Parking Permit Guidelines for the 2021-2022 School Year
The school parking lot is used primarily for the faculty and staff of Oakland Catholic High School.
There are a limited number of parking spots available to the students and parking can not be guaranteed.
Any student who will possess a valid driver’s license or driver's permit may be eligible for an Oakland Catholic parking permit.
Permits will be awarded in the following order:
-Seniors living more than 10 miles from Oakland Catholic and the Public School District in which the student resides does not provide transportation.
-Juniors living more than 10 miles from Oakland Catholic and the Public School District in which the student resides does not provide transportation.
-Seniors living between 2 and 10 miles from Oakland Catholic and the Public School District in which the student resides does not provide transportation.
-Juniors living between 2 and 10 miles from Oakland Catholic and the Public School District in which the student resides does not provide transportation
-Public transportation is not timely.
The intent of the criteria is to allow those students who have no transportation provided by their public school district to attend Oakland Catholic. Transportation is defined as a district school bus or monthly bus pass.
If you qualify for a parking permit based on the above criteria, you must fill out a Parking Permit Application. The completed application must be submitted electronically by July 26, 2021.
- If you receive an OC Parking Permit, you will be notified the week before school starts. At which time a yearly fee of $300.00 will need to be submitted to the School Office. Checks should be made out to "Oakland Catholic High School" with "parking permit" in the memo line.
- If you do not receive an OC Parking Permit, you will also receive notice via email.
Students are expected to abide by the following parking policies:
-Permits must be properly displayed (mounted on driver’s side upper corner of windshield).
-Permits may not be given or shared with another student without permission from the office.
-Students are required to park in their designated spaces.
-Students upon entering the lot must verbally communicate with attendants when they have a planned early dismissal.
-Students are not permitted to go to their vehicles during the school day, unless permitted by the School Office.
-Follow the directives of the parking lot attendants upon entering and exiting.
-For safety purposes, students are not permitted to use their cell phones or have radio on upon entering or exiting the parking lot.
-At dismissal, buses will leave the parking lot first. Student drivers will be directed in order to leave their parking space.
Parking in the lot is a privilege and may be denied if school policies are not followed.
The following are causes for revocation of the parking permit:
-Failure to abide by school policies (see Student/Parent Handbook).
-Violations of the above parking policies.
-Leaving school campus without permission.
-Habitual late arrival and absences (We want the students to be safe therefore we make some allowances for weather and traffic conditions).
-Five unexcused tardies during a semester.
-Being placed on Disciplinary Probation.
NOTE: Students may not park in the school lot without a valid OC parking permit. Vehicles without permits or vehicles that are parked in an unauthorized area will be tagged or towed at the owner’s expense and students will be subject to disciplinary action. Oakland Catholic High School is NOT responsible for damaged vehicles. Students should have insurance information on hand in case of any vehicle accidents.
