     Important information concerning Driver's Education

    Please read all information on this page before contacting me. All pertinent information is on this page.


    Interest Sign Ups are open for the June 2021 Driver's Education Class.

    Our next PHS Driver's Education class will begin June 7th and end on June 18th. Class will be face to face in the cafeteria and it will last from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm each day, Monday - Thursday. We will send you a confirmation email to let you know IF you will be in the class once sign ups are closed.  Any student that will be in this class will be expected to pay for the class by June 1st, 2021. Your birthday has to be on or before December 7th, 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 the class roster is definite. 


    Once the class is full, the sign up will be closed.
