Students MUST BE 16 YEARS OF AGE AND A LICENSED DRIVER in order to purchase a parking space. Students who will turn 16 years of age and obtain their license AFTER JULY 30 will purchase their parking space in the MSHS office as that occurs.

Before students arrive to buy parking on July 30, they need to have this Google form filled out: If they do not have the Google form completed before they arrive, they will have to fill it out on-site and this will slow their process of selecting a parking space.

Also, students may pay the $15 parking fee on-site by cash, check, credit, or debit. To speed up their process, students may NOW pay ONLINE before they arrive by going to BE SURE TO PRINT AND BRING YOUR RECEIPT TO SHOW THAT PAYMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE. YOU MAY ALSO SHOW AN ELECTRONIC COPY OF THE RECEIPT ON YOUR PHONE.


Tuesday, July 30 at 1:30 p.m.

The meeting will begin immediately following the Senior Parking Sale.

Location: MSHS-Stratford Auditorium

Main Topic: COLLEGE!!!!! The Guidance Counselors will be going over lots of information pertaining to college and scholarships. UNA and NWSCC will be on hand for the meeting.

Email Mrs. Garrett at or Mrs. Nelson at if you have questions.
