Linn-Mar High School Parking Tag Lottery FAQ…
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 and often parking illegally. This caused significant issues with access to 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 the Dean’s Office. Tags will be distributed between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each day starting on Wednesday, August 9.
10th Grade students may bring in their school permit and lottery form to the Dean’s Office starting August 9.
All parking forms must 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 Parking Lottery?

I just moved here after the lottery, and all 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?
If all vehicles are registered to the student, the tag may be moved to any of those vehicles. Please keep in mind the tag
must always be displayed during the school day for whichever registered vehicle you are driving.
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 8:45 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 in the LRC/Compass parking lot, apartments nearby, or business parking lots. Any students who park in LMHS Visitor Parking or LRC 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 if everyone who has a parking tag can do so?
No, you must have a 2023-2024 parking tag to park on the LMHS campus. Open spots will be re-assessed during the year and additional parking tags may become available. We do expect to lose a few parking spaces in late spring due to construction on the west side of campus. This will mean fewer additional parking tags will be issued after the lottery.
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.
What are the hours that the parking tags will be enforced each day?
8:45 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.
We now have more parking spaces on campus with the addition of the lot at 10th St. and Tower Terrace Road. Does this mean there is no longer a need for a 10th Grade Parking Lottery?
No. While the new lot will allow a significant number of 10th Grade students to park on campus it will not allow for all 10th Grade students to park on campus. Thus, the need to continue the 10th Grade Parking Lottery.
Why do we have a need 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 10th Grade Parking Lottery list/waitlist once the school permit or driver’s license is obtained.
