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, often times parking illegally. This caused significant issues for access of emergency vehicles.
How do I register my vehicle for a parking tag?
Junior and senior students need to pay the cashier $25.00 and bring their receipt and completed parking form to Mrs. Sturenfeldt in the Dean’s Office. Tags will be distributed between 9:00am and 2:00pm each day starting Aug 10th. Sophomore students may bring in their school permit and lottery form to the Dean’s Office starting Tuesday, Aug 9th.All parking 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 parking tag lottery?
The last day to enter the parking lottery is at noon on Monday, Aug 15th, 2022 for sophomore students. After this, students may still submit their vehicle information to be added to the waitlist at any point during the year. Parking tags will be issued as tags become available.
When will the Lottery be held?
The lottery for sophomores will take place on Tuesday, August 16th. The list of 10th grade parking lottery winners will be posted online after 10:00am.
How will the 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 in the lottery, 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 to receive your tag. You may purchase your tag as soon as results are posted. Tags will be distributed between 9:00am and 2:00pm each day in the Dean’s Office. Students must purchase parking tags prior to parking on the lot on Wednesday, August 24th.
When will parking tag enforcement really begin?
Tag enforcement will begin at 9:00am on Wednesday, 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 tag may be moved to any of those vehicles. The 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 the lot if I do not have a parking tag?
Students without tags may park in the lot in the morning prior to school. Vehicles must be out of the lot by 8:45am.
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 visitor parking or staff parking will receive a parking violation of $25.00.
What if the lot has a lot of open spaces? Can’t I park on campus as long as everyone who has a parking tag can do so?
No, you must have a 2022-2023 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 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 & report immediately to the appropriate office. 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’s license?
No. You can be added to the lottery list/waitlist once the school permit or driver’s license is obtained.
