Message from DriveSafe As your 8th graders prepare to move on to high school, many will also be starting on the path to becoming licensed drivers. Driver’s Education in Colorado can start as early as age 14½, and many of your students have already or will soon reach that age.
Colorado teen driving laws can be quite confusing, particularly for parents going through the process for the first time. As a courtesy, DriveSafe Driving Schools has created the attached flyer to explain the required steps and timelines for teens hoping to get their permits and licenses as quickly as possible.
Free Planet Fitness Membership for HS Students To support students’mental and physical health as the school year comes to a close, Planet Fitness is allowing high school students to work out for free in any Planet Fitness location May 16 - Aug. 31st. English Flyer & Spanish Flyer
