 Driving to School
 Driving in personal vehicles to and from school is limited to special circumstances and is by permit only. The school district assumes no responsibility for student safety or for personal property damages. Driving privileges are for students who possess a valid Pennsylvania driver’s license, not a PA Learners’ Permit and who agree to the student driving regulations. The number of driving permits issued each school year will not exceed the number of available parking spaces. Find detailed information concerning student driving, student riders and loss of driving/riding privileges below. Refer to​ ​Board Policy 223​ ​for more information.
Parking Passes
Seasonal passes can be purchased for a fee of $25.00. Students will also have the opportunity at the beginning of the year to purchase year long passes for $75.00 on a first come first serve basis. Only 150 year-long passes will be made available; all other passes will be purchased on a seasonal basis. Emergency passes can be purchased for $2.00/day. The following guidelines are in place for the safety, responsibility, and efficiency of student parking.
1. Parking pass seasons:
a. Fall season runs from the first day of school to the end of November.
b. Winter season runs from the beginning of December to the end of February.
c. Spring season runs from the beginning of March to the last day of school.
2. Emergency passes are to be used on an intermittent basis for appointments that occur during the school day. These passes are not intended to be used in place of a seasonal pass. The overuse of emergency parking passes will be brought to the attention of a principal.
3. If a student who is issued a pass is tardy 6 times, his/her pass may be revoked for the remainder of that season. Students will only be eligible to reapply for a new parking pass the next season at the discretion of the principal. Students who surpass 9 tardies for the year may lose their parking privileges for the remainder of the year. In addition, students who have accumulated 6 or more unexcused absences may also lose their parking privileges for the remainder of the year.
4. Students who are required to drive for medical reasons or that may need a handicapped parking space must secure a pass from the attendance secretary. A handicapped parking pass will be issued. These students will use the school lot and park in the space assigned by the attendance secretary.
5. A security guard will check passes in the student lots each morning. Only students with valid parking passes are permitted to enter the lots. Students who do not have a valid parking pass will be subject to disciplinary action.
6. Students who park on school property without permission will be subject to progressive disciplinary action, can have emergency parking fees attached to their diploma, or in extreme circumstances, could have their vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.
