Handicapped Parking

Parking spaces designated for Handicapped Parking are to be used by those vehicles that have handicapped plates and/or a handicapped tag displayed in their car.  Parking in designated handicapped spots without the proper documentation is against the law and is subject to a summons and fine by law enforcement.  

Under no circumstances should the handicapped spaces be used for vehicles that do not have the proper documentation.  

This includes if you are dropping your child off late to school.  When dropping your child off for school late, you must park in the parking lot and walk your child to the main entrance of the school to be signed in by the receptionist.

I want to avoid this becoming a problem for students that are dropped off who require access to handicapped parking spots.  

We ask for your cooperation in abiding by the rules.  If this becomes a problem, the school reserves the right to contact law enforcement to resolve the issue.

Warm regards,

Mrs. Jean-Denis
