Parking

Parking permits will go on sale during lunch on August 23, 2021.

Parking monitoring will begin on August 30, 2021.

 

Please carefully read all of the information below. Students are responsible for this information before purchasing a parking permit.

STEP 1: IDENTIFY YOUR PARKING PERMIT

  • A new parking permit must be purchased every school year. Permits do NOT carry over from previous school years.
  • Standard Senior permit: Senior permit for all 12th grade students, including Senior reserved. View the procedures to purchase a painted Senior reserved space here.
  • “M” permit: Mane Lot permit for all 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students.

STEP 2: PURCHASE YOUR PARKING PERMIT

All documents for Standard Senior permits and “M” permits, including payment, are located on this Google Form. (The procedures to purchase a painted Senior reserved space here.)  We only accept online payments, which will have a transaction fee not included in our pricing. In order to fill out the form, students must sign into their school Google account. After students submit the Google form and payment, they may pick up their parking pass during lunches in F201.

Below are the parking fees for Standard Senior permits and “M” permits.

  • $60.00 – August 2, 2021 – December 17, 2021
  • $30.00 – January 3, 2022 – April 29, 2022
  • $15.00 – On or after April 30th, 2022

STEP 3: PLACE YOUR PERMIT ON THE WINDSHIELD

Only vehicles with a current MHS parking decal will be allowed to park on campus. All previous year’s permits must be removed. All permits should be permanently affixed (not temporarily taped) to the front, lower corner of the passenger windshield. Vehicles without permits may be towed, ticketed, or booted at the student’s expense.

STEP 4: ALWAYS PARK IN THE CORRECT AREA

Student Parking Lots

Students must park in their designated parking area and are NOT allowed to park anywhere outside of their designated area.

Students who purchased Standard Senior permits, and “M” permits must park in the south lot across from Towne Lake along Graves Street and Wilson Creek Parkway in the front of the school. Do not park in a painted, Senior Reserved parking space unless you purchased that space.

Note: During the first semester, student parking will primarily be limited to the south lot. The east lot by the natatorium and football field will open to all students at the beginning of the second semester.

Staff Parking Lots

Do not park in staff parking between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The north parking lots by the softball field and tennis courts are reserved for staff and buses only. The parking lot on the southwest side of campus off of Graves Street is also reserved for staff parking.

STEP 5: FOLLOW THE RULES TO AVOID CONSEQUENCES

Students who violate these parking procedures, park in an unauthorized location, or park without a permit will receive the following consequences:

  • First violation:             Written warning
  • Second violation:        Final warning, orange sticker placed on vehicle
  • Third violation:            Vehicle booted, referral to assistant principal’s office

If a student’s vehicle receives a boot, the student will pay a $25 removal fee and be required to purchase a parking permit if he/she has not already done so. Multiple violations may result in losing the privilege of parking on campus and denial of purchasing a parking permit in the future.

OTHER PARKING MATTERS

Replacement permits. A replacement decal, except for those that are lost or stolen, will cost $10. A portion of the old decal MUST be presented at the time of purchasing a replacement, therefore payments may be paid in person with cash or check. A replacement decal for a lost or stolen decal is only replaced at full cost to the student.

Temporary permits. Students who were issued a parking permit, but are temporarily driving a different vehicle, may receive a temporary parking decal issued from F201. Students must present their driver’s license to receive a temporary decal. Loss or abuse of a temporary permit will result in a $10.00 fee.

Payment plans or paying in person. If a student needs to set up a payment plan or pay in person, please contact F201 and ask for Mrs. Coffman for further assistance.

Drop-off and pick-up. All students who are dropped-off and/or picked-up from school must do so in FRONT of the school. For safety reasons, students will not be allowed to be picked-up or dropped-off in the north, east, or southwest parking lots of the school.
