If your child will be turning 15 over the summer and will need to get his/her enrollment certificate to get his/her driver’s permit, please email our PPO clerk, Heather Simmons at email@example.com. Please include the student’s name and DOB. Mrs. Simmons will distribute the certificates to the student during the last week of school.
