  • On Eagle Drive by Eagle stadium  – you will be directed to pull into the visitor side parking lot of Eagle Stadium (DO NOT STOP UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD TO DO SO)

  • Pull to a stop to unload all passengers – be safe, make sure students are all clear

  • After unloading, you will be directed to pull out and turn south (left turn only) onto Westmoreland Drive. You can then leave the event, park on the south side of the Freshman wing or into the MPC – depending on your needs



  • Vehicles not carrying participants in the parade will continue west bound on Eagle past the drop-off area and turn north (right) onto Westmoreland



  • Elementary/Middle School students enter the parking lot and proceed directly to ES/MS designated area in the stadium visitor section stands

  • DHS students enter the parking lot and proceed to Eagle Stadium (visitor side)

    • This includes band, cheer, drill team, JROTC, etc.


YOUNGER STUDENT PARENT PICKUP (elementary and middle school)

Elementary and middle school students will be escorted by chaperones to the designated area in the stadium visitor section stands. School staff members will wait with the students at the designated area until the students are picked up by their parents.



Parking is available in all parking lots except the visitor section and the parking lot between the stadium and the west side of the school. These lots are reserved for float debarkation and specific participant vehicles.
