Summer school set to in-person

As Diamond bar high school makes the slow transition back into in-person learning, plans to hold summer school in person this year have been announced.

Last summer, in-person classes were converted to a digital format With Students having lectures via video call from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. from Monday to Thursday each week.

This summer, three types of courses will be offered: remedial classes which will take place in person as well as Dedicated to Learning tuition courses and non tuition Mt. Sac courses which will both take place virtually. 

The on-campus remedial classes will take place Mondays through Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with a break from 10:00 to 10:30. Classes will run from June 7 to July 15 with the exception of a few days to celebrate the fourth of July. 

Instructional dean Julie Galindo will be running summer classes as the principal for summer school.

“Students will have to take a health screening upon entry and every class will have safety shields,” Galindo said via email. “Students will also be provided breakfast and lunch free of charge as a grab and go during the break.” 

Galindo said that these changes were made in order to ensure that the CDC health guidelines were met and so that all students and staff in attendance will be safe. Students and teachers will also be in the same room during the class and class sizes will be kept small.

“I have no concerns at this time and we are excited for students to return to campus so that we can support them in learning and earning credit toward their graduation,” Galindo said.
