Please use both lanes (and stay inside your lane) when entering the school's main driveway entrance.

The traffic pattern at Battlefield was modified in 2007 with the Prince William County Department of Transportation due to the high traffic volume on Route 15 and Graduation Drive immediately before and after school. Upwards of 1,500 individual cars daily pass through the BHS campus, making management of traffic difficult and requiring the cooperation of all parties involved.

Since bus transportation is available for all students in the Battlefield attendance area, students are encouraged to use the service. Those students who must drive private vehicles are subject to regulations regarding their use. Students who wish to drive must register their car with the school's Safety and Security Office and purchase a school parking permit by August 26, 2019, the first day of school. The parking permit will cost $100.00. The replacement cost for a lost or stolen parking permit is $5.00. Read additional information and details about obtaining a parking pass for the 2019-20 school year. Student drivers are responsible for knowing and abiding by all rules governing the student use of vehicles on school grounds. Violation of any driving/parking rules may result in disciplinary action, the withdrawal of driving privileges, and/or the vehicle being towed at the owner's expense. No student may drive or park a private vehicle at school after August 26 without a current parking decal. Students are only permitted to park in the parking lot in a space sold to them. Designated spaces are available for those with a disabled parking placard or plates.

Students and other drivers on school property must keep the fire lanes clear at all times.
