Parking Permits
All students parking in the student parking lot MUST have a parking permit by September 30th. All parents of 10th-12th graders have been issued an application form in their Illuminate Parent Portal. If your student plans on using the parking lot, please complete and submit the form in the portal. If your student does not drive to school, you may ignore the portal form.
