10.  Students who receive their license during the year may apply for a permit one month after receiving their license.  Permits may be assgined if spaces are available.  (NO EXCEPTIONS!)


During the application process at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, all pending applicants will be given a temporary hang tag until the applications have been processed.  After September 13, only students with hang tags will be allowed to park on campus.  Students applying after September 13 will be allowed to drive once the application has been processed.  Failure to follow safe driving rules which includes the use of cell phones, as well as loud music may result in the loss of privilege to drive to school.  The speed limit on school grounds is 10 MPH.


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.
