Classroom Options. Safeway offers in-person, distance learning (via Zoom) and Online (Self-paced) classes. Scroll through the Safeway In-Person classroom locations, as well as our school partners programs to find a convenient time and location.
Missed Classroom Lessons. Make-up lessons can be taken in-person or by distance learning via Zoom. Students can register for individual missed lessons by logging into their Safeway student account. Click the <Student Login> button in the top right corner of our home page and enter your last name, date of birth, home zip code and PIN. Go to the Classroom Lessons tab and click <Register for a Make-Up Lesson>. We are also happy to help over the phone by calling our office during business hours.
Once a make-up lesson is selected, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder email two days before the lesson. Your scheduled make-up lessons are listed on the Classroom Lessons tab. If distance learning is selected, click the <Zoom Login Information> button for the scheduled lesson for the meeting ID and password.
Please note, students must miss the lesson before they can register for a make-up lesson. Make-up lessons cannot be arranged in advance.
Blue Cards. Students attending in-person classes who have completed all 10 lessons and are up-to-date on payments will receive their Blue Card from the instructor after the last class.
For distance learning students, we mail the Blue Card to students. The Blue Cards are generally mailed out a day or two after the session ends. An email informs you the Blue Card has been issued and mailed.
