CURRENT PARKING INFORMATION
MVHS Parking Permit Registration for 2019-20 (Juniors & Seniors Only)
Parking permits for the 2019-2020 school year can be purchased during the summer online Check-In window. The parking permit application will be completed electronically online as part of the Check-In process. The time frame will be the same window as online Check-In from July 18th to August 1st. A link will be provided in the Check-In steps to complete the application, provide vehicle information and a current driver’s license number. Students cannot be issued a parking permit without a current valid driver’s license. *Completing the application and paying for a permit does not guarantee the student a parking permit. Senior students will be given priority during the permit distribution in August. The amount of available permits for juniors will be dependent on senior distribution. If junior permits purchased during registration exceeds the available permits (based on senior demand) those junior students will be placed on a waiting list. All additional juniors and seniors who plan to get their valid driver’s license after August 6th can add their name to the waiting list. Refunds will be issued for those who are not issued a permit at the start of the school year.
Thank you for your understanding with the student parking challenges at Mountain Vista. Families have individual situations and needs regarding parking, but know we have to follow a determined process. We do our best to create the most spaces possible and distribute permits in a fair and equitable manner.
