Student Parking at MHS


The 2023-24 School Year Parking Permit application process has closed.  We are no longer accepting applications.

Parking Pool Information

For the 2023-2024 school year, we prioritized permit distribution through a pool process. The process is outlined below. The cost for a permit is $300. per carpool.

  • Pool 1: 4 licensed Junior or Senior drivers or a combination of the two*
  • Pool 2: 3 licensed Junior or Senior drivers or a combination of the two*
  • Pool 3: 2 licensed Junior or Senior drivers or a combination of the two*
  • Pool 4: Senior Individual (if available by lottery**) 

*The parking permit process only counted Junior or Senior students with their driver's license as of September 1, 2023 as carpool members for a designated pool. Full-time online students are not eligible for Parking Permits.

**The lottery was a random drawing of individual senior applicants corresponding to the number of available spots. Seniors, who chose to apply individually, were not guaranteed a Parking Permit.

At MHS, carpooling is the key to success for parking, as we rely on this system to maximize the number of students we can accommodate. Students that make arrangements to carpool are prioritized as we distribute permits. Many of our students are heavily involved in activities and have unique schedules. We have a limited number of parking spaces and carpooling allows us to optimize the use of our lot. We are unable to prioritize individual permits for students based on schedules, activities, or living out of district.

Please note: The Parking Permit is for only 1 vehicle on campus at a time.

The School District does provide transportation based on the criteria and information on the district's transportation website:
