Driver Education Program update regarding the 2020 Spring Driver Education program;

Dear Parents, (This was emailed to you today Sept 11, 2020)

LECTURE CLASSES

(Zoom Info, Start Date for Lectures and Car classes will be sent to you next week)
Car Classes will not begin until September 21st

You are receiving the schedule for the lecture classes for Drivers Education. 
The Zoom meeting information for the lectures will be provided to you by Wednesday of next week along with the start date for the lectures to begin as well as the car schedule.

We are changing the times of classes slightly, to accommodate the needs of students to get to school on days they are ‘in-person’, or give them a break between DE lecture and the rest of their distanced learning day should they be remote.

Lectures: 

*Please note that you should be attending the same lecture that you were assigned in the spring.
Mondays - 6:00am-7:00am Class (was 6:00am to 7:30am)
Wednesday - 6:00am to 7:00am (Class was 6:00am to 7:30am)
Friday - 3:30pm-4:30pm (Class was 2:45-4:15)
We will also be adding a Saturday Lecture class (an A Group and a B Group) for all students to expedite the completion of the course.  During your child’s (previously) regularly scheduled weekday lecture class the Friday Lecture students will be informed by the instructor which Saturday Lecture (A or B) they will be a part of.

**Due to the holiday on the 19th, Saturday lectures would not start until the 26th.

Saturday Lecture Class (group A) - 7:30am-8:30am - Includes all of the Monday 6:00am lecture class plus ½ of Fridays 3:30pm lecture class.
Saturday Lecture Class (group B) - 10:00am-11:00am - Includes all of the Wednesday 6:00am lecture class plus ½ of Fridays 3:30pm lecture class.

Dear Parents and  Students,

We hope that everyone is healthy and safe.

 

Be assured that the Spring semester of Driver Education that was started at the beginning of February and suspended in mid-March, will be completed in its entirety.  

 

Under NYSED guidelines, all students registered for the Spring semester of Driver Education may complete the Spring course during the Fall semester (September/January). When further information is available regarding the opening of schools, we will be able to give more definitive information on the startup of operations. When the time comes, students will be contacted directly regarding the changes in the program and their options.

 

Also be assured that the safety and health of the students is our priority. When the time comes, all necessary precautions will be taken to ensure a safe program.


Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely,
Matthew Calarco
