Parking

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 heather.delong@orono.k12.mn.us 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.)

Helpful documents:

  1. Student driving and parking information
  2. Flyer announcing the 2020-21 Parking Pass application process

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.

GRADUATION UPDATE as of April 14, 2021: We are pleased to share some preliminary information about the Class of 2021 Commencement ceremony. We are currently discussing specific details, and will announce more information as we are able. Please know that our plans may change if the Minnesota Departments of Health and Education (MDH and MDE) issue updated health and safety requirements and guidelines.

 
The Orono High School Class of 2021 Commencement
will take place at Pesonen Stadium on June 9, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
 
Seating: At this point we anticipate each graduate will have at least two tickets for family or guests. We are continuing to work with MDH and MDE in the hopes of adding more capacity. We will let you know if that is the case. Families will not be able to choose seats, but will be randomly assigned.  The ceremony will be live streamed as well for any family members and friends who are unable to attend.
 
Inclement Weather Date: In the event of inclement weather, we will move the ceremony to Saturday, June 12, 2021.  We will communicate the change of date by 12 p.m. (noon) on June 9. This will allow us to have as many family members as possible, and to honor the student-desired tradition of holding the Commencement ceremony at Pesonen Stadium. If we are unable to have an outdoor ceremony on June 12, we will then move the ceremony inside on the same date and time, with more limited seating required for an indoor venue.
 
We will communicate additional details as soon as possible so that you can plan with your family. We thank you for your patience and understanding. It is our goal to celebrate our senior class and to create a memorable experience for families.

All seniors will be charged a “Senior Fee” of $40. This fee covers portions of the fees associated with the senior year, including transcripts and commencement. The senior fee is under your senior’s name in MyPaymentsPlus.
