FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS SUMMER ADVENTURE STILL RUNNING IN 2020?
We are currently assessing whether we can run our regular in-person program or perhaps an online program for 2020. If we run a modified program, or if we cancel altogether, currently enrolled families will be offered the option of full refunds with no fees.
If you want to cancel before the decision is made about whether or not we can run, we regret that we still need to charge the $50 cancellation fee. We encourage families to sit tight while we assess the situation and we expect to make a decision in the first full week of May.
WHAT ARE THE DATES FOR 2020?
Summer Adventure will run from June 15 through July 17, 2020. We will be closed on Friday, July 3rd in observance of Independence Day.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED IN 2020?
Our Elementary School Program will take place at Will Rogers Elementary School (2401 14th Street), while our Middle School Program will be at John Adams Middle School campus (2425 16th Street).
HOW MUCH DOES THE PROGRAM COST?
A full price list is available in the pricing section of the website.
Please note we no longer charge separate materials fees or credit card processing fees. Your price is all-inclusive.
WHAT DO I NEED TO HAVE TO REGISTER?
You will need a computer or smartphone to register. A computer with Internet access running the most recent version of Chrome or Firefox is preferred, but IE 11 and Safari are also supported. Smartphones can be used, but there’s a lot of text on the screens so a computer is much more comfortable. If you don’t have computer access, come see us at the District Office (1651 16th Street) and we can help.
To see a list of the information you will need to have to register, review this "What You Need To Register" document.
You may also find our Elementary Enrollment Worksheet or Middle School Enrollment Worksheet helpful in making your course selections. Links will be available closer to the registration date.

DO I USE MY CHILD'S CURRENT GRADE LEVEL, OR THEIR GRADE LEVEL FOR NEXT YEAR?
When registering you'll be asked to indicate your child's grade level, and that will determine the classes for which your child can enroll. When entering your grade level, select the grade your child will be in beginning in August 2020; That is, you use their grade level for the next school year.
IS THIS PROGRAM ONLY FOR SMMUSD KIDS?
Summer Adventure is not a part of SMMUSD, though we work in close partnership with the District. Summer Adventure is open to non-SMMUSD students as well. However, only SMMUSD students are eligible for scholarships.
DO YOU HAVE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?
Yes! We have discounted rates for SMMUSD students only who are enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program. Students on the free lunch program pay a discounted rate of $95 elementary/$99 middle school for a full, five-week program. Students on the reduced-fee lunch program pay $225 elementary/$229 middle school for the full, five-week program. Proof of enrollment in the lunch program is required; you must submit a copy of your letter to receive a scholarship.
CAN STUDENTS NOT ON THE FEDERAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS?
SMMUSD students who are not on the Federal School Lunch Program can apply for a scholarship during registration. You will need to submit and application, along with financial information. Notification should take place in about a week. A deposit of $95 for elementary or $99 for middle school is required when you apply and will be applied to your tuition. If you do not receive a scholarship, you may elect to pay the full tuition or withdraw from the program and have your deposit refunded.
SHOULD I WAIT TO REGISTER UNTIL I'M INFORMED ABOUT MY SCHOLARSHIP?
No, do not wait to register. Classes fill quickly so register your child ASAP. If you do not receive a scholarship you may elect to withdraw with no penalty.
If your child is already enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program, you are guaranteed a scholarship once proof of enrollment is submitted.

We can help with that, but you must first complete this medication form and have it signed by a physician. We regret that we do not have access to your child's school records and cannot use the school district's form.
