    Students are only expected to attend school when they have an exam. Students who do not have a morning exam are not required to attend school in the morning (7:25-9:35). Students may leave school after they finish their morning exams if they do not have an afternoon exam. Students who leave early and/or come late must provide their own transportation. During exams buses will operate on their REGULAR schedule, departing at 2:10 pm. Study Halls will be available for those students who do not have transportation to leave after an exam and/or if they come to school early and do not have an exam until the afternoon.  

    Important Parking Instructions for Visitors

    • Visitor parking spaces are available in the parking lot located on the Fleet Street entrance of the school.  Parking for visitors is limited.  Visitor spaces are clearly marked. 
    • The numbered spaces in this parking lot are for staff only.  Do not park in the numbered spaces.  
    • If no visitor spaces are available, you can park in front of the school in the bus loop - as long as you will be leaving the school by 1:00 p.m.  Please park along the far left curb, leaving the area directly in front of the school clear.  
    • Let the secretaries in the front office know where you are parked when you check in.  
    • You will need your photo I.D. in order to enter the building. 
    • If you are visiting after 1:00 p.m. and there are no visitor spaces, metered parking is available along Fleet Street.  
    • Do not park in the student parking lot which is located next to the stadium. This lot is for students only, and this entrance is locked.
