Linn-Mar High School On-Campus Student Parking Tag FAQs…
Why is there a limit to the number of parking tags distributed?
For safety reasons, the number of students searching for a parking spot must be limited. As the number of requests has increased, up to 1600 or more student drivers were searching for a spot within about 900 spaces, oftentimes parking illegally. This caused significant issues for access of emergency vehicles.
How do I register my vehicle for a parking tag?
12th and 11th Grade students need to pay the Cashier $25.00 and bring their receipt and completed parking form to Mrs. Sturenfeldt in the Deans Office (North). Parking Tags will be distributed from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. each day 10th Grade students may bring in their completed parking lottery forms starting Monday, August 9, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Deans Office (North). All forms need to be signed by both the student and a parent/guardian.
What information do I need to register my vehicle?
You will need your correct vehicle and license plate information (for any vehicle you may drive to school), as well as your school permit or driver’s license number to register a vehicle. A learner’s permit is not a valid license for the parking lottery.
When do I have to register my vehicle, so it is in the 10th Grade student parking tag lottery?
The last day to enter the 10th Grade student parking tag lottery is at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, August 13, 2021. After this time, students may still submit their vehicle information to be added to the waitlist at any point during the year.
Additional 10th Grade student parking tags will be issued as spaces become available.
When will the 10th Grade student parking tag lottery be held?
The 10th Grade student parking tag lottery will take place in the morning on Tuesday, August 17th. The list of 10th-grade student parking tag lottery winners will be posted online after 1:00 p.m.
How will the 10th Grade student parking tag lottery be conducted so that it is fair to everyone who is registered?
Names and information will be entered into a spreadsheet. The information will be randomly sorted and a number will be assigned to each student who enters the lottery. A Student Council member will be present as a witness.
If I win a parking tag, where do I pick it up and when do I pay?
Pay $25.00 to the Cashier at the high school by door #13 and take your receipt to Mrs. Sturenfeldt in the Deans Office (North) to receive your tag. You may purchase your tag as soon as results are posted. Tags will be distributed between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each day. Students must purchase parking tags prior to parking on the lot on Tuesday, August 24th
When will parking tag enforcement really begin?
Tag enforcement will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 24th.
I just moved here after the lottery, and all of the parking tags have been issued, what do I do?
You may still register to park on campus. As tags become available, you may have the opportunity to purchase one.
What if I have multiple vehicles that I might drive on different days?
As long as all vehicles are registered to the student, the parking tag may be moved to any of those vehicles. The parking tag must be displayed at all times during the school day.
If I come to early practice, rehearsal or a meeting, when do I have to be off of the lot if I do not have a parking tag?
Students without tags may park in lot in the morning prior to school. Vehicles must be out of the lot by 8:45 a.m.
Where do I park if I do not have a parking tag?
Street parking is available west of the high school on 9th, 8th, & 7th, etc Streets. Students are not allowed to park on the LRC/Compass parking lot, apartments nearby, or business parking lots. Any students who park in LMHS ‘visitor’ parking will receive a parking fine violation of $25.00.
What if the lot has a lot of open spaces? Can I park on campus as long as everyone who has a parking tag can do so?
No, you must have a 2021-2022 parking tag to park on the LMHS campus. Open spots will be re-assessed during the year and additional parking tags may become available.
What if I park on campus anyway, without a parking tag?
Students will incur a $25 fine for each violation, possible removal/towing of vehicle from campus, and loss of ‘Good Standing’ status for any unpaid fines.
What are the hours that the parking tags will be enforced each day?
9:00am – 3:45pm
What if I have a parking tag, but all of the spaces in my assigned parking lot are full?
This should not happen, as the number of tags issued is equal to the number of spots in each lot. If this should occur, however, please legally park your vehicle and report immediately to the Deans Office (North). Students may only park in their designated grade level parking lot.
Why the charge for a parking tag?
To improve parking lot safety, emergency vehicle access, and orderly student parking, the number of parking tags must be limited to only the number of spots available. To ensure equity and enforceability, a fee was determined.
Can I sign up for the parking lottery if I do not have a school permit or driver license?
No. You can be added to the lottery list/waitlist once the school permit or driver license is obtained.
Do moped & motorcycles need parking tags?
If they intend to park in the North or South lot, they do not need a parking tag. We hope to have limited special spaces for moped/motorcycle parking designated near the South parking lot that will be provided for free. More information will be provided on those spots once established. There will also be bike racks provided by door 3.
Please keep in mind, there are extra responsibilities for students that come with parking privileges.
Parking violations cost $25.00. Linn-Mar parking tags are not transferable or refundable.
