Here is the link to register your car

After the form is submitted, students should stop in at the Main Office to pick up a parking pass. 

If your car is damaged on campus, this is the best way for us to be able to contact you right away.  Students should park in the student parking lot off Meridian and 135th Ave.  Please do not park in the smaller parking lot near the auditorium and upper gym, or the lot near the tennis courts.  Those areas are reserved for Staff, Visitors, and district vehicle parking.

Please stop in at the Main Office if you have any questions.  Thanks!
