Summer

General Information & Policies

Program Information and Communication: Registered families will be emailed a detailed enrollment packet at least one week prior to the start of your selected summer program with details about pick up, drop off, what to bring/wear, and more. Camp Roadrunner, Counselor-in-Training (C.IT.), and Camp Coyote (Jr. C.I.T.) programs will receive weekly emails on Wednesdays detailing upcoming weekly events.
 
Refunds: We realize that summer plans can change. However, the school has certain fixed costs that do not change if a student withdraws from a class or program. To that end, the school has adopted the following refund policy. If a child withdraws from a class or program at least 2 business days prior to the start of that class or program, he or she will be eligible for a full refund of 70% of the program cost. The $35 Registration Fee per participant is non-refundable as it will be used to offset any processing costs. Families must notify the Summer Programs Office of the withdrawal in writing by e-mailing summerprograms@viewpoint.org. No refunds will be given for withdrawals once a class or program has started. If a class or program is canceled, a full refund will be issued.
 
Registration: All registration for Viewpoint’s Summer Programs is to be completed online. Each student/camper is required to pay a one-time $35 non-refundable Registration Fee for Summer 2018.
 
Payments: All balances must be paid in full before the first day of the class or program for which a student is registered.  Payment deadline for all summer camps, courses, and programs is June 1, 2018.
 
Fees: There is a $25 fee on all returned checks or returned charge card payment requests. If your debit or credit card expires prior to June 1, 2018, or you wish your post-dated payments to be debited from an alternative or bank account, it is your responsibility to update your card or bank account details with the Summer Programs Office.

Field Trip Release Forms: A signed field trip waiver form must be completed online for all students who participate in any or all of the field trips. Students must be pre-registered for each field trip in order to be eligible to participate.  A waiver form does not suffice as registered.
 
Food Service: The School’s food service vendor, Sage Dining Services, will provide lunch at a reasonable cost to all Summer Program participants. Viewpoint students will receive Patriot Cards (the School’s cash-free option for paying for lunch). Parents will need to fund their child’s Patriot Card before camp begins. All other students may pre-purchase lunches. Please note that students entering grades 6 through 12 can use cash for their purchases. To fund your Patriot Card or pre-purchase, please contact Marianne Zimmer at marianne.zimmer@viewpoint.org or call 818-591-6159. Students may also bring their lunch.
 
Medical Information: It is required that your child(ren)’s medical information is completed online upon submitting your registration. If your child will need to have any prescription medications administered at camp, please complete the “Medication” section online and submit it to the Viewpoint School Summer Nursing Office. *Please note: Any child who is not a currently enrolled Viewpoint student or a new entering student, must have a copy of their Immunization Records on file with the Summer Programs Office Nurse prior to the child's first day of camp. You have the option to upload immunization records online during registration.
 
Attendance: For Upper School Academic Credit, a student may not miss more than two meetings of a class (in a full-year, two semester class). A student may not miss more than one class meeting for a half-year, one semester class. Students are responsible for completing all work that assigned during their absence. Academic credit will not be awarded if a student misses more than two classes. Two tardies in the same class count as an absence.

Behavior: The School assumes that students are enrolled in the Summer Programs for a purpose, and that they will conduct themselves accordingly. Students should behave honorably and take responsibility for their actions. While there is no specific dress code during the summer, students should expect to wear clothing that is in good taste and appropriate. The School will take exception to very unusually colored or styled hair. The School takes very seriously the concepts of respect for others and personal integrity. Rude, insulting, or demeaning behavior will in no way be tolerated. Students who fail to adhere to these rules or to conduct themselves within the spirit of the Summer Program will be subject to expulsion from the Program without refund of tuition.

Books: Given the accelerated nature of summer school, all books and other necessary class materials will be purchased on behalf of students prior to the start of classes and distributed on the first day of class. If a course requires a textbook, families will be invoiced for the cost of the book and payment will be required prior to the start of the class.

Holidays: The School and all of its programs will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in observance of Independence Day.
