Q: I need to drive a different vehicle for just a few days while my car is in the shop. What should I do?
A: Please obtain a free temporary permit from the Front Office for the Assistant Principal's Office. You will hang this permit from your rearview mirror and will still need to park in a student parking lot.
Q: I’m running late or I had to leave school during the day for an appointment. May I park in the visitor lot?
A: No, all students must park in a student parking lot. Students parked in the visitor or staff parking lots will be issued a parking violation.
Q: I sprained my ankle, can I park in a handicap parking space?
A: If your doctor issued you a handicap parking permit, you may display the permit on your rearview mirror and park in a handicap parking space anywhere on campus. If you do not have a handicap parking permit, it is illegal for you to park in a handicap parking space or the striped lines next to a handicap parking space. Handicap parking permits can only be issued by your doctor.
Q: May I eat my lunch in my car?
A: No, students may not be in the parking lot or their vehicles during the school day.
Q: May I leave campus during lunch?
A: Only seniors may leave campus during lunch.
Q: I don’t receive my driver’s license until later in the school year. Can I still purchase a permit? Will it be prorated?
A: Yes, we issue parking permits all throughout the school year. Parking permits will be issued at a cost of $60 per school year. New drivers’ purchasing permits after January 1st are $30.
Q: I have other questions about student parking. Who do I contact?
