Directions

There is no parking in the marked fire lanes next to the building. We must maintain ready access for emergency vehicles. This rule holds even if the parking lot is really crowded and you can’t find a space! The parking lot at the middle school is just a short walk away from the high school, and serves as an overflow lot when high school parking lots fill up.
