2018-2019 Safe Driving Presentations

Mon, 08/06/2018 - 12:22pm

Permission for students to drive and park vehicles on school system property is a privilege, not a right. In order to be granted this privilege, students must obtain a student parking permit each school year, which requires students and parents/guardians to annually attend a driver safety session and to pay a $15 fee for the parking permit. Students must also comply with all school rules related to driving and parking on school property in order to retain this privilege. Session dates are confirmed early in the school year and may be adjusted as necessary. Students do not need to attend a session at their home school. Please confirm all dates and times with the host school prior to attending.
