  • Temporary permits will be sold on a day-to-day basis.  The cost for the daily permit is $5.00. Temporary permits may be purchased in Room 261. 

  • The Parking Permit Application must be completed online through PARENT PAY ONLINE which can be accessed through the LHS website.  If you opt to pay via check or cash, you must still complete the PARENT PAY ONLINE and choose the ‘Parking Permit Application Only’ (aka ‘zero pay’) option.  This will allow you to complete the required information necessary to complete your parking permit purchase and then pay with cash or check in Room 261.
