Parking

SENIOR PARKING CLASS of '25



Student Parking is Limited to Seniors Only 
 

Please be advised that only students with a parking permit may park in the York student parking spaces. Students found to be parked in the lot without permission are subject to school discipline and/or towing at the owner’s expense.

York’s Parking Permits are issued through a lottery system due to the limited amount of student spaces available (156). Students who receive a spot will occupy the spot for the entire school year. All others will be placed on a waitlist. 

Seniors (and students who will participate in Invite to Teach, Career Internship, or Med Careers courses) may click on the link below to fill out the form to enter the 2024-2025 Parking Lottery. The form will close on June 15, 2024. (Parking assignments will be made over the summer. Notifications will be sent via email after July 15.)

Also, please be advised that York High School does NOT have an agreement with any surrounding businesses to park in their lots. Students who park there do so at their own risk. 

York does not issue temporary parking permits for the following: Participation in sports, before and after school activities, work related issues, doctor’s appointments, sudden changes in transportation to and from school. Students and parents will need to make arrangements or check bus routes.

Students may consider carpooling to reduce traffic congestion during arrival/dismissal times. Students, families, and staff need to understand that there is increased traffic in the community and they need to be prepared for extra travel time at the start and end of the school day. Driving defensively and cooperating with one another will greatly assist with the overall safety of arrival and dismissal.

If you have questions concerning parking, please contact Dean Tonja Killingham at tkillingham@elmhurst205.org.
