Does MGHS permit students to drive themselves to school?

Driving to school is a privilege, which we can revoke at any time. We encourage students for whom we are able to provide the opportunity to ride school transportation to do so. Students and their parents assume full responsibility for any transportation to and from school not officially provided by the school.

The following rules shall apply:

  • Students shall complete the Student Vehicle Form 5515 Fl (available in the office) and provide:
    • Valid driver’s license
    • Current insurance certificate
    • Current registration
  • Parking lot speed limit is 10 mph.
  • The student must obtain a permit from the school office.

In the event a student fails to comply with these rules, it will result in the loss of privileges and/or disciplinary action.
