Last week, Medford Police conducted a sweep of the school parking lot(s) and issued approximately close to 20 parking tickets with an associated fine of $100. 

We have been informed that such periodic inspections will continue.

While the School Board is considering how to improve the parking congestion, especially in the rotary area, we would like to make sure that all Guardians

are aware of where the available parking spaces are.

Parking: The stopping or standing of a vehicle, whether occupied or not.

1. Parking in the reserved spaces; such as Fire Lane, No Parking and Handicapped Parking, even for a short while, is prohibited. Parking in the Bus Loop is especially unwelcome since it is reserved for emergency vehicles. Medford Police could get you a $100 fine for a parking violation.
2. Please be sure to stop your car along the curb before dropping off your child. It is never safe to drop off or pick up your child in the middle of the road. 
3. Please be sure to hold your child’s hand to the entrance of the school building if your child is not old enough to understand the danger of crossing streets.
4. Please always use crosswalks when crossing streets.
5. Please go slow in parking lots.
6. When Medford High School has events etc., the parking lots tend to be very crowded; please be sure to leave home early enough to be on time.
