Construction on BHS campus creates parking crunch for students

Construction on the campus and Bainbridge High School this fall will mean fewer parking spots for student drivers.

Students have been notified that there won’t be as much available parking at BHS this school year — about 70 fewer spots than last year — and the school started taking applications for permits earlier this week.

District spokeswoman Erin Bischoff said parking passes will be handed out after a random drawing, although priority will be given to senior students.

Applications won’t be accepted from 10th-grade students, she said.

Students have also been asked to carpool.

Work on the new 100 Building at Bainbridge High started earlier this year.

The 100 Building houses the high school’s fine arts, special education program, and career and technical classes, and the new building is being financed by a bond measure passed in February 2016 and a capital levy approved by voters earlier this year.

Construction of the new 100 Building is planned to start in September, with work wrapping up in November 2020. Conversion of the commons area in the 200 Building into a performing arts theater will begin in January 2020.
