Vehicles with state/federal handicap stickers will be allowed to park in designated handicap spaces located near the EHS Commons. For those who need assistance, but do not have handicap parking stickers, drop-off will be available in front of the Commons. Additional parking is located in the Edgewood College ramp at no charge. All parking is available on a first come, first served basis.
Do not park in fire lanes, in front of fire hydrants, or tow-away zones. The City of Madison has jurisdiction to ticket and tow vehicles. Citations can be as high as $500.00 for these parking violations. Valid permits are required for use of handicap spaces.
Wilke Gym Graduation Seating Information
For the graduation ceremony on Friday, May 19 be courteous and considerate by allowing handicapped and disabled persons to sit in the reserved front row bleachers of the Wilke Gym. We ask that the main floor bleachers of the Wilke Gym be used by the graduate's immediate family members and ask others to sit in the balcony. We also kindly request that individuals not save large sections of seats for others. If you have a guest who is disabled and requires special seating, please notify Shannon McDonough, assistant principal, in advance via e-mail.
