Visitor Parking is located in the row closest to the drop off area and is marked as visitor spots. Please do not park in faculty parking or in the spots by the stadium. Handicapped spots are marked and are located within the first part of the faculty parking area. You must either have a handicapped license plate or a valid handicapped permit hanging so our resource officers can see, otherwise you will be ticketed. You may park in the Bus Depot area as long as your vehicle is removed by 2pm so the buses have clear area to line up.

Arrival/Dismissal Procedures:

Buses enter and leave on Northside Drive, car riders enter on Northside Drive, drop off by the Main Lobby of the school and exit back onto Holt Road, and students with parking permits enter and exit on Northside Drive during morning arrival and during their dismissal and the student parking lot is in the rear behind the stadium.

When waiting for a student, do not park in the crosswalk and please turn off your vehicle. If you are coming in to pick up a student during the school day, please park in a visitor spot and enter the building. Please do not park in the fire lanes.

Parking for Performing Arts Center (PAC):

Parking for our Performing Arts Center (PAC) is in our back parking lot behind the stadium. You should enter the Southside Drive entrance, near our Arena, and go all the way to the back parking lot. You may drop off persons in front of the PAC and then continue on to the parking lot. Handicapped parking is available in the Lot just prior to the PAC.
