Lyons High School will offer Driver’s Education this summer if the state and local restrictions allow it. Of course, that is subject to change based on the COVID-19 trends in the state.
On Tuesday, May 26th, Driver’s Education students will be required to come to the school to fill out the necessary forms, create a driving schedule, receive textbooks, review worksheets and testing procedures, and have their eye exam. Students must pay their $125.00 Driver’s Education fee on or before May 26th.
Any Student who is 14 years old by June 1 and has completed the 8th grade at Lyons Middle School or is enrolled at Lyons High School will be eligible to enroll in Driver’s Education. Driver’s Education consists of the classroom component and the driving component. Students are required to pass 15 separate written exams at Lyons High School between June 1st and June 13th, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until noon and on Saturday, June 13th, if needed. The state allows a student to take a maximum of three tests per day. Students must pass all 15 exams to be allowed to continue the driving section. If the COVID restrictions permit, driving sessions will be scheduled from July 1st through mid-August. Driver’s Education students should not schedule any trips during this time.
An unexcused absence will result in your student being dropped from the class roster with no refund of your fee. Kansas law requires that students must have an instruction permit for 12 months and show that they have driven 25 hours with a licensed adult before they can get a restricted license. Students will be required to wear a mask when they are in the Driver’s Education car! After each student has driven, they will wipe down any part of the car that they touched including the steering wheel, door handles, seat belts, and mirrors. Passengers will also wipe down surfaces they have touched before leaving each day.
