• Driver Education Announcements

    6/15/20 - There will be NO summer Driver Ed programs this year. Please check back in mid-August, after the state & district have made a determination about what the fall school year will look like, for updates on whether we will be able to run a fall Driver Ed program.

    3/12/20 - The New York State Department of Education and New York State Department of Health issued school guidance on March 9, 2020. Additionally, the County Executive, Marcus Molinaro, provided districts with additional information and guidance on March 12, 2020.    

    In support of efforts towards community containment of the COVID-19 virus, and based on the recommendation of the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health, effective Friday, March 13, 2020, we are cancelling or postponing all Adult and Continuing Education programs which are held in any of the WCSD Schools, except for approved Before and After School Child Care, until further notice.  

    Until further notice, the Wappingers Driver Ed program will be indefinitely postponed. This includes both lecture and in-car driving.

    Once the district makes a determination that we can run after school programs again, we will start the program back up again and reassess the situation at that time.
