2016-17 Summer School
Waterford Unified School District is offering two summer school programs this summer. The first is a four week K - 6th grade program to be held at Richard M. Moon Primary School. The second is a six week 7th-8th grade program for students in need of remediation located on the Waterford High School campus. Also offered at WHS Summer School will be the Freshman Core Requirements for incoming freshmen and Physical Education for incoming sophomores. The extra instruction that students receive during the summer program will help to fill gaps in learning, reinforce important skills, and better prepare them for the next school year.
Attendance on the first day is required to ensure your place in class. The size of this year's student enrollment in summer school is expected to be sizeable, therefore, space is limited and students who have enrolled in this program but do not attend the first day will be dropped and placed on a waiting list for available space. It is important that your child appear on the first day of summer school to ensure his or her placement.
Summer School Attendance & Discipline Policy
The Waterford Unified School District summer school follows the California Department of Education’s positive attendance policy, which means either a student is present or is not, regardless of the reason.

On the third (3rd) absence the student is dropped from the program.
Waterford High School (Grades 7–12) - 26 Days of School
On the third (3rd) absence the student is dropped from the program. Students in grades 7 – 12 can make up one (1) absence per semester in Saturday School. The dates for Saturday School are TBD. The time for Saturday School is from 8:00 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Do not be late! The classsroom is to be determined and a letter will be sent home prior to the Saturday School.
Each student is expected to be in their seats ready to learn when the bell rings.
The following is the summer school tardy policy:
