WTHS to Host Highway Safety Program “Share the Keys” on February 24th
Washington Township High School will host “Share the Keys,” a parent/teen safe driving orientation, on Monday, February 24, 2020, at 6;30 p.m. in the WTHS Play House (11/12 auditorium). The research-based, data-driven program was developed in partnership with the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety and Kean University and is designed to reduce teen driver crash risks by increasing parental involvement. The program, which is intended ideally for parents and their teens during the pre-permit or permit stage of licensure, is free and will be delivered primarily by WTHS School Resource Officers Tom DiTullio and Tony Leone.
The Share the Keys program helps to foster communication between parents and teens and ensures that all parties fully understand the risks and responsibilities associated with driving and are equipped with the tools needed to build safe driving skills for life, including:
Understanding the graduated driver license
Being a good role model
Effectively enforcing the graduated driver license at home
Increasing practice driving hours
Controlling the keys
Please note that Washington Township High School juniors, who are current Renaissance Gold Card holders and have secured their driver’s license, will be permitted to purchase a parking permit once they have attended the “Share the Keys” event. Parking permits for Renaissance Gold Card holders will be available for purchase on a first come, first served basis.
All WTHS juniors who are not Renaissance Gold Card holders will be entered into a lottery for a parking spot only if they have attended a “Share the Keys” event and have secured their driver’s license.
