Atholton High Student Parking Permit Information

Student parking is offered first to seniors, students in the mentorship/work study program and juniors on a space available basis. 9th and 10th grade students are NOT eligible to receive a parking permit. Parking is considered a privilege, not a right at Atholton High School. Students must also comply with all school rules related to driving and parking on school property in order to retain this privilege. Eligible students who wish to exercise this privilege and obtain a parking permit are required to attend a Safe Driver Seminar hosted by the Howard County Public School System in collaboration with the Howard County Police. Students are not required to have a current or a provisional driver’s license to attend the seminar. Attending the seminar is mandatory in order to qualify to receive a parking permit for the 2018-2019 school year. Both the student and parent/guardian must attend the ENTIRE seminar and obtain the application which will be signed by the administrator at the conclusion of the evening. (Nobody will be admitted once the seminar begins.)

Atholton HS will be required to bring the following items to the Bookkeeper, Ms. McIntyre, to obtain their parking permit:

  • Completed Howard County Public School Parking Permit Application (distributed at the Driving Seminar) with administrator signature verifying attendance.
  • Make, model and license plate number of the vehicle MUST be on the application. The permit will not be issued without this information.
  • A copy of the student’s valid Maryland Driver’s License • A copy of the Atholton High School Parking Regulations signed by both the student and parent/guardian
  • Cash or Check for $15.00 made payable to Atholton High School

Atholton students who have outstanding financial obligations must clear the obligation before they are eligible to receive a parking permit.

Safe Driving Seminars at Atholton High School are scheduled as follows:

  • Tuesday, August 28, 2018 6:30PM Atholton High School Auditorium
  • Thursday, September 13, 2018 6:30PM Atholton High School Auditorium

Students and parent/guardian can also attend any Safe Driver Seminar in Howard County. Please check out the link below to see the other times the seminar is being held: https://news.hcpss.org/news-posts/2018/08/2018-2019-safe-driving-presentations/
