Student parking is limited to the back rows of the North Lot.  Students are not permitted to park on campus until they purchase a parking sticker.  Parking stickers are only available to students who do not currently owe school fees.  Parking stickers will be available in the Bookroom on the first day of school on a first come, first served basis starting at 7am.  Parking preference will be given to Seniors and Juniors due to limited student parking.  All parking south of Franklin Blvd is reserved for staff.  Student vehicles without permits or parked outside of the designated rows in the North Lot will be towed at the owner’s expense.
