Student Parking

Instructions for students who have selected in-person learning for the 2020-2021 school year and wish to obtain a parking hang-tag.

Updated February 10, 2021

The digital parking application form is live:

Apply Here: WHS Student Parking Application 2020 - 2021


This year the parking application is completely digital.  There will be no forms to hand-in.  We require that families complete the application together (student and parent or guardian) to ensure accuracy and understanding of Westfield's parking policies.

Thank you for your understanding while we keep our student drivers safe and our school community safe.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our policies and procedures for obtaining permission and a permit to park on campus have temporarily changed.

Please read carefully. As always, safety is our number one priority. Our continued goal is to provide our students with the knowledge they need to park on campus while ensuring a safe environment for all. We will do our best to maintain this goal while allowing for adjustments to the ever-changing challenges of COVID-19.  We acknowledge and respect the individual and unique challenges facing the community we serve and will do our best to address any concerns you have. Maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students and staff remains our number one priority. Thank you!

For the 2020-2021 school year, only those students who have opted for in-person/hybrid/concurrent learning upon returning to school will be given access to a parking hangtag. Additionally, parking is subject to availability as determined by the County and on-site Safety and Security Specialist.

  • FCPS has announced that parking fees are being waived for the 2020-2021 school year. The reinstatement of any parking fees for future years will be determined based on the pandemic status and its impacts on the school year at that time.

  • As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the main office WILL NOT accept applications this year. Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will solely be done via digital submission and will not require the printing, signing, and turning in of forms as in previous years.

  • Procedures for academy students needing to travel from one campus to another will be addressed on a case by case basis/as needed and governed by the current health crisis situation.  Academy students wanting to park on campus and then drive to their academy locations must contact the base school and academy school principal to receive permission. Otherwise bus service will be available.

  • Students opting to obtain parking for the in-person portion of the 20-21 school year, are expected to remain at school for the duration of the school day unless administrative arrangements have been made in advance and permission granted for early dismissal.

Parking on school grounds is a privilege. Students wishing to park on campus during school hours are required to have an FCPS issued hangtag. Parking without a hangtag obtained as described is prohibited, as is parking at Cub Run RECenter or other private and professional business lots in the surrounding areas. The WHS Administrative Staff reserves the right to deny any student the privilege of parking on school grounds. In order to park on school grounds, the following process must be followed exactly as outlined. Please note that failure to properly submit an application will cause delays in processing and could result in the issuance of citations, booting, and/or towing, all of which are accompanied by fines/fees. Additional sanctions could be imposed if deemed necessary and at the discrepancy of the WHS Administrative Team and/or the Safety & Security Specialist.  

If you have any questions, please contact Safety & Security Assistant, Amy Coots or call 703-488-6308.
