NO LONGER TAKING STUDENTS FOR NOVEMBER CLASS.
HOPEFULLY WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER CLASS IN FEBRUARY 2021.
Classes will begin November 9th and end on December 7th. We will have two classes: 3:30 to 5:30 or 5:45-7:45 each day. We will send you a confirmation email with a parent meeting link to let you know if you will be in one of the classes. You may choose a time slot for your class, but it is not guaranteed that you will be assigned to that time slot. I will do my best to accommodate but it is not a guarantee. Any student that will be in this class will be expected to pay for the class by November 9th. Your birthday has to be on or before May 9, 2006 and you must be in high school. The cost of Driver's Education is $90, unless you apply for a reduced fee waiver and then the cost will be $57.50. Reduced waiver forms are for any student that receives free/reduced meals at school. Fees will not be collected until class roster is definite.
Important dates to know for the upcoming classes. These are required dates and times:
November 5th - Parent/Student Meeting at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Cameras are required to be on at all times and ONE parent and the student has to be visible at all times. If parent/student are not seen the entire time then you will not be in the class. This is a mandatory meeting.
November 9th - payment due for the class
November 18th - Eye exams at PHS starting at 3:30
I will go into more detail about this later
December 4th - Alive@25 class (4 hour class) from
3:30-7:30 for both classes at the same time
If you are not in attendance for the entire class then
you will not get credit
Class dates - We have holidays during the November classes and that
has really effected the schedule. Therefore, I want to
post the dates of the classes.
Nov. 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th
Nov. 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th
Nov. 23rd, 24th
Nov. 30, 1, 2, 3, 4
If you are going on vacation or will not be able to attend class during these dates then I would encourage you to take a different class at another time. You can only miss one day of class and will have a make up assignment required. If you miss more than one day of class then you are removed from the class.
DRIVER'S EDUCATION IS CONSIDERED AN AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITY. IF ALL AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED, THIS INCLUDES DRIVER EDUCATION.
