PORTALES – Summer classes for Portales secondary students are scheduled for June, while elementary students will have summer school in July, according to Superintendent Johnnie Cain.

Secondary students, grades 7 to 12, who need or desire summer classes will begin summer classes on June 6. Those classes will run four days a week through June 30, Cain said. Summer classes for elementary students will begin July 11 and run for four weeks.

Summer classes are mostly for “catching up” for secondary and elementary students, Cain said, but at the elementary level some classes are designed for enrichment beyond regular school curriculum rather than getting up to speed.

Efforts to make up for learning lost because of isolation and virtual classes during the most virulent periods of the COVID-19 pandemic continue, Cain said.

During the school year, he said, the district has continued after school programs to get students caught up to grade level, and summer classes are a continuation of that effort.

Students who have fallen behind in key subjects “need to be there” for summer school, Cain said, “but we won’t turn any away” who think they can benefit from summer instruction.
