Community Education Department

Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education offers teen driver’s education in cooperation with Safeway Driving School. Safeway Driving School has been graduating teen drivers in the Twin Cities area for over 40 years and their instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.   

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.  Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons emphasize defensive driving techniques tailored for the inexperienced teen driver while targeting to influence the invincible teen attitude.   

Full Course Fee of $370 is broken into three payments: 

$220 due at registration time, $150 ($75 on the first lesson and $75 on the second lesson); checks made payable to Safeway Driving School or call Safeway before behind-the-wheel to pay by credit card   

The next class sessions are: 

  • October 19-November 4 (No Class on Nov 3) 
  • November 11-24 
  • November 30-December 16 (No Class on Dec 7)

Yearbook Update

Spring Lake Park High School has once again designated David Bank Studios as our exclusive photographer for the 2020-2021 yearbook. The decision to continue our relationship with David Bank Studios was made after careful consideration of their services, pricing and great reputation with our school and several other local high schools.

While you may choose a different photographer for your senior portrait prints, we do recommend David Bank Studios. We have been pleased with the quality and multiple options they have available. However, if you elect to use another photographer, you MUST still have a senior yearbook photo taken with David Bank Studios, in order to have your picture included in the yearbook.

Here are your options for getting your yearbook photo taken:

Option 1 - Have your yearbook photo taken at school in the fall. David Bank Studios will be coming out to our school later on to take free yearbook photos. They will take 2-3 different poses and you will have the option to select which of those photos you would like in the yearbook.

Option 2- Go to the David Banks Studio website to schedule a session that best fits your needs.  All sessions include a photo of your choice that will be submitted over to the yearbook staff. Sessions at the studio start at $35.
