As a reminder the "Boot Fine" has been lowered to $10.00 per occurrence; however, the "boot" will be utilized more often and the fine enforced for students found to be parking on school grounds without a permit, parking in the faculty lot or Flanders School and near the Pool. Please park in student parking lots only.
Student parking at ELHS is always a big concern for both students and parents who have personal vehicles available for student transportation. Unfortunately we have a very limited number of parking spots available for students. I can appreciate the difficulty and inconvenience this causes for families and students, however, we may not able to accommodate all student drivers and I appreciate your consideration and understanding regarding this matter.
A NEW PARKING PERMIT MUST BE OBTAINED FOR EACH SCHOOL YEAR. THE PERMITS ARE NOT BASED ON THE CALENDAR YEAR. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD A PARKING PERMIT APPLICATION.
Students who are eligible to park, pay a $50.00 parking permit fee and MUST display a hanging parking permit tag from their rear view mirror (or readily visible from the front of the vehicle) at all times while parked in designated parking lots only.
Eligible students who are caught parking without a parking permit will be subject to disciplinary actions and may be required to pay a $75.00 parking permit fee in order to obtain their parking permit. Additionally, students who park without permission or in non-designated parking areas may be subject to a $10.00 “Boot” fine as well as any other administrative actions deemed necessary by the administration.
Students are reminded that they are responsible for adhering to and following all State of Connecticut Motor Vehicle Laws. Violations of these laws may lead to the revocation of the students parking privileges and referral to the East Lyme Police Department.
The following information is provided for your convenience and information:
1. Student parking permits are available to SENIORS and JUNIORS commencing as stated above and continuing throughout the school year during regular business hours. Seniors are strongly encouraged to obtain a parking permit as soon as possible as the parking spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
2. Sophomore and Freshman students are not allowed to park on campus during the regular school day hours until such time that available spots may be available for Sophomores.
3. Parking enforcement will be conducted throughout the school year, to include an emphasis at the beginning of the school year. Disciplinary action relative to parking enforcement is included in the student handbook.
4. Students are not allowed to park next to the Aquatics Center, in the Flanders School parking lot or in the faculty parking lot at any time during regular school hours.
