Current Herbert School students can now request the use of the LHSC van, known as the "Herbert Hauler." There are two important steps in the process:

  1. Become an "approved" driver: This involves a successful background/DMV check and completion of an online driver safety course.
  2. Request the van: This involves getting approval of a request for the van, including dates, times, and purpose, and approval for any passengers.

This process will take time, so to ensure your request is processed in a timely manner, please make sure to complete the required forms several weeks in advance and submit to Fred O'Neill (, who can also answer any questions.
