Parking Permit

  • A displayed permit is required to park at WPHS.  Because there are more student drivers than there are student parking spaces, only juniors and seniors are eligible for parking permits.  To receive a parking permit the vehicle must be registered with the school. You will need a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance. The parking permit must be current for the school year and displayed in plain view on the backside of the inside rearview mirror.  Students who are issued permits are expected to abide by all rules. Parking in the following locations is prohibited:

    • Parking outside designated parking spaces (a designated space is a defined space between 2 white lines)

    • Staff Only areas 

    • Visitors Parking area 

    • Painted curbs (red, yellow, green)

    • Fire lanes 

    • Any area behind the school or theater 

    • Handicapped (unless you have a permit)

    • Traffic lanes

    • Bus loading zone

    Parking and/or parking lot infractions may result in suspension, fines, and/or loss of parking privilege. Fines for parking violations are listed on your registration form and range from $35 to $280.

    Seniors may purchase reserved parking spaces through Student Government. Please note that these spaces are only “reserved” for the first two periods of the day, and after this time become open to all vehicles. 

    Note: Having off-campus first period and/or an off-campus ROP course in the morning greatly reduces the opportunity to legally park on or near the campus.  If parking is a concern for you it is NOT advised to have off-campus first or second period.

    Any law enforcement officer is authorized to patrol and cite. Pedestrians have the right-of-way.  The campus maximum speed limit is 10 m.p.h.  Vehicles may not be driven through campus.  Students found operating their vehicles in an unsafe or reckless manner (including exceeding the 10 m.p.h. limit) may be fined and/or referred to an Assistant Principal and may lose their parking privileges on campus.
