Derby High School Principal Tim Hamblin would like to provide information regarding parking renovations and how that work will impact visitors to DHS. Please find details below. Related maps can be found HERE

"Dear Panther Parents and Students, We are excited to share that the second phase of renovations and new construction at Derby High School will soon begin. Preliminary work in the form of fencing may appear in the middle of October. Along with the excitement we feel, we also realize there is no way to avoid challenges and inconveniences during the execution of these projects. It is our hope to minimize inconveniences where possible. Without question the largest inconvenience to students will be associated with parking on campus. After all renovations and new construction are complete, Derby High School will have even more parking stalls on campus; however, during the construction phase of the new FEMA shelter and the Panther Activity Center, some parking will be displaced and moved to a temporary parking lot south of the DHS tennis courts and softball field. Given that the K-hall parking lot has been reserved for after school student pickup, there will be no reduction in the number of parking stalls available to students during the school day. There will be the same number of stalls during construction as there are today but some will be a greater distance from the building.

Parking will continue on a first come, first served basis.  Parent and bus drop off will not change. The student pickup area in K-hall will have a reduced number of stalls, but some stalls will remain during phase 2. The direct impact to each lot is below:

G-hall Parking Lot - Out of 175 original stalls 47 will be accessible. 

K-hall Parking Lot - Out of 105 original stalls 30 will be accessible.  

Student Lot, Near Tennis Courts - 49 new permanent stalls will be constructed south of the existing student lot near the tennis courts.

Temporary Lot - 80 temporary stalls will be constructed in the temporary lot south of the tennis courts and softball field.  

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during Phase 2 of our renovations and construction. The short term pain we will experience will produce long term gains we will benefit from for years."
