JUNE SESSION PROCEDURES
June Sessions for Summer in the Grove start Monday, June 17! Bring students to the Barton Schoolhouse in Heritage Park (1775 Orange Street, Redlands – please use the link for navigation, as this address is easily confused with other similar Orange “streets” in the area). Doors will open 30 minutes prior to start times in the morning or afternoon for check in, collection of paperwork, introductions, and a quick review of expectations before students proceed to classes.
Drop-off and Pick-up: Throughout the duration of their courses in June, students will be dropped off and picked up from the Barton Schoolhouse in Heritage Park. A Summer in the Grove staff member will be present 15 minutes before the start of courses and 15 minutes after the end of courses. Students that come earlier or stay later may be asked to leave the program or pay extra fees for supervision costs. Should you need to pick up early, are going to be late or absent, please call or text to (909) 255-0660, so that we can make necessary arrangements and inform teachers.
Daily Necessities: For each day of Summer in the Grove, students should bring a water bottle, snack, a bag to carry belongings, and come prepared for sun for at least short periods of time (that means sunscreen). They should also dress comfortably with closed toed shoes, as many of the classes will be held on the Grove School Farm Campus.
Lunch: Full day students need to bring a sack lunch (there is no food provided by Summer in the Grove). A microwave is available on site. Half day students are not permitted be on campus for lunch. Half day students who show up for lunch may be asked to leave the program or to pay for the full day program to help cover supervision costs.
Other Materials: Safety gear for Metal Shop and other materials will be provided. Students should feel free to bring a guitar for Guitar and Music Recording, although there will be guitars available to borrow. We can store them during the PM courses, as necessary.
Self-Administered Medication Waiver: If your student requires an inhaler or Epi-Pen, please be sure to bring your completed Self-Administered Medication Waiver.
Metal Shop: If you are registered to take Metal Shop, be sure to bring the signed waiver. We will have some extra copies on hand that first day, just in case. If a student does not have a waiver, they may not participate until a signed copy is obtained by Summer in the Grove. Students in that course should also wear pants and be prepared to spend most of their class day in the sun, so it is especially helpful if they bring extra sunscreen and a hat.
Plan to Attend Grove-a-Ganza!: On the last day of Session 1, June 28) we will have a presentation of work from 3:30-4:30pm. Please mark your calendar and join us to see how your students have used their time!
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. We can’t wait to learn with you!
