Student Parking Passes for 2020-21 School Year
Students who plan to park on campus, once we return to in-person, classes should be aware of a few changes for this year: 
-
 Spaces will be assigned by the Security Office (students may not select a space). 
-
 In keeping with social distancing requirements, every other space will be used so that students are not parking next to another vehicle. 
-
 Student drivers will be assigned to enter through either Door #3 or Door #4, depending on the assigned space, and the entry door will be marked on the pass. 
-
 There is no charge for the parking pass this school year.

To receive a pass, students must fill out and print the attached application, which is a fillable document. Those without easy access to a printer can pick up a paper application outside FPHS Door #23, starting February 16th.  The application must be signed by both the student driver and a parent/guardian.

Passes will be issued daily starting Monday, February 22, at Door #23 from 8 a.m.-3:45 p.m. Drive to Door #23, call the front office at 703-583-3200 and a member of the security office will meet you to take the completed application and give you a pass. 

Students who are not able to pick up their passes before returning to school may park in the overflow lot across from student parking during the week of March 2-5.  Simply bring the completed, signed application to the Security Office on the first floor to receive the pass.  Passes will be required for on-campus student parking beginning March 8.  As always, students must park in their assigned space, and the pass must be visible.  Receipt of a pass is an acknowledgement that students and parents/guardians are familiar with and agree to comply with both PWCS and FPHS parking rules. 

Any questions?  Please call 703-583-3200 and ask to speak with someone in the Security Office.
