    2021 年暑期學校資訊 

    The San Mateo Union High School District will offer four opportunities for students to recover or accumulate credits during the summer of 2021. There will be a session at the beginning of the summer for students to complete courses started on our Edgenuity platform - either in Credit Recovery or Independent Study. Second, there will be a set of in-person offerings (two sessions) for rising 12th Graders at three separate campuses. Third, English Learners (grades 10-12) will have opportunities to earn up to 10 credits at the Adult School. Finally, there will be a virtual, teacher-led program (two sessions) for all 10-12th grade students who prefer to take courses virtually from home.

    What follows are the details of these offerings:

    • Students in grades 10-12 (including non-grads [class of 2021]) who need to complete courses initiated in Edgenuity at any time from summer 2020-May 2021. Students making up courses from Summer 2020 will have access to CR/NC grades. All other makeups/course completions will receive a grade.
    • Rising 12th Grade students may take in-person Summer school. It will be held at Capuchino (for MHS/CHS seniors), Hillsdale (for AHS/HHS seniors) and San Mateo High School ( for BHS/SMHS seniors).  These classes are strongly recommended for seniors who have struggled with distance learning (via Zoom/Canvas).
    • In addition, students in English Language Development courses (CHS, HHS, MHS and SMHS) will also have the opportunity to take a hybrid/in-person Summer School program at the San Mateo Adult School. 
    • Finally, all students (grades 10-12) will have the opportunity to take teacher-led virtual courses (much like classes taught during the 2020-21 school year) via Zoom/Canvas for Credit Recovery in core subjects as well as Accelerated Geometry or Health (for first time credit - HHS students only). 
    • It should be noted that there are no “D-Make-ups” allowed this summer.

    How to Add/Change Summer School Classes

    • If you did not get into a class you requested, or you did not pass a class this semester, please see your counselor to request a new summer school course. 
    • Late registration is first-come, first-served! On June 2, 3 or 4 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the District Office.  If you did not sign up for summer school previously, your parent/guardian must be present at the time of registration or available by phone. Students cannot be registered for summer school at this point without school counselor and parent/guardian approval.   
    • To drop a class prior to June 2, email fwolfgramm@smuhsd.org and your counselor, and include your name, ID & the course. Without this information students cannot be dropped.
    • Students who fail to show will be dropped after the second day of each session.
