SHS Parking Permits on Sale Now!

All juniors and seniors who are already licensed drivers are eligible to apply and obtain a Solon High School parking permit by registering online beginning August 5.

Please note: Students who have not yet received their license may not purchase or apply for a permit until they have their license. Permits WILL NOT be held or reserved for any students. Permits will only be sold and issued to the registered student (No friends or family members may pick up the permit for them). Please be sure to the follow the instructions and deadline for the new educational requirement on Ohio’s Graduated Driving License law for all students purchasing a parking permit outlined later in this message.

To apply for a 2019-20 parking permit, students should go to the Solon High School page on the district web site at www.solonschools.org and look for 2019-20 SHS Parking Passes under the “Quick Links” section on the right side of the page.  Click on “Parking Permit Application Website” and follow the step-by-step instructions.

Then, to pay for the permit, please log into your EZpay account (when you complete the registration form, you will be automatically directed to the EZpay site). You will find the Parking Permit purchase option under the Activity Fees link. If you do not have an EZpay account, you may register your child on the EZpay site at this time.  

 

All past due fees and fines must be paid before registering on line. 

TO PURCHASE YOUR PARKING PERMIT IN EZPAY:

 Click on the Activity Fees link.

  1. Click on the Parking Permit option.
  2. Select which student is purchasing the permit. If junior and senior students in the same family are purchasing permits for two family cars, this can be accomplished with one transaction. Be sure that both students complete the online registration form.
  3. Add the permits to the payment basket.
  4. Proceed to check out.
  5. Pay for the permits by credit card using the EZpay system (the preferred method of payment for parking permits). However, if a family decides that they want to pay in person, the student may do so when he or she comes to pick up the permit in August. The cost is $25 and may be paid in cash or by check made out to Solon Board of Education.
  6. Print EZpay receipt (must show your name and that payment was made for a parking permit).

You may also add money to students’ lunch accounts during this same transaction. Simply click on Return to Payment Center prior to completing the transaction and add the amount of lunch money you wish add. Then, select the Click to Checkout option with the shopping cart icon on the right of the screen. You will have the opportunity to review your transaction. If all information is correct, click on Quick Checkout and complete the transaction.  

All SENIORS must provide the required immunization documentation before picking up their parking permit. 

→ NEW THIS YEAR: All drivers must also complete an educational module on Ohio’s Graduated Driving License Law to receive a Solon High School parking permit. We encourage parents and students to watch the module and take the quiz together to improve understanding of the GDL law, increase understanding of the risks of teen driving and protect teen drivers and passengers. The module outlines elements of Ohio’s Graduated Driving License, including: Passenger Limits, Night-Time Driving, Mandatory Seat Belt Use and No Electronic Devices.

The module takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The school will receive confirmation that students have completed module after they take the online quiz and sign and submit the safe driving pledge at the end of the module.

IMPORTANT: Students must complete the GDL educational module by midnight Sunday, August 11, to receive their parking permit prior to the start of school. Students who do not complete the module by Sunday night will not be able to park at school or pick up their parking permit until the first day of school, August 21.  

To access the GDL module, use the following link:

CLICK HERE TO TAKE THE REQUIRED OHIO GDL MODULE

  • Use a computer or Chromebook (not a phone or iPad) to complete the module.
  • Click on the white forward arrow to begin the module.
  • Use the gold forward arrow in the bottom right of your screen to advance through each section.
  • Complete all questions on the quiz.
  • Enter student first name, last name, Solon Schools email address and zip code on the Safe Driving Pledge page at the conclusion of the module.

PARKING PERMIT PICK UP: Parking permits may be picked up outside the commons (door 11) the week before school begins (you must register online prior to coming in to pick up your permit):

  • Seniors: Tuesday, August 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Juniors: Wednesday, August 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Students who are unable to pick up permits at this time can pick them up at the main office on Monday, August 19, or Tuesday, August 20, from noon to 3 p.m.

Students will need to show their license, proof of insurance, vehicle registration and printed EZpay receipt to pick up their permit. The EZpay receipt must show the student’s name and that payment was made for a parking permit (Checks or cash will also be accepted). Expired or outdated documents are not accepted.

Please remember that parking on campus is a privilege, not a right. The student responsibilities related to parking at SHS are attached. These are the same rules that are detailed in the student handbook.

Thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Frazier at 349-7259 or by email at joshuafrazier@solonboe.org.
