Parking on Campus

Student Parking

Due to the limited number of parking spaces available to staff and students, only senior class students will be permitted to park a vehicle on school grounds. There will be no parking for juniors for any reason. Juniors who park on school property risk disciplinary consequences, as well as not being issued a parking spot during their senior year. Grade level status is determined by credits. In order to be a member of the senior class, students must have successfully completed 90 academic credits, without disciplinary obligations, and be eligible to graduate. Before any student applies for a parking permit, all obligations incurred from grades 9-11 must be cleared through Mrs. Wright, in the guidance office.

Parent/ Visitor Parking

All numbered parking spots in our parking lots are assigned to students and staff during school hours. If you are visiting the high school please park in a spot labeled visitor. These spots have been relocated to the three openings between the parking lot and the driveway in the front row closest to the building. You may also park in the driveway (left-side) if you need to come into the building for less than 15 minutes. Parking is not permitted along the yellow curb as it is a fire zone.

Traffic and Parking at Athletic Events

In order to ensure student and visitor safety, all vehicles are required to park in the front or rear school parking lots (by Joyce Kilmer) for all school athletic events and township recreational events. A new traffic gate has been installed at the entrance of our athletic facilities. This gate will be closed from 2:00 p.m. - midnight each day. Vehicles parked in the area around building #5 and the gymnasium must exit using the one way roadway behind the school when the gate is closed.

The service road behind the high school is a permanent one way road (24 hours per day/seven days per week -therefore, vehicles are not permitted to drive from the Joyce Kilmer roadway beyond the Wyckoff YMCA toward the tennis courts, football field, and Building #5 (athletic field house) at any time). Please note that the speed limit on this roadway is 5 mph.

We are continually monitoring compliance with the district’s traffic guidelines. Students not adhering to traffic guidelines will forfeit their parking privileges for a minimum of two (2) months. Non-student drivers will be subject to a NJ motor vehicle summons. Thank you in advance of your cooperation.
