What are the attendance policies for Summer School? 
A parent/guardian must call 503-356-3020 the day of the absence to inform the school of all student absences and tardies. During summer school, all absences are counted.  A student will be considered absent if they are more than 30 minutes tardy. Two tardies equals an absence.  If a student accumulates more than two absences the student will lose credit for the class. There is no fee refunded if a student is dropped due to attendance issues.

Is transportation provided?  
No district transportation will be provided. TriMet bus passes will be provided to students that live 1.5 miles or more from the school but they will need to make travel arrangements to get to school on the first day.  The closest TriMet bus stop to Westview HS is on NW 185th across from the school.

Code of Conduct

All students are expected to treat faculty, all staff, other students, and the physical property of BSD with respect.  Students who fail to do so will be asked to leave the program without a refund. The rules and regulations in the Student and Family Handbook, from the prior school year, are still in effect.  All rules and regulations will be reviewed the first day of each class.

Class Cancellations

Under-enrolled classes may be cancelled. Notification will be sent, if necessary.
