• On November 17, 2018, the 1.2 mile section of U.S. 421/Interstate 40 Business (Business 40) between Peters Creek Parkway and U.S. 52 through the heart of downtown Winston-Salem will close for construction.  NCDOT estimates it will not reopen until 2020.  Because Business 40 is a lifeline for commuters from all areas of the county and is a connector for students coming from different high schools to the WS/FCS Career Center, we want staff, parents, and students prepared to navigate while the road is closed. In the lists below are maps with alternative routes prepared by WS/FCS and NCDOT.

    Parking Stickers

    • Cost $10 once students purchase a Home School parking sticker (for $115)
    • All-Day Career Center students can purchase a sticker for $125

    How to purchase a Career Center Parking Sticker

    • Purchase a parking sticker at your Home School and get a RECEIPT
    • Bring the following to the Career Center office to pick up a parking sticker
      • RECEIPT from Home School (must purchase Home School sticker first)
      • $10 CASH Career Center Student Driving & Parking Permit FORM (completed & signed by parent)
        • Form found in link above & in CC office

      • Driver’s License & Vehicle Registration (copy not needed)

    ALL STUDENT DRIVERS MUST HAVE A CAREER CENTER PARKING STICKER BY THE 3RD DAY OF SCHOOL (August 29, 2018).  Students are NOT ALLOWED to park on campus after the 3rd day of school without a Career Center parking sticker.  There is NO guarantee that there will be adequate parking for morning students.  Stickers are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.  Because of limited space, we will sell a finite number of parking stickers to start the year.  Students will then be placed on a Waitlist.  Waitlisted students will be contacted once available parking lot space has been established. 


    Temporary Parking Passes are issued to students (who have a CC sticker) who need to change automobiles for a short period of time or who need preferential parking due to medical need.


    *Students who DO NOT purchase a sticker but need a 1-day pass should purchase that pass BEFORE parking on the CC campus.  There is NO guarantee that there will be space for a morning student wanting a 1-day pass.  After 5 days students must purchase a sticker to continue parking at CC. 


    No 1-day passes will be sold during the first month of school to students without a sticker.


    ALL students (with sticker or with 1-day pass) MUST park in the correct lot at CC.  Failure to do so constitutes a parking violation with a $10 fine. 



    PARK CORRECTLY at Career Center!
