Any student who qualifies for the F/R lunch program who does not complete their summer school course work will be ineligible to participate in summer school the following year through the F/R lunch funding.


There are NO REFUNDS for online courses for ANY reason.

Withdrawal From Courses

When a student withdraws during the first three days of Summer School from both Face-to-Face and MVP Online/LMSD Online Health Courses, no record will be made on the student's transcript. After that, if a student withdraws during the first three weeks of a Summer School course, one of the following notations will be made on the student's transcript for that course:

  1. "WP" for Withdrew/Passing
  2. "WF" for Withdrew/Failing

When a student withdraws after the first three weeks an "F" for Failure will be recorded on the transcript.


Students may have access to their computers over the course of summer school if they are enrolled in an online option through MVP on the LMSD Online Summer School Health. 

All student computers will need to be returned to their home school on or before Tuesday, August 6, 2024.

If you fail to return the laptop by this date, you may not be eligible to receive your laptop for the early distribution rollout.

MVP/LMSD Online Summer School Health Course Orientation

There will be MVP/LMSD Online Summer School Health Course Orientation at LM and HHS during the school day (Lunch and Learn) in early June. Students who have enrolled in an MVP or in the LMSD Online Summer School Health course are expected to attend. If you are unable to attend, there is a link to the online orientation that can be emailed to you.

Students should expect to spend approximately 3-4 hours per day, 5 days per week for the seven weeks on the course work. Since this is an average, your child may need to spend more or less time to complete the course work.
