L-W 210 Hosts Summer School
Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Lincoln-Way High School District 210 is hosting summer school classes for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors looking to get ahead by taking their choice of required classes or electives and for students who need to retake a class.

Classes are being held at Lincoln-Way East, 201 Colorado Avenue in Frankfort and Lincoln-Way Central, 1801 E. Lincoln Highway in New Lenox.

A variety of classes were popular by the 1,300 students taking first semester classes, according to Dr. Brian Murphy, Director of Technology, who organized summer school. Classes include: Reading Seminar, Keyboarding, History of Western Civilization, English 2, 3, 4, American Civics, Art Fundamentals, Intro to Economics, Physics, Chemistry, Geometry, U.S. History, and Freshman Starts.

About 1,100 students are signed up to take second semester classes also, Murphy added.
Classes for first semester are running from Monday, June 165to Wednesday, July 1 from 7:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Second semester runs from Monday, July 6 to Wednesday July 22, also from 7:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

The summer school program is a self-supporting program. Students who reside in Lincoln-Way High School District 210 boundaries will pay a fee of $175 per semester and $350 for two semesters. Students who reside outside of Lincoln-Way District 210 boundaries will pay a fee of $250 per semester.

Summer school is a concentrated program; therefore attendance at summer school is mandatory. One day of summer school is equivalent to five days during the school year; consequently a student will be dropped and no refund will be issued if he/she accumulates more than one day of absence per semester.

We want to give our Lincoln-Way students the best opportunities to improve their academic achievement. Therefore, we continue to offer the ability to take academic courses during the summer to help students get ahead of their required courses by taking an elective course or make-up a course, noted Superintendent Dr. R. Scott Tingley.
