STUDENT PARKING APPLICATION PROCESS 2023-2024

  • EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MARCH 25TH 2024:  JUNIORS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO APPLY FOR PARKING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE ONGOING CONSTRUCTION. WE HAVE DISTRIBUTED OUR ALLOTTED NUMBER OF PERMITS AT THIS TIME.

    ***Juniors who already have permits who need to change information in the portal (Add a vehicle or replace a vehicle)  must give the information to Mr. Biondo between 7:05 am and 7:20 am and he will make the necessary changes in the portal on PowerSchool for you.

    Juniors: Make sure you park in the designated areas of the Junior lot down by the field house.  Look at the Diagram You Received when you were issued your permit.

    Student parking is a privilege.  All vehicles on school property during the school day MUST display a current, valid parking permit.  For the 2023-2024 school year, OPHS parking permits will be issued to students who are able to drive to school on a daily basis to alleviate congestion on school buses.  The parking application is free, so there is no excuse for not having a permit on the vehicle if the student is driving to school.

    ***Students should not drive to school with the anticipation of receiving their parking permit that day unless given permission from Mr. Biondo.

    Applications for student parking permits should be completed on-line, on the parent portal.  The application is only available on the parent portal, NOT the student portal.  Our suggestion is to have the parent and student complete the form together.  There is currently NO charge for student parking.  However, you MUST complete the entire application process to receive a current, valid permit. You must hit SUBMIT once you have filled out the application.

    Student Parking Privileges are reserved for Seniors and Juniors ONLY.  Sophomores, even if they are of age and have a NYS Drivers' License, are NOT permitted to drive to school under any circumstances.
