Student Parking - April 5th
Yearbook Art

The construction crew for the new Warren Tech South will not have completed the extended ST student parking lot by April 5th when students return to in-person learning 4 days a week.  Student parking will be very limited in the main lot for the remainder of the school year.

Students who want to park will need to either arrive early each day or begin a parking space search in the Foothills Parking area (Dirt Lot) located just south of the softball fields.  We have added a new sidewalk from this lot to our school property. 

There is no cost for a parking pass for either the main lot or the Foothills lot this year but parking permits are still required. To get a parking tag select the Campus Life tab at the top of the webpage and select the Parking Permit Application. Once the online form is submitted students can pick up the tag at the attendance window at the school. Vehicles without tags will be subject to parking tickets.
