Neighborhood Parking Information

As you are aware parking spaces on our campus for our students are quite limited resulting in our students parking on local streets. Although most do so appropriately, it has been brought to our attention that in certain areas students are littering, blocking driveways with their cars and driving at unsafe speeds causing significant safety concerns for our neighbors and their children.

Please note that according to the NYS license laws, In Nassau and Suffolk counties, young drivers under the age of 17 who do not hold a class D license, are prohibited from driving to school unless they are supervised by an adult.

If your child drives to school please discuss these concerns with them. Should these issues not resolve, the result could be a loss of present and/or future campus parking and out to lunch  privileges for those offenders. 

As discussed in our opening assemblies with every 11 and 12 grade student, our goal is not only for safe travel to and from campus, but respect for the neighbors in our community.

Thank you for your cooperation.
