Parking Lot, Security and Rules
Please be reminded: the circle near the east entrance/tennis courts will be closed for auto traffic. Also there are about 10 parking spots close to the circle and these spots will be reserved for teachers only. Please use the west parking lot A to avoid traffic.
Direction to Parking Lot A: use the White Plains High School entrance at Bryant Ave, follow the “Student Parking” sign to the West/Main parking lot. An entrance to the building will be provided close to Lot A. This entrance will continue to be open between 9:20 and 9:50 AM for the rest of school year.
If you enter from the North street to access to Lot A, do not violate the traffic rules by entering the “One Way” lane from an opposite direction. Drive forward further. You will be closer to the entrance to the building.
For your safety, security team would like to remind all parents:
• Do not drop off your kid(s) close to the North Street entrance
• Do not block traffic, pay attention to pedestrians
• Do not violate the traffic rules by entering the “One Way” lane from an opposite direction
• Do not park on the fire line marked with yellow strips
In order for us to continue use White Plain High School as our Chinese school campus, HXGNY Admin team reminds teachers, parents and students respect and follow the rules from WPHS:
• Classrooms must be left the same way they are found
• Furniture in original positions
• Do not unplug computers
• Do not touch smart boards
• Do not eat in the classrooms
• Outside doors need to be closed and locked at all times for security reasons
• Do not park in the “no parking” areas which creates fire hazards
• Do not run in the hallways
We appreciate all parents cooperation in the past weeks.
