 In order to park your car in the parking lot, you need to display a valid parking pass. The first two rows are for Staff Parking Only.  At this point, all off the parking passes have been sold for the year. So if you do not have a valid parking pass, you should not be parking in the lot. 

 Per the student handbook:

Vehicles must be parked properly in designated parking spaces. Students will be issued stickers on a priority basis considering year of graduation and personal need. Students parking in non-designated “student” parking areas or unauthorized areas are subject to disciplinary action including detention, suspension of driving privilege, and/or suspension from school. Additionally, parking in a non-designated area may result in the vehicle being towed. Cars without visible parking permits are subject to towing without warning. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
