  • Attention all students:  Please be aware of where you are parking. Do not park in front of any mailboxes, fire hydrants or too close to driveways. Please remember you cannot park within 12 feet of an intersection or crosswalk or 15 feet of a fire hydrant. Also, with this amount of snow, it may be hard to find a parking spot that is close to the curb but this does not allow you to park in the middle of the road. Blocking the traffic is very dangerous and should be avoided at all times.
