Important Note about Poly Summer Program 2020:

As always, our priority is the health and safety of all of our students, faculty and staff. We have not yet received any guidance from the CDC or other government agencies as to what best policies to initiate for June of 2020. In the event, that we need to cancel Poly Summer 2020, we will issue full refunds to all of our summer families who have registered with us. As of now, we continue to keep registration open, and our cancellation policy remains the same: If you cancel before June 1, you get a full refund minus the registration fee.

We will provide our summer families with more information in the following weeks.

List of 3 items.

  • *Coronavirus: Travel Advisory*

    Poly Summer continues to monitor the emerging public health concerns of the coronavirus outbreak. Due to strict and evolving travel restrictions into the United States, if you will be traveling to the United States for PolySummer, please consider all travel advisories prior to enrolling in PolySummer.
  • PolySummer illness policy

    A child with a temperature greater than 100º F is considered contagious and should not attend PolySummer. A child will be allowed to return to PolySummer once he or she has been fever-free for 24 hours without the assistance of Tylenol or Advil/Motrin. Other important reminders:
    • A child with vomiting or diarrhea must be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to class.
    • A child who has a cold with excessive coughing, runny nose, and/or thickened nasal secretions is most likely still contagious. Children with these symptoms should be given the extra time to rest at home and recuperate.
    Prevention is always best, so parents are asked to remind their children of these three important health tips:
    • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
    • Cover your mouth and nose with tissues when sneezing and coughing.
    • Avoid sharing drinks, water bottles, silverware, and pencils.
    Please remember to report your child’s illness to the PolySummer Office at 626-396-6387. Thank you.
  • PolySummer allergy policy

    PolySummer recognizes the importance of developing a cooperative plan of care for students with allergies, as allergic reactions can occur rapidly. If a child has a potentially life-threatening allergy to bee stings or to foods (such as nuts), it is vital that the parents supply the Health Office, in advance, with the appropriate medications and instructions from the doctor.

    PolySummer is a “nut-aware” campus, not a “nut-free” campus. Because the school is unable to guarantee the safety of food items brought in for school activities, parents should talk to their children about making wise decisions regarding food choices. The sharing of food is not recommended.

    Cooking classes
    Parents of children with known food allergies are asked to please give careful consideration before enrolling their children in cooking classes. PolySummer cannot guarantee that recipes, facilities, and utensils will be free of gluten, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, and legumes. Please contact the Director of Health Services Marcy Kwitny, R.N. for further guidance.


  • Zero Waste at Poly Summer
  • Prescription Medication Form 2020
    This form is only for those summer students who will use prescription medication during the hours of Poly Summer. This includes allergic students who have been prescribed an epinephrine auto-injector (i.e. EpiPen, Auvi-Q) by their doctor. If you have questions regarding this form and medications, please contact Poly's Director of Health Services, Marcy Kwitny at
