RHAM HIGH SCHOOL
Parking Permit Application
STUDENT DRIVING/PARKING RULES
All students who wish to drive to school must pay the RHAM High School Parking Fee and register their vehicles by submitting a completed application form, along with a copy of their valid Connecticut driver’s license and current insurance card. A Parking Permit will be issued which will designate an assigned parking area – Senior-Upper Lot (Purple with White letters), Junior -Lower Lot (Teal with Black letters) or Veterans Park (Purple or Teal).
Senior Parking is in the upper lot in spaces numbered 186-207 and any of the unnumbered spaces. Sophomores and Juniors with permits may only park in the lower lot (by the tennis courts and football field). Due to limited parking spaces, cars must be parked in their assigned area. Individual spaces are not assigned. Parking privileges are not transferable to other automobiles or students. Only students in possession of a 2020-2021 parking permit are allowed to park at these school parking locations.
STUDENTS MAY NOT PARK ON ANY GRASS OR STAFF PARKING AREAS. Any student who parks in an unapproved area will be subject to disciplinary action, including but not limited to fines, detention, in-school suspension, towing and loss of driving privileges on school grounds.
STUDENTS WHO PARK IN A MARKED FIRE LANE WILL BE FINED.
Students are to familiarize themselves with the rules regarding student driving/parking. In particular, students are prohibited from driving off campus or in the parking lot during school hours without permission. Violation of this rule may result in loss of driving/parking privileges on school grounds.
