Important Information for Student Drivers
Permission for students to drive and park vehicles on school system property is a privilege, not a right. In order to be granted this privilege, students must obtain a student parking permit each school year, which requires students and parents/guardians to annually attend a driver safety session and to pay a $15 fee for the parking permit. Students must also comply with all school rules related to driving and parking on school property in order to retain this privilege.
All students who wish to park on school grounds must attend a Safe Driving Presentation prior to receiving a parking permit. Meetings may be attended at ANY Howard County public school (click here for locations). Students must be accompanied by their parent/legal guardian for the duration of the presentation. Once the presentation has started, late students & parents will not be admitted - NO exceptions. Accordingly, you are advised to arrive before 6:15pm to be signed in before the meeting begins. Parent/guardian must be with the student during the entire presentation.
Safe Driving Presentation dates at OMHS:
Safe Driving presentations will be held at each high school in the county. Students may attend any presentation at any school. If you are attending a presentation at another school, please contact that school in advance to confirm the date and time. Visit the HCPSS website for more information.
