One of the highlights of high school is the first day driving to school as a legal, licensed driver. For the first time, no parents cling onto the passenger door or slam on the non-existent second brake as every car passes safely on the other side of the road. The senior privilege at Wilton High School that allows seniors to park in an assigned spot in the lot next to Lilly Field bolsters this excitement because of its proximity and large spaces in comparison to the minuscule ones in the South Lot.
Each parking pass for the senior lot costs $150. Assistant Principal Linda Lyall explained the cost is decided at the district budget meeting. After taking into account the number of teachers and students in the schools, teacher salaries, and student cost, the team decides on the funds necessary to come in and able to go out. For the past three years, the budgetary committee has set the cost at $150, which contributes to the Wilton High School activity fund.
