Parking is open to seniors for either the fall or spring only. Applications MUST be submitted for each semester.
STUDENT PARKING APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
Parking is open to Seniors only and is a privilege, not a right. Seniors are eligible upon completion of an on-line application form submitted in accordance with posted deadlines. The application includes:
1. A fee of $35.00 per semester in a check made payable to Hillsborough High School. No cash. Returned checks must be replaced with a cash only payment of $42.00
2. Required documents for parking application include student driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance, which will be presented when parking tags are distributed. All documents must be current at the time of application and must be updated if they expire during the school year.
3. Random Drug and Alcohol Policy Form must be completed or on file.
If the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces, a computer generated random lottery will be conducted to determine parking assignments.
Parking permits are valid for one semester. Each student who receives a permit will be assigned to a designated lot. However, individual spaces within those lots are not assigned. Permits are issued at the start of school, at the semester change, and throughout the remainder of the school year as space permits.
