High School Summer Assignments
Students and Parents:
Please read the letter that applies to you, PHS (for students going into grades 10-12) or 8th Grade (for students going into grade 9), as these contain specific directions on how to access PHS Summer Assignments 2019 through Schoology. Use the "Quick Materials Needed Guide" to see what resources and/or texts you might need to complete your summer assignment(s). Note that most assignments DO NOT require a book/textbook. Also, the PHS Library is open for students to access and/or print (if needed) summer assignments during the following days and hours: Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 12 PM and 1 PM – 3 PM. (The library is closed from 12 PM – 1 PM.) Also, the library is closed on July 4 and July 5 in observance of the 4th of July Holiday.
- Where do I obtain the materials and/or resources to complete the summer assignment?
Resources and materials to complete the summer assignment and where to procure those resources and materials are identified within the assignment that is posted online under the curriculum or high school quick links. The PHS library has been targeted as the place to receive materials if a student missed receiving them prior to the end of the school year. You may sign out a book or materials between 10 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 3 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding the July 4th holiday. Please ask the library clerk for assistance.
- Must I complete this summer assignment if I enrolled in the Parkland School District after the summer session?
Yes, regardless when a student enters an honors or AP course, if the course requires the completion of a summer assignment, the student will be expected to complete the assignment within 30 calendar days from the first day the student enters the class. Students submitting the assignment late will have points deducted for each day late as identified by the teacher’s grading and class management guidelines. After the fifth day late, the grade will be a zero.
- May I submit the completed assignment earlier than the required date?
Students are highly encouraged to submit on the due date but early submissions may be submitted to the student’s assistant principal. A verification receipt will be issued when the assignment is received.
- What happens if the assignment is late or is not submitted?
Students submitting the assignment late will have points deducted per day as identified by the teacher’s grading and class management guidelines. On the fifth late day, the student will receive a zero for that assignment.
- Is the assignment graded and what is the value of the assignment?
Each assignment will be graded as described in the assignment itself. Point values will vary from course to course, but all assignments will be graded.
- Do we require a summer assignment for all courses?
Summer assignments are required only for those Honors and AP subjects listed on the Parkland High School website.
- Whom should I contact if I have questions?
If you have a question about the assignment, please contact the person listed in the assignment or the teacher who is listed as the contact person in each content area.
If you have any other questions, please call Tammy Bennick, Assistant Principal : 610.351.5600 : firstname.lastname@example.org
