Parking for the 2021-2022 school year

Students desiring to park on campus will need to purchase a parking permit using our Revtrak System, pay all previous year's fees and fill out the online form attached at the bottom of this page.   The cost is $40.00 for the year and $20.00 for those purchased in the second semester.

 

Parking passes will be distributed during Warrior Time until September 8th.  After September 8th, if you purchase a parking pass you will need to come to the office to pick up your parking pass. After September 8th parking fees will be assessed if you are parking in the parking lot without a parking pass or parking in an undesignated spot.

 

Please be aware there is an addendum to this year's parking.

 

Please read the following addendum for the 2021-2022 school year:

This addendum has been created due to the construction at the school. The stadium parking lot is considered the “staging” area for construction vehicles, construction materials and could be dangerous. Because of this, there will be no parking in the stadium parking at any time during the school hours of 7:00-3:00 pm. Furthermore, if your car is found to be parked in the stadium parking lot, it will be towed immediately with all costs to the owner.

 

In addition, there will only be 363 parking spots available for the 2021-2022 school year. Seniors and Juniors will have until September 7th to purchase a parking pass at a first come first served basis. After this date it will open up to all students and will remain a first come first served basis.  Once all 363 parking spots have been distributed a waiting list will be created and as spots become available we will refer to this list in the order placed on a first come first served basis.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
