Busing, Transportation & Parking
Day students must register their vehicles with Mrs. Cassetori in the Dean's Suite if they intend to drive to school. Parking for students is in the municipal lot on South Sprague Avenue or the Kirby Center for Creative Arts parking lot. No student parking is permitted in the Church of Christ Uniting parking lot. If cars are not registered, they may be towed away at owner’s expense, or detention may be assigned to students driving unregistered vehicles. Day students may not use cars from the time their school day begins until the time of their dismissal without the express permission of a dean.
Pennsylvania Act 372 requires that each school district in the state provide transportation facilities to non-public school students living more than two miles but less than 10 miles from the non-public school they are attending. Each district is given flexibility as to how it implements the act.

Boarding students may not ride in a car unless their parents have given written permission to the school. Each time a situation arises that necessitates an exception to this rule, students must gain permission from the Dean of Upper School, a Class Dean or a staff duty leader. Boarding students are not permitted to drive a vehicle (car, motorcycle, etc.) while under the jurisdiction of the school. This jurisdiction begins when the student arrives on campus from home until he/she leaves the campus to go home (or elsewhere) in the company of parents. Boarding students are not permitted to have a vehicle in the Wyoming Valley. International Students: Pennsylvania laws make it very difficult for international students to obtain a driver’s license. Wyoming Seminary will not be able to help students obtain driver’s licenses. Boarding students are not permitted to have vehicles on or in the vicinity of campus.
