Parking Info 22-23

Dear Legend Families: 

The purpose of this letter is to inform parents and students about the upcoming parking permit process for the 2022-23 school year. 

LHS has 672 spaces designated for students.  We issue approximately 750-775 permits to try and accommodate as many students as possible. We often hear that there are many open spaces throughout the day.  Although this is sometimes true because of off periods and absences, we have instances (during period 2, 3 and 4 in particular), when there are not spaces available and students park illegally on end caps.  This causes a safety concern for our student drivers and blocks access to our fire lanes. Thus, we must be intentional about the number of permits we issue, dictating the following numbers:

Parking Permit Availability (click name for map of each lot):

  White Lot (southeast of school, upper part of lot near football field) -   47 spaces, 60 permits

  Orange Lot (north side of school, east side of entrance road) - 214 spaces, 245 permits

  Please note: Due to band practice, students parking in the Orange Lot must move their car each day after school by 3:20pm, through November 19th.  They can move to the Blue Lot after their lunch or after school if they are staying for activities.)

  Blue Lot (north side of school, west side of entrance road) - 363 spaces, 400 permits

  Gold (Tallman Park) Lot (3 rows closest to the school) - 48 spaces, 50 permits

Due to our current enrollment for the 2022-23 school year, we will only allow Seniors and Juniors the opportunity to purchase a permit. There will be NO parking permits issued to Sophomores. We will start a Sophomore waitlist for the spring semester (2023) after monitoring the numbers during the Fall semester (2022).  Also, students CANNOT purchase a permit unless they have obtained their driver’s license.  Once they have their license, they can check MySchoolBucks to see if permits are available. 

We will NOT be sending out an email with a link to purchase this summer.  MySchoolBucks will be open on the dates listed below to purchase. 

Purchasing Schedule: 

We believe in honoring our seniors and they will have the first opportunity to purchase a permit.  MySchoolBucks will be open:

  July 18th - SENIORS ONLY (Link will be available at 9:00am)

  July 25th - Juniors and Seniors (Link will be available at 9:00am)

Parking Permit Purchase Process:

  All student parking contracts and permits will be completed and purchased through MySchoolBucks.

  In order to successfully complete the contract, the student/parent must know the student’s driver’s license number, license plate number, and make/model/year/color of vehicle the student will be driving to LHS. If any of the information is not known at this point (except driver’s license number), please enter “TBD” and update with Security once known.

  If a student purchases a permit without a license, they will not be able to pick up the permit and the fee will be refunded.

  After completing the contract, you will be able to go to the payment page.  The cost of a permit is $50. Once purchased, the permit is reserved for that student.

  If you have difficulty with MySchoolBucks, please call 303-387-4535 - LHS Finance. 

  If all of the permits are purchased, a waitlist will be created under the Gold Lot. 

Information on distribution of parking passes and a link to purchase will be provided in July.  

We truly appreciate your support and understanding with the parking permit situation and process.  We have approximately 1500 students who are of the age to drive and unfortunately, we cannot accommodate that number.  Once the school year gets underway, we always evaluate the number of available spaces during each class period and will offer more spaces if we are able.  Sometimes, it depends on the number of students who are off each period as to whether there are more spaces and we won’t know that until schedules are final and changes are complete after the first two weeks of school.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records by email to [email protected]
