Student Parking

ELIGIBLE STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 11th & 12th MUST POSSESS:

- A VALID DRIVER’S LICENSE (you cannot apply until you have your license)
- A REGISTERED VEHICLE
- DOCUMENTED COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS
( 15 hours for 12th grade; 10 hours for 11th grade)



Limited Number of Permits:

Student parking spaces are a limited resource on campus. Each year the school distributes approximately 360 parking permits, 310 of which are sold in the fall. The remaining are held to accommodate snow removal and are sold at a prorated fee after all snow melts in the early spring. The school does not allow parking permits to be reserved pending a student obtaining a license or vehicle. Permits are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Seniors will be given priority until August 30, 2022. After that date, Juniors will be awarded permits if spots are available.


Featherland:

Students unable to obtain a parking permit often choose to park at Featherland Park, which is maintained by the Town of Sudbury. Featherland is located less than a quarter mile from the high school. Parking at Featherland is free of charge. The availability of Featherland for parking is largely dependent upon the decorum of students using the lot – should our students not treat the park respectfully, the Town would be well within its right to ban parking in this lot. Winter snow events may find Featherland not plowed or the sidewalks between Featherland and the school unusable. Students should plan accordingly and make alternate travel arrangements to and from school as needed.


Parking Fines:

Any previously accrued parking fines must be resolved prior to being eligible for a parking pass. If you have any outstanding parking tickets, you can make payment on MySchoolBucks by clicking the link here. You can check if you have outstanding tickets in Aspen by going to “My Info” top tab and “Tickets” side tab.


Parking Fee:

Parking permits are $300 each. Once your application is processed, you will receive an email with information on how to make your payment. A limited number of job slots will be available for students who would like to work with Buildings & Grounds during the summer to reduce their parking permit cost to $100. You must be able to commit to 3 hours per day (9:30-12:30) for one week in the summer. Interested parties should sign up here. WORKING DOES NOT GUARANTEE A PARKING PASS. Students must complete the application and meet all other requirements. We are also willing to work with you to create a payment plan if needed.


★★★Carpool Parking Permits:

We reserve a limited number of spots for students committed to reducing traffic and environmental impact by committing to a daily carpool. These priority spots will be offered through a lottery for a discounted price of $150.

Participants must commit to rideshare with at least one other driver from outside their household. Driving siblings alone does not meet eligibility criteria. Priority will be given to carpool groups with more than one driver but you can apply if you drive others from outside your household who are not licensed drivers.

Participants must have had their license for at least 6 months, making them eligible to drive others outside of their household. Junior operators are not eligible to carpool.

Participants will be issued 1 pass to share between drivers/vehicles. Drivers are responsible for moving the hang tag between cars as needed.

Agreeing to carpool is a commitment! We understand that there may be occasions when more than one driver in a carpool group needs to drive to school on the same day. These occasions should be rare and only one car will be permitted to park on campus and the other will need to park at Featherland. If this is occurring regularly, the carpool permit may be revoked and a regular permit will be issued only if available.

Parents/Guardians will be contacted and must agree to the carpool rules.


Final Note:

Parking at the high school is a privilege and not a right. This privilege may be limited at any time to accommodate school-sanctioned functions or revoked because of school behavior that merits disciplinary action.
