Long Beach High School

Driver's Education Program

May 15, 2020

To all students registered in the 2020 Spring Driver Education program and their parents:

We hope that everyone is healthy and safe during these trying times. I am writing to update you on the status of the course. As a result of the pandemic and the discontinuation of Driver’s Education instruction, we will be reimbursing all students for the portion of the driver's education course that you were not able to complete. We will also give any student that has successfully completed 5 hours of lecture class an opportunity to receive a MV 278.8 certificate, this certificate will allow you to sign up for your road test. We have ordered the MV 278.8 certificates from the State and will notify all students when and where these certificates can be picked up. Please note that any student that requests this certificate will need to sign in person and have your Learner’s Permit with you to receive the MV 278.8 certificate.

Stay healthy,

Jeffrey Myers
