receive prior to the start of classes.
Daily Schedule: The daily program schedule consists of four class periods with each period lasting 55 minutes. All classes meet Monday – Thursday. There are no classes the week of June 29 through July 2nd (for the Fourth of July holiday). Students are encouraged to take 4 classes.

Transportation: Busing is available for students who are normally transported to school during the regular school year. For all others, transportation is a parental responsibility. Please do not send children to school before 7:50 a.m. and pick them up promptly following classes. WE CANNOT SUPERVISE CHILDREN BEFORE AND AFTER SUMMER SCHOOL CLASSES except for those registered for afternoon summer school classes or summer recreation activities.
Pick-up & Drop off: Pick up and drop off will remain the same as during the regular school year.
Walkers/bike riders should walk along the high school gym to the elementary school, staying away from the parking lot area where buses are coming into the school parking lot. Bicycle racks are in front of the elementary school. All bicycles must be parked in bicycle racks. While on school grounds, students must walk, not ride their bicycles.
All children walking to and from summer school should cross in the crosswalks when crossing any road on foot. Crossing guards are posted at the following two intersections: Milwaukee St. /Watertown St. and South St./Milwaukee St..
Summer School Staff: Certified teachers will teach all summer school programs. Efforts will be made to keep pupil-teacher ratios at a level which fosters opportunities for maximum pupil-teacher instructional interaction. When appropriate, teacher aides will be hired to assist the professional staff.
Fees: There is a $10.00 registration fee to participate in summer school. In addition there may be some classes that charge an additional fee (see class descriptions). Fees are payable upon receipt of your child’s summer school schedule, or on the first day of summer school at the elementary school office. Note: the $10.00 registration fee is not applied if the student only participates in afternoon activities.
Attendance: All enrolled students are expected to attend summer school on a regular basis. Students may be excused for the following:
1. Family Vacations
2. Summer Camps or Clinics
3. Illness/Doctor Appointments
4. Family Emergency

Dress: Students may dress casually, but should always dress appropriately. Students need to wear shoes that can be worn on the gym floor, out of doors, or in classrooms.
Conduct: Regular school year rules will be followed during the summer program. Students will be expected to go home when their instructional periods end. If students attend only one or two course periods, they will not be allowed to wait a long period of time for rides, or to wait for other students who are still involved in instructional activities. Unruly or disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.
Program Visitation by Students Not Enrolled: Because of liability, students not enrolled will not be allowed on campus.
