Summer school information for current high school students in Lincoln

With the current health directives put into place and recent recommendations from the Nebraska Department of Education, Lincoln Public Schools announced the following changes to summer school for high school students currently in grades 9-12.

All summer school classes will be done remotely and synchronously from June 3 through July 16. This means that students who register for a summer school course will be required to log-on to their Chromebook and meet with their teacher electronically during their scheduled class time, Monday through Friday. Classes will be from 8-9:50 a.m. and 9:55-11:45 a.m. Teachers will be using Zoom and Google Classroom, along with other electronic tools, to deliver instruction each day during the class period. Classes will not be physically meeting during summer school.

Letter grades will be given and the same summer school attendance policies will be in place. Once a student has missed five days total or three days in a row, for any reason, they will no longer have the opportunity to earn credit in that class. Being late by more than 30 minutes is considered being absent from the class and will be counted as one of the absences.

This year, LPS will waive all tuition fees for any high school student (public or private), and classes are available to any student in grades 9-12 that currently resides within the LPS boundary.

Students interested in registering for summer school classes need to do the following:

  • Go to the summer school website as soon as possible and fill out a form to indicate their interest in registering for summer school classes.
  • Staff will then contact the student to give them instructions on how and when to register for available classes based on their grade level.
  • More information can be found on the summer school website:

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your school counselor.
