Parking Lot Closed to Students

Good evening:

In lieu of the parking ban imposed by HRM, it is expected that many side streets will continue to be unavailable for Wednesday, March 25. Auburn Drive’s parking will be limited to staff members only until further notice. For safety reasons, students who would normally drive their vehicles to school are asked to take the school bus or find another means of transportation. Staff will be parking on both the North and South areas of the building. For more information and continued updates visit or

Thank you for your cooperation,

A student shall not accumulate any more than (4) lates in any course in which the student is enrolled within any one semester.
