Student Parking

Beginning Monday, August 1st, students will be able to purchase their parking permit via the TMHS website linked HERE. Special attention must be made to all of the parking guidelines and required documents in order to secure their parking permit. Only students who have purchased a permit are allowed to park on campus.


All students will have the opportunity to purchase a non-reserved permit for $37 with the completion of all required documents. These documents can be turned in during Wildcat Camp on August 4th, in the TMHS front office from August 9 - 12 (from 8:00 - 3:00), or in the TMHS front office during the first week of school. Permits can continue to be purchased throughout the school year based on availability.


Seniors only have the opportunity to purchase a reserved, painted parking permit for $100. The senior reserved spaces will be selected upon turning in all required documentation (not including artwork design) and must follow all guidelines listed HERE. In addition, the senior reserved spaces are limited to specific areas in both the Athletics and Fine Arts Parking lots. There are a limited number of reserved spaces available. Click THIS LINK for specific maps that indicate where senior painted spots are located in each parking lot. Students will not be allowed to paint spaced until final approval of design has been given. Documentation will be accepted during Wildcat Camp on August 4th, in the TMHS front office from August 9 - 12 (from 8:00 - 3:00), or in the TMHS front office during the first week of school.


Parking space painting dates are TBD.
