SENIOR PARKING PRIVILEGE
The Board of Education provides bus transportation as well as activity bus routes in order to transport students to and from school. Students driving to school and parking on campus is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. Parking permits will only be issued to SENIOR students who meet the eligibility requirements and follow the proper application process. Please visit the Senior Parking section of the Student page on the North Hunterdon website. By purchasing a parking permit, students and their parents agree to follow all of the rules and regulations set forth below by the Administration. These rules are subject to change at any time.
Students will be denied parking privileges for infractions of school rules, motor vehicle violations or having any outstanding financial obligations.
