Student Parking Registration


To increase our efforts in ensuring the safety of our campus, we began issuing student parking permits at the ASB Finance windows (the ones that face the main office).

In order to get a parking permit, you will need to fill out the following registration form: Parking Permit Registration
(You must sign in with your Student Google Account)

After the form is completely filled out, you may come to the Finance windows and show your Valid Driver License. You will then be issued a parking permit that must be hung on your rear view mirror anytime you park on campus.

After a two week grace period, any car parked in student parking lots without a student parking permit will be subject to be being towed at the owner’s expense.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Thank you,

Mr. Tapia
Asst. Principal
