Parking On Campus

On Campus/LDS Parking Permits have been assigned to all of those who applied in the spring.


JJ Elske will reach out to students on the waitlist when/if spots become available.


Because of the large enrollment of the senior class, parking is not offered to juniors this year.


If a student does not have a parking permit to park in one of the lots:



EVERY numbered spot is a reserved staff/student spot from 7:15am to 3:30pm. If you do not have a parking permit please:


Get to campus early to park on the street in front of the school


Get to campus early and park at Hazelia and walk 10 min to campus


Get to campus early and park respectfully on side streets 10 feet AWAY

from driveways, crosswalks, mailboxes and fire hydrants and plan to walk 10 minutes to campus only in neighborhoods where parking is permitted. Cloverleaf is a NO parking zone!


There is no parking in the LDS church lot without a permit.

On Campus parking spaces MAY look open but students have late arrival, cadet teaching, work and come to school at different times during the day. Do NOT park in an on campus spot if it has not been assigned to you.


Parking tickets will be given to students who do not abide by school rules regarding parking.

What is the PSAT test?

The PSAT/NMSQT - Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in the United States. It is a good practice test for the SAT. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) measures what you're learning in school, determines if you're on track, and opens doors for opportunities to prepare and pay for college.


The PSAT/NMSQT has three tests: the Reading Test, the Writing and Language Test, and the Math Test. Test length is about 2 hours 45 minutes.

Practice for the PSAT/NMSQT

Reporting An Incident

Parents-guardians who have concerns about a student’s well-being are encouraged to reach out to their principal, and to maintain strong lines of communication and partnership between students, families, staff, and other resources. SafeOregon is also an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools. Students should also be aware that intentionally providing a false report is a serious offense. https://www.safeoregon.com/
