Attendance Policy

Summer school is a condensed program and as such, daily attendance is vital to course completion. 

Students who have more than three unexcused absences (which equals 12.5% of the program), may not receive credit for a course. 

Students who have excused absences, in alignment with our Board of Education policy, must complete make-up work as assigned by their teacher in order to receive credit for the course. Failure to complete assigned work may result in denial of credit. 

An absence, tardiness or early departure may be excused if due to personal illness, illness or death in the family, religious observance, quarantine, required court appearances, attendance at organized medical clinics, approved college visits, approved cooperative work programs, or military obligations.

Tardy Students

Students who arrive to any class more than 30 minutes late will be counted as absent for that class. Students who arrive to any class less than 30 minutes late will be assigned lunch detention.

Behavioral Expectations

Students must abide by the PBCSD Code of Conduct just as they would be expected to during the school year. If a student’s behavior is such that it would result in an out of school suspension during the regular school year, the student may be removed from the summer school program.

Student Dress Code

All students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and dress appropriately for school and school functions. Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance. Teachers and all other district personnel should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and help students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in the school setting. 

A student’s dress, grooming, and appearance, shall:

  • be safe, appropriate, and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process;
  • be covered from armpit to mid-thigh with no undergarments or bare skin visible. This code does not apply to school-sanctioned uniforms and costumes approved by the relevant administrator for athletic, choral, or dramatic performances;
  • include safe and appropriate footwear at all times;
  • not include items that are vulgar, obscene, or libelous, or denigrate others on account of race, color, weight, religion, religious practice, creed, national origin, ethnic group, gender (identity and expression), sex, sexual orientation or disability;
  • not promote and/or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs and/or encourage other illegal or violent activities.


Drop-off and Pick-up

Students who are not taking a bus to school should be dropped off and picked up at the entrance by the “new gym.” 

Initial Course Credit

Our health, economics, and government courses may be taken for initial course credit. Students in these courses must attend daily. If a student has an excused absence, they must complete all assigned make-up work for the course in order to receive course credit. Additionally, students must complete all work assigned outside of class. 


Leaving Early

Students who will be leaving before the end of the day (2 p.m.), will need written parent permission to do so, and MUST sign out in the summer school office. Students who leave before the end of the school day will not be allowed to ride the bus home. 

Regents Exams and Final Exams

According to New York State guidelines: To receive credit, the student must successfully complete the make-up credit program and demonstrate mastery of the learning outcomes for the subject, including passing the Regents examination in the subject or other assessment required for graduation, if applicable.
