Students who wish to park in the Student Parking Lot must apply for a parking permit. Vehicles parked in the Student Parking Lot without a parking permit may be ticketed and towed at owner’s expense. Students are not allowed to park in the upper campus, including the circle area. Parking in the Little League Lot also requires a Permit.

The application for a parking permit can be found in the Parent Portal under Forms, for all Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.  All vehicle information, CDL and student and parent signatures/acknowledgement are required on the application. If the application form is not in the Parent Portal, please call the front office to have it sent.  Once the form is approved, you may pick up the permit from the Finance Office during Brunch or Lunch.  The permit can be used for all vehicles listed in your application form.
