Due to the excessive about of tardies to first hour, here is the policy moving forward:

Summer School 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:

Summer School will be held at Lanphier High School from June 14 - July 22. This is a great opportunity for students to earn credits that they may have lost during this trying school year. This year, students who would like to work ahead to gain extra credits are also allowed to attend Summer School. Lanphier’s Summer School is a free program and available to all students who actively attended LHS during the 2020-21 School year. 

All students who are participating in Summer School will hold on to their school issued Chromebook at the end of this school year to use during the Lanphier Summer School program.


First Hour:  8:00 - 10:30am

Second Hour:  10:35am - 1:00pm

Class is held Monday - Thursday

Most of the classes are taught through the Edmentum platform, which allows students to move at their own pace. Regardless of the format of class, all classes are led by certified teachers. 

Some students may finish their classes before the July 22, 2021 end date. However, there are three classes that require attendance from start to finish: Speech, Step Up to High School and Driver’s Education.  


Students who miss Summer School four days will result in students being dropped from the program.  Every effort will be made to contact students before they are dropped.  Tardies count as 1/4th of absence.  


Students must attend Summer School according to the attendance policy outlined and complete all aspects of the assigned class. They must pass with a class average of 60% to receive credit.    

The last day to register is June 17, 2021.
