    Grammar correction please.

    Is the following sentence correct?
    "I learned that once you leave *insert name of school here*, you may not go back."

    Thanks!

    Re: Grammar correction please.

    Hi
    I think it should be:
    "I know that once you leave *insert name of school here*, you may not be able to go back."

    "I know that once you drop out of *insert name of school here*, you may not be allowed to join again."

    "You may not go back" means "You will not be allowed back" rather than "it may be that you will not be allowed back".
