General Parking Policy
Every parking space on the Close is assigned to one of the four institutions on the Close. St. Albans parking spots include all the spaces on Senior Circle, most of the spaces on Pilgrim Road, and some spaces on South Road and Lych Gate Road. We have divided these spaces into parking areas for faculty, students, and other community members. Cars parked in these spaces between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday – Friday, must have an assigned Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation (PECF) hangtag. At other times, parking on the Close is open to anyone. Surface parking after 11:00 p.m. is prohibited without authorization.
Parking Registration and Hangtags
Hangtags will be issued by the PECF police free of charge during student registration and faculty meetings. During the year, if a faculty member, staff member, or student needs to replace or acquire a new hangtag, he/she should go to the PECF security office, located on the top floor of the parking garage. Families of students who drive to school will be issued a maximum of one hangtag.
On campus, we have designated parking spaces for students and faculty. Students and faculty should never park on Garfield Street or in the surrounding neighborhood.
Parents coming to school for a meeting on week days between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. may park in one of the visitor parking spaces on Pilgrim Road or Senior Circle, if available. If not, we ask you to park in the PECF garage which is accessible via the Hearst Hall traffic light off Wisconsin Avenue. While the garage normally charges an hourly fee, the School will validate up to two hours of parking for parents in these situations. To receive a validation stamp, parents should bring their parking ticket to the St. Albans School receptionist.
If parents are attending an event after 3:30 p.m. or on weekends, we ask that they their car on the Close, which does not require a permit or hangtag outside the school day.
Visitors to St. Albans School should park in the Cathedral parking garage, which is accessible via the Hearst Hall traffic light off Wisconsin Avenue.
Between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday – Friday, faculty, staff, and students may park only in the designated spots and with the proper display of identification. The PECF Police will enforce parking policies, and violators will be subject to ticketing, fines, and in some cases, towing. Unpaid tickets will be reported to a collection agency.
