Warren County High School is taking precautions regarding COVID-19 with school officials planning a drive-thru registration to limit in-person contact.
An email has been sent to students with information on how to receive a parking pass for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. All students wishing to receive a parking pass must complete a form and submit it by this Monday, July 27.
“With that information we will assign the parking spaces to each student and try our best to give them the section they chose as their first option,” said Warren County High School principal Clark George. “We asked what their first, second, and third choice was, so we could go with the second or third option if their first pick was not available.”
The school is taking this approach to help with its plan to offer drive-thru registration.
“We plan to have students pull up and receive their schedule, assigned parking pass, and anything else they need to receive from their car. This will keep from having the groups of people we normally have in the gym on registration days,” said George.
Online applications for parking and a drive-thru registration is an attempt by the school to take extra precautions to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 in hopes of providing students with a normal school year.
The email also reminds students they are only allowed to receive a parking pass if they currently have a driver’s license. Anyone with a learner’s permit is not allowed to pre-reserve a parking space.
