Invitations are based on district reading assessment scores, and parent requests for invitations will not be accepted for this summer program.   If your student has been selected to attend, the school will be in contact with you directly.

Please take a moment to review our policies:

Attendance Policy

To get the most fun and learning out of any summer program, students must come to school every day!  We expect every student to attend all 16 days of the program. If you already know that your child will miss more than two days of the summer program, please do not register. Spaces for each program are limited and reserved for those that can attend the entire program.

Conduct Policy

To ensure that the Elementary Summer Program is safe and fun for everyone involved, we hold students to the same standards of conduct as Bellevue students are held to during the school year. Students violating appropriate behavior code will be referred to the summer school administrator for discipline, which may range from an administrative conference up to and including expulsion from the summer program.

We want every student to have a positive experience, so we strive to work out any potential concerns with the child and the parent before withdrawing any child from the program. However, the Elementary Summer Program reserves the right to remove a child from school if their behavior is severely disruptive or creates a safety hazard. Students and staff are expected to meet these expectations:

  1. Show respect for yourself, your peers, and your surroundings.
  2. Come to class on time and ready to learn.
  3. Behave in a safe manner, keeping hands and feet to self.
  4. Remain on campus while school is in session
  5. Follow directions from summer school staff.

Students entering grades 1-5 will be invited to participate in the summer school program based on their Middle of Year reading data. Students with the highest priority are those who have multiple data markers showing a need for extended school year support in reading. Enrollment space is limited and cannot serve each child with an interest or need in attending our summer literacy camp. Please consider visiting our community engagement page to learn more about additional reading events occurring throughout the summer months!
