A recent communication was sent to some middle school families: You are receiving this message because your eighth-grade student (name specified in email) has been promoted to high school even though they failed two or more classes in middle school.

The session will take place for two weeks, July 6-9 and July 12-16 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day. Completion of this program will bridge the academic gap. Additionally, this program will ensure that incoming high-school student-athletes are eligible to play sports at the high-school level.
