    Parking on the Porter Ridge Campus is considered a privilege for students. Each student who drives to school must purchase his/her own parking tag, and may not share a tag with another student. PRHS and UCPS will assume no responsibility for damage to private vehicles driven and parked on campus. Student drivers must have appropriate auto insurance. All student drivers must be properly licensed.

    Parking Passes are restricted to students in grades 10, 11, and 12. Students must have a valid driver’s license, not a learner’s permit. Students cannot purchase a pass for future needs, they must be qualified to do so now (grades 10, 11, and 12 with a valid driver’s license).

    All students who are granted parking privileges will be charged a $40 non-refundable fee.  Parking spot priority is to be assigned based on grade level, starting with 12th grade first, then 11th grade, then 10th grade.   Students will be assigned in the order they fill out the form. Students will select a desired parking zone (refer to the map below). The actual parking spot will be assigned in your selected zone based on the purchase receipt timestamp. Once a zone is full, you will not be able to purchase a pass in that area and will be assigned to the next closest zone.
