Parking for 2020-21
How to pick up parking permits: Students can pick up parking permits at the Main Office September 1-4, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students need to bring their driver’s license. If students cannot pick up during this time, they should email Heather DeLong at email@example.com for further instructions.
Applications for student parking passes opened on August 24, 2020. The parking pass fee is $218, due at the time of application. Due to COVID-19, high school students may be required to shift between any of the three learning models: in-person, hybrid or distance learning, during the school year. For this reason—and for this year only—the district will evaluate the high school learning model/on-campus days each quarter and consider issuing a one-time, partial refund at the end of the school year.
Parking passes are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Please wait to complete a bus transportation opt-out form until your child has secured a parking pass for the 2020-21 school year. It is helpful to note that most students who apply for a parking pass with a valid driver’s license are granted a pass for the school year. (Students should wait until they have their official driver’s license before applying as we cannot reserve parking permits.)
To apply: Beginning August 24 at 9:00 AM, please log in to My Payments Plus found on the district website at the top of the web page. For questions, or if you have not already created an account, please see our support page.
