*Please read all instructions carefully for obtaining a parking pass at BPHS.
UPDATE: BEFORE you pick up your parking pass from the Activities Office, students must turn in a copy of the Owner’s Card, Insurance Card, Driver’s License, and Passenger List Form. BE SURE YOU BRING COPIES OF THESE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS WHEN YOU COME TO CAMPUS!
The first step in signing up for a parking pass will be to complete this Google Sign-Up Form to secure your (Virtual) place in line. This form will become “live” to submit at 8:00 PM on Sunday, August 14, 2022. The order in which you sign up will be the order passes are assigned to students.
Unlike previous years, where students would line up to get the closer parking spots, students will be assigned parking spots based on the order students submit the form. There will be a short priority allotted for senior students to sign up and then remaining spaces will be assigned based on the order to both seniors and juniors who sign up on the form.
Following the completion of sign-ups, students will have until the start of school to complete all the necessary paperwork and purchase their reserved spaces in Step 2. Only students who have completed the registration process and picked up their passes will be able to drive and park in their assigned spots. Any reserved passes that students do not pick up by the start of school will be placed back into circulation for another student to purchase. Any students who attempt to drive without a parking pass will be ticketed and assigned an obligation of the full price of a Parking Pass ($50).
The Cost of the 2022-23 Parking Passes is $50.00. The purchase of a parking pass is payable by check or money order to the “Bethel Park High School Activity Fund”. Students that purchase a 2022-23 parking pass after April 1, 2023, may pay a prorated cost of $25.00. Sophomores may purchase passes if available, they have a valid PA Drivers License, and have completed all necessary paperwork.

Students are permitted to park ONLY in their assigned spot in the Stadium Parking Lot, the far lot near the Softball Field. Student spots are marked with a number that coincides with the number on the parking pass. Students may not park in other students' parking spaces.

DRIVING TO SCHOOL PROCEDURES:
In accordance with the two student parking locations, students may only enter campus and park as indicated by lots they selected. The parking pass allows drivers to enter the campus off of Church Road and park in the high school lot adjacent to the faculty parking lot (not in the faculty area). The other students are to enter off of Broad Street and park in the assigned space adjacent to the Athletic Stadium. Students may not switch pass locations without proper approval by administration. Failure to abide by the entrance location and designated parking locations will result in a loss of driving privileges and will be issued discipline as identified by the Student Handbook. Students are not permitted to drive their vehicle through the front entrance of the building area (circle) during the school day. Doing so may result in a loss of student parking permit.
Parking Permits will not be issued to students who have outstanding obligations.
