MARCH 31, 2020 MESSAGE:
Due to the closure of schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year both the April and June Driver Educution classes are cancelled. I will be processing a refund for all students registered for these classes. We have also cancelled the "Behind The Wheel" as well and will not be driving any students who already completed the classroom instruction and may have done some hours of the BTW. We don't want any exposure of any kind having your student and the instructor in a car! I will be sending a partial refund to these parents as well. Please expect a letter to arrive at the address listed on the registration form with details.
The refund will take several weeks to process, please be patient and we are very sorry to have to cancel all aspects of the Driver Education Program for the remainder of this school year and into the summer time. We hope to have this opportunity in place next school year 2020-2021.
THANK YOU, CHRISTINE EVERETT
COORDINATOR, DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM.
