Students are granted the privilege of driving a motor vehicle to school provided they are issued a permit. These permits may be obtained from the administration in accordance with announced dates, times and requirements. Alvirne High School reserves the right to restrict parking if the number of permits requested is greater than the number of available parking spaces.
I. Parking permit criteria:
- Students must have a 2.0 GPA (C average) or higher from the previous quarter to qualify for a permit.
- Seniors will be given first preference followed by juniors.

- Students must present the vehicle(s) current registration when they apply. Students may register two cars, each with its own permit affixed to the window.
- Students must pay a $25.00 fee for the first vehicle permit and $10 for registering a second vehicle. If a student needs to register a different vehicle, which will replace the initial registered vehicle, they must: fill out a Parking Permit application for the replacement vehicle; remove and return the sticker from the vehicle they no longer will use; and obtain a new sticker at no charge.
- If a student with a parking permit needs to drive a different car to school for a day or two, due to car repairs, etc., the student must register the temporary vehicle’s information in the Student Management Office.
- Students must show documented proof of insurance coverage; if coverage expires or is revoked, the parking privilege will be revoked.
