Driving and Parking in Parking Lots
All vehicles parked on the school grounds must be registered with the school (no exceptions) and the Manzano High School (MHS) parking tag must be placed on the rear-view mirror of the vehicle.
The cost for the initial purchase of the parking tag is $30 (non-refundable). Replacement cost for lost or stolen tags will be $30.
Everyone must provide a valid drivers' license, current proof of insurance and state vehicle registration in order to register vehicles. Once vehicles have been registered, the parking tag may be used in any vehicle that is registered to the purchaser.
NEITHER MHS NOR APS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE OR ITS CONTENTS.
