Parking on campus requires a current parking sticker. Students with a valid driver’s license, car registration and proof of insurance may register for a Student Parking Permit using this link. For any questions regarding student parking please refer to the Parking Info & FAQ's or email Ms. Angel Bugarini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Driving and parking a motor vehicle on the campus of Menlo- Atherton High School is a privilege granted by the Board of Trustees. In order to obtain campus parking privileges a student must follow the regulations of the California Vehicle Code and Menlo-Atherton High School.
What do I need in order to be eligible for a parking permit?
You will need a copy/picture of your:
1). Driver's license (learner's permits are not acceptable)
If I purchased a parking permit last year, do I need to purchase one this year?
Parking permits are only valid for the current academic school year. A new parking permit must be purchased at the beginning of every school year.
How much is a parking permit?
Parking permits cost $65, or $50 if you purchase a $30 PAL sticker.
We accept cash, card or check. Checks should be made out to "M-A Parking" and should include your student ID number in the "memo" section.
Where can I make payment?
Payment can be made at the treasurer’s office with Ms. Elena Villafuerte or in the AVP Office with Ms. Angel Bugarini.
*You will need to fill out the Student Parking Permit registration form and submit all required documents prior to making payment. *
Do I need to bring my car?
Yes. The registered vehicle MUST be present in order to have the parking permit applied.
What happens if I don’t get a parking permit?
Students will have until spaces fill up or Friday, September 30th, (whichever comes first) to purchase and have their permits applied to their car. It is a $65 fine if you park on campus without a permit. If the fine is not paid within one week then the fine will increase to $75. *SENIORS* - not paying your fines will affect your senior clearance and may delay you from receiving your diploma.
*After September 30th, students will be ticketed and responsible for paying their fine(s).*
When is the last day to purchase a parking permit?
Parking permit registration will close on September 30, 2022, or once all spaces are filled, whichever comes first.
How do I know if parking spaces are still available?
If the Student Parking Permit registration link is still open, then there are spaces still available.
Where can I park?
Students with a Student Parking Permit may park in the Senior lot (parking lot closest to Ringwood/Middlefield and the PAC). If the Senior lot is full, students may park in the T-lot (Gym Lot, closest to the gyms and baseball field). Students may NOT park in the Staff Lot (parking lot closest to Oak Grove) or in Staff parking spaces (located at the front of the school and labeled STAFF/ADMIN).
What happens if I park in a parking space designated for Staff?
Students will receive a parking violation ticket for $65. Students will have one week to pay their fine. If the fine is not paid within one week then the fine will increase to $75. *SENIORS* - not paying your fines will affect your senior clearance and may delay you from receiving your diploma.
What if there are no parking spaces available in the Senior Lot?
In the event that the Senior Parking Lot and the T-lot are full, please see Ms. Angel Bugarini in the AVP Office. Temporarily park in front of the Administration building, along the student drop-off, and parking arrangements will be made. Failure to do so will result in a parking citation.
Am I allowed to go to my car during lunch?
Parking lots CANNOT be visited at any time during the school day. If a student needs to leave campus for any reason, a pass must be obtained by the health office, attendance office, or the AVP office.
** PLEASE REMEMBER TO FOLLOW SAFE DRIVING PRACTICES AT ALL TIMES! FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH SCHOOL CODE AND REGULATIONS WILL RESULT IN A PARKING TICKET AND COULD RESULT IN THE TOWING OF YOUR VEHICLE AND/OR HAVING YOUR PARKING PRIVILEGES REVOKED.
