WARREN, NJ - The application deadline has been announced for senior parking at Watchung Hills Regional High School for the 2013-2014 schoolyear.
Parking is a senior privilege and is by permit only. All vehicles must be registered with the Security Department by completing the appropriate application.
To be eligible for senior parking, the applicant must thoroughly complete and submit the parking application and have:
*No school financial obligations (book fines, equipment return issues, etc.)
*Fewer than 28 disciplinary points in their junior year
*Not been suspended two or more times
*Fewer than 15 tardies to school in their junior year
*Not been disciplined for leaving campus without permission
*Not been truant from school as defined in the Student Handbook
A driver’slicense is not required to apply for a parking permit. If you are getting your license later in the year a copy of the license is required when you pick up the permit. All permits must be paid for when distributed in September 2013, even those being picked up later in the year.
Parking stickers must be affixed to the driver’s door window, inside upper corner. Students may not share parking stickers. Doing so is just cause for immediate revocation of campus driving/parking privileges. Any underclassman who is found to be using a senior’s parking permit will automatically forfeit his/her own senior parking privilege. Failure to display a parking sticker will result in a warning for the first offense and summonses for subsequent offenses.
Parking applications will be available at the senior assembly on Thursday, Sept. 12 and at the Security Office and Room 73A thereafter.
The application deadline is Friday, Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. No exceptions. Applications will be processed for approval on a daily basis at the end of each day ending on Sept. 20.
Students will receive notification on Monday, Sept. 23 during time slot one that they have been granted a parking permit and parking stickers will be sold after school on Tuesday, Sept. 24 and Wednesday, Sept. 25. Once applications are approved for the available parking capacity (350), applications that follow will be kept in the order they were received and considered in that order if space becomes available.
Seniors may park in any white-lined area without a permit until the stickers have been distributed. Thereafter, parking is by permit only.
Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. When the paved parking lots are full, the gravel lot can be used by seniors with a permit. Spaces are not assigned. A decal does not guarantee a space on pavement.
Students that received a letter of ineligibility may not apply and any application that is submitted will not be processed.
There are parking spaces in the main lots for the handicapped. Those spaces are regulated by NJ Title 39Motor Vehicle Laws.
Students may not park in the visitors’ parking areas.
The Warren Township Police Department will issue a parking summons to a car parked in the wrong area or to a car not displaying a valid parking permit. A Warren Township Municipal Court appearance may be required upon the first offense.
Any willful violation of the campus driving /parking contract is just cause for immediate revocation of the student’s driving/parking privileges for the remainder of the school year.
Students who accumulate 15 tardies (excused or unexcused during the first time slot) and/or 28 points, September through June (inclusive), or receive two or more suspensions will have their campus driving/parking privileges revoked immediately.
Any student, regardless of grade designation, who leaves campus without permission, forfeits his/her senior parking privilege.
Students who have been advised that their parking privileges have been revoked will not receive any warning when found to be parked illegally on campus. A summons will be issued.
NOTE: The loss of parking privileges means that the registered car cannot be driven to school and parked on the main campus by anyone. The only parking available to those students without a permit, regardless of grade level, is on Mountain Avenue, in the lot adjacent to the athletic fields.
