If your child is more than 5 minutes late to class they will not be allowed to participate in that day's lesson (even in the online format). This is a MN State standard that Safeway follows closely and can be found under the frequently asked questions on their website.The State of Minnesota requires that driver’s education distance learning be conducted in a face-to-face platform, which requires that students have a video camera and audio capabilities on their devices. Safeway has chosen a secure Zoom platform to conduct the class. We highly recommend testing out your technology before class begins! Safeway will be emailing the classroom handouts and 2020 MN Driver’s Manual in pdf format for printing. Students will be required to be in front of the camera and interactive for the full three-hour class.
