With Governor Ever’s order that schools remain closed through June 30th, we are unable to offer our summer school program in its traditional manner. Our team is currently working through updates to our programming to ensure kindergarten through 8th grade students have access to additional learning opportunities in literacy and mathematics, and to support high school students interested in pursuing credit-bearing courses over the summer. Adjustments to our offerings are outlined below, and additional information regarding registration and enrollment will be provided in the coming weeks.
High School Summer School Offerings
After much consideration, we have elected to proceed with the majority of 9-12 summer school courses. Courses will be administered online through a virtual learning model and will run during the originally scheduled time frame (Monday, June 22 - Friday, July 24 with no classes on Friday, July 3 and Monday, July 6). Students currently enrolled in these courses will remain enrolled. Project Strive Boot Camp will be postponed with tentative dates of Aug 10-21, 2020. We are hopeful that this timeline will permit us to offer these courses in-person. The only courses that we are unable to offer through this format are our Summer Theater course, Summer Work Experience, our ACT Prep course, and Independent Skill Building; unfortunately, those courses have been cancelled. The High School Course Offerings brochure may be viewed below:

After a great deal of consideration, Elmbrook has elected to modify the approach to Kindergarten-8th grade summer programming. All K-8 enrichment programs are canceled. Current 1st-8th grade students will have access to virtual literacy and mathematics courses.

Kindergarten and First Grade Momentum courses will be postponed until August, with tentative dates of August 10-21. (We are hopeful that this timeline will permit us to offer these courses in-person.)
Courses families do not need to re-register for are: Kindergarten and First Grade Momentum, 8th Grade High School Course, band or strings.
