CENTRAL MONTCO TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL
DRIVER’S EDUCATION GUIDELINES FOR REOPENING PLAN
Because of the highly unusual set of circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic Central Montco Technical High School made the following modification to the behind the wheel driving lesson procedures.
The instructor will schedule the behind-the-wheel training time with students. There will be no in class theory classes taught at this time.
Students should wait outside. Instructors will meet their students in the parking lot in front of the building. Students must have their driving permit with them for all lessons.
Students, parents and instructors waiting near the building or door must wear a mask.
Prior to each driving lesson or test, students will be required to complete and sign-off on a Questionnaire and have their temperature taken electronically by their instructor. (As well as the instructor taking his own temperature) To save time, students should print and complete a copy of the attached questionnaire and return to their instructor prior to each lesson.
If a student is not feeling well or has a temperature, the instructor will reschedule their appointment to a later date; after the student is symptom-free for fourteen days.
Mandatory use of face coverings/masks by all students and instructors is required. Students should bring their own facemask. Lessons will not be conducted if a student is not wearing a proper face covering.
Vehicles are sanitized between students.
There will be no access to the school building. Parents and visitors are not permitted in the building during this time.
This plan is subject to changes and modifications as required by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and/or the Center for Disease Control.
