Dear Parents/Guardians

Welcome to Syosset Summer School 2020. This year’s summer program will be virtual

exciting learning opportunities that will provide the best possible virtual experience.
Please take a few moments to go through the course listings below to decide which
classes would best serve your child. You will find a broad range of remediation and
enrichment classes.

All summer school classes will be virtual and be a combination of both Google
Classrooms and secure Google Meet platforms. Classes are broken down into two thirty
minute sessions. A break-down of courses and times that are offered are listed below.
Students who enroll in a course scheduled for Period 1 will return to that same course in
Period 3. Students who enroll in a course scheduled for Period 2 will return to that same
course in Period 4. Students who enroll in a course in Period 5 will also meet in Period

School Lunch Break will be assigned a session break so that students may attend a
course for virtual learning.
