From the Playing Field to the Stage, Central Catholic offers something for everyone.
Spring Parking Permits
Online applications for the Winter Parking Season may be completed beginning Friday, February 1. Applications received after Friday, February 15th may not receive a permit, even if your son lives in a district that does not provide transportation or is involved in a Spring sport. Any student who would like to be considered for a permit must complete an online application, even if he received a Winter permit. Preference may also be given to students who are willing to share a permit with another student driver – please consider this option if at all possible! In the case of shared permits, BOTH/ALL students wishing to share the permit MUST apply separately!! Additional information is available in the Student/Parent Handbook (p. 41-42)
Matters related to student parking are handled by the Assistant Principal for Student Affairs(Office C). During the school year, seniors and juniors who wish to use the parking lot mustcomplete the online application .
With more than 400 seniors and juniors and only 100 student parking spaces, we cannotaccommodate all students who desire a parking space. Therefore, the following priorities forpermits will be followed without exception. The priorities are designed to allow students who arenot transported by their school districts to attend Central Catholic and to encourage participationin extracurricular activities by as many students as possible.
To be considered for a parking permit, students must meet their quota for the primaryfund-raiser (currently the Magazine Drive) supporting student activities. A student who has notmet his quota and wants to be considered for a permit must make a yearly, one-time contributionof $50 to the Activities Fund. Central Catholic is not obliged to provide parking nor to givepermits to students who are not involved in a school-related activity, students who work or whotransport others, or for any reason other than those stated below.
First Priority: Seniors and juniors who live beyond two miles from Central Catholic and who arein public school districts that do not provide transportation to/from Central Catholic via schoolor PAT bus.
Second Priority: Seniors, then juniors, who are involved in Central Catholic activities that requirethem to stay after school at least twice per week. Due to senior requirements, most juniors willnot receive permits during the spring season.
Many students will not receive a permit.
The privilege of parking in the lot may be denied if school policies are not followed. Those whoare assigned disciplinary ineligibility will not receive a parking permit or will have the permitrevoked if it has already been issued.
Sophomores and freshmen may not park in the lot at any time.
Permits are issued for fall, winter, and spring and become invalid at the season’s end. A studentmay receive a permit during a season in which he is involved in activities (especially athletics). Ifhe needs a parking space for the above reasons, he must fill out an application for each season.Parents should not call the school to request a permit for their son.
It is the student’s responsibility to submit his application to Office C by the published deadline.Late or incomplete applications, including those of Priority 1 and 2 students, will be denied aparking permit. No exceptions will be made to this policy.
When the maximum number of permits has been issued, students will be placed on a waitinglist. A photocopy of the applicant’s driver’s license and the registration card for each vehicle(limit two vehicles) must be attached to the application. Students who submit a fall and/orwinter application with copies of their registration and license, and do not have any changes,need not resubmit registration and license photocopies.
Permits may not be given, sold, or shared with another student without permission from OfficeC. If approved, a student may share a permit with another student. However, both drivers mustcomplete an application and clearly include the other student. Failure to follow this policy willresult in revocation of parking privileges for the remainder of the school year for both students.Students must notify Office C immediately of any change or addition to vehicle information.
Students who need to go to their car during the school day must first receive permission from
Office C. Special requests to park in or to use the lot at any time must be approved by Office C.Permits are distributed on the published date for each season, at which time a $25 fee must bepaid. Do not submit money or check with the application. No refunds will be made. Permitsmust be displayed immediately. Parking in the lot is at the owner’s risk.
