K-5 Summer Academy

K-5 Summer Academy Bus Routes

K-5 Summer Academy will take place in each elementary school this summer with the exception of Cranbury. Cranbury students will attend Summer Academy at Wolfpit.

  • K-5 classroom teachers will keep families informed about each child’s progress.
  • Students who are in the well-below/substantially deficient range on End of Year (EOY) testing will be required to attend Summer Academy.
  • K-5 students who are required to attend Summer Academy will not be promoted to the next grade if they do not attend the summer classes, per State Legislation and Board of Education policy.
  • Students who perform in the below standard or even at/above benchmark may be invited to participate in the program, but they will not be retained if they choose not to attend.
  • English language learners and students who receive Special Education services may be required to participate, but will not be retained if they choose not to attend.
  • Wolfpit/Cranbury, Kendall, Jefferson, Naramake, Rowayton, and Tracey will begin at 8:10 and end at 12:50.
  • Fox Run, Brookside, Columbus, Marvin, and Silvermine will begin at 9:10 and end at 1:50.
  • Kendall and Jefferson will be piloting a unique program this summer called Springboard Collaborative. These schools will be able to invite a greater number of students (and families!) to participate. We look forward to serving about 200 students at each school this summer. Weekly family workshops will be offered to help parents support their children at home with reading.
  • Free breakfast and lunch will be served to all students in all buildings.
  • Transportation is free to and from Summer Academy.
  • For students who need a full day program, there will be busing to the “After the Summer Bell” camps offered at Kendall, Wolfpit, and Rowayton. Parents will need to pick up their child at the camps by 5:00. After school camps are not free. Rather, a sliding fee scale is used to determine the cost for each family based on free/reduced lunch status. Fees range from $70 - $120 per week.
