All Juniors and Seniors who wish to drive to school must follow the Student Driving & Parking Policy, register their vehicles with the school, and receive a parking tag. Juniors and Seniors are allowed to drive to school as a matter of privilege, not of right.  A student who is in violation of the driving policy may lose his/her parking privileges and have his/her vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.
