Second quarter was a busy one for FCCLA!

From the Driver's Ed Department

DRIVER EDUCATION RANGES


Thank you for not parking in the maroon parking stalls in the north parking lot between 2:30 & 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturdays between 7:30 a.m. & 2:00 p.m. We want to save you $120 in towing fees!  Park in a yellow stall and you will be golden! Thanks for your cooperation. Always assume there will be a range, we conduct about 75 sessions every quarter.


DRIVER EDUCATION students (& parents)


Do you have your Learner Permit? You need to obtain your permit from the Utah Driver License Division BEFORE* your classroom quarter begins (driverlicense.utah.gov). You must score a minimum of 80% on the Utah Driver Handbook examination to apply for a Utah learner permit. Coach Galley has Utah Driver Handbooks available free of charge in his classroom and he also offers the test free of charge in Room 2626 before school (Mondays & Tuesdays) at 7:00 a.m. You may also directly to the D.L.D. to take the test. Thanks!


*15 years and 3-5 months is our recommended time for getting a permit. This allows for adequate practice time and also prevents the need to renew the permit when it expires after 1 year. Many students turn 16 before they have completed the class and all driving phases. Getting your permit on your 15th birthday usually leads to spending another $15 at the Driver License Division. Save yourself the hassle.

ZERO FATALITIES Parent Nights


Our popular Dr. Ed. Parent Nights are scheduled in the auditorium each semester for a parent(s)/guardian(s) of current Dr. Ed. students. We encourage you to plan ahead and save the date. Please note that the general public, other family members, or friends are invited to join you in attending this free, powerful presentation. The Zero Fatalities Parent Night is informative and can be life-saving and life-changing, and it is a great family night out!
