If you are an NPC student and you drive your own vehicle to school, please be advised that you now have access to the first six rows of parking in the lot. We have managed to condense our staff lot, freeing up 16 more parking spots for students. If you continue however to park in the visitor lot or staff spots, you will be towed. Thanks for your cooperation.

Winkler Community Foundation Grant Application

For the past year and a half parking has been a contentious issue at NPC. When the building was constructed it came with a limited number of parking spots. These spots were divided between the staff, students, and daycare employees. Every student in our catchment area is also provided with free busing to the school. Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of students choosing to drive their vehicle and illegally park. This includes students parking in visitor parking, on GVSD property, in front of fire hydrants, in the adjacent farmer's field, and in front of no parking signs.
In the near future, GVSD Operations, NPC Administration, the Winkler Police, and the City of Winkler hope to sit down and discuss possible solutions. In the meantime, if students are going to continue to park illegally on GVSD property they risk having their vehicle towed and forced to pay the impound fees.
We would appreciate if parents could speak with their children and encourage them to either take the bus (preferred) or if they must drive to park where it is legal to do so.
