  • You can find a map of the classrooms on the Benicia HS website
  • Please plan to drop off and pick up your child promptly.
  • For those on campus for both periods, a scheduled break will take place from 10:00-10:15.
  • If you choose, please send your student with a snack. The cafeteria will be closed for the summer.

 Attendance – Attendance will be taken daily by the instructing teacher.

  • There are no excused or pre-planned absences!
  • Because of the short duration of summer school, and state mandated policy, students cannot be absent for more than one day.
  • Students who miss more than one day will be dropped from the class without credit.
  • Students will be considered tardy if they are not in their seat prepared for class. Two tardies will be counted as one absence.

Behavior – Due to the short duration of summer school and the intensity of instruction needed, classroom disruptions cannot be tolerated. Teachers will explain their expectations on the first day of summer school, and students need to adhere to these expectations at all times.

Any behavior that warrants removal from the classroom or the attention of administration will result in a student being dropped from Summer School.

Dress Code: All dress codes for Benicia Unified School District apply to Summer School. Hats, headgear, bandanas, and suspenders may not be worn during the school day.
