    Information for Student Drivers

    Attention Students who drive to school:  You must have a parking tag to drive to school and park in the student lots.  At this time, the rear gravel parking lot is not open to student parking.  If you do not have a regular parking tag, temporary tags are available for the student who plans to drive to school occasionally ( 1 day per week or 3 to 4 days per month).  The temporary tags must be secured in the office prior to the day that you drive to school.  Temporary tags are limited and are only good for the day designated on the tag.  For additional information regarding traffic patterns, parking, first day schedule, etc. please click here.
