We consider a constant coefficient parabolic equation of order $2m$ and establish the existence of solutions to the initial-Dirichlet problem in cylindrical domains. The lateral data is taken from spaces of Whitney arrays which essentially require that the normal derivatives up to order $m-1$ lie in $L^2$ with respect to surface measure. In addition, a regularity result for the solution is obtained if the data has one more derivative. The boundary of the space domain is given by the graph of a Lipschitz function. This provides an extension of the methods of Pipher and Verchota on elliptic equations to parabolic equations.
