Permit Applications for the 2022-2023 year will open 9 a.m. August 15 through 11:59pm August 24th. Please click here to apply for the Parking Permit Application. Students will receive notification via their school email regarding the status of their application by August 30th.  As a reminder, permits are issued based on our pool process - not on a first come, first served basis. We are unable to prioritize individual permits for students based on schedules, activities, or living out of district. 

Parking Pool Information

For the 2022-2023 school year, we will prioritize permit distribution through a pool process. The process is outlined below.  The cost for the permits is $300. per carpool. Our Carpools are:

  • Pool 1:  4 licensed Junior and/or Senior drivers**
  • Pool 2:  3 licensed Junior and/or Senior drivers**
  • Pool 3:  2 licensed Junior and/or Senior drivers**
  • Pool 4:  Senior Individual (if available)

**New this year-While Licensed Sophomores may be included in a carpool, they do not count toward the licensed drivers for carpool designation.

At MHS, carpooling is the key to success for parking, as we rely on this system to maximize the number of students we can accommodate. Students that make arrangements to carpool are prioritized as we distribute permits. Many of our students are heavily involved in activities at MHS and have unique schedules. We have a limited number of parking spaces and carpooling allows us to optimize the use of our lot. We are unable to prioritize individual permits for students based on schedules, activities, or living out of district.
