Seniors are eligible to purchase a parking permit for the FALL 2022 term, starting on Arena Day.
Please complete the Student Parking Application and bring the following to our Student Accounts office (before or after school OR during lunch) before August 12, 2022:
- Current driver’s license
- Vista Student ID
- $10 cash or check payable to VdLHS
All debts must be cleared before students will be able to purchase a permit. Students who do not claim their permit by the deadline will be moved to the bottom of the waitlist.
Juniors are eligible to enter the parking lottery for 1 term only (fall or spring). Parking is very limited but we will do our best to accommodate preferred terms. Please be mindful of your extracurricular activities when making your preferred term selection.
Juniors may enter the lottery for either term by completing this form before 4:00 pm, Friday, August 12th. Families will be notified of lottery results by email and fall permits will be distributed to students the week of August 15th.
Please remember that vehicles parked in the student lot without a permit will be cited. Permitted vehicles parked in non-student areas will also be cited and the permit may be revoked. Speeding or reckless driving on campus will result in revocation of permit.
Transportation and Parking Alternatives for Students:
Carpool Options and the New Laws:
While current laws place restrictions on minors transporting other minors, there are exceptions. California Vehicle Code allows exceptions when related to schooling or a school-authorized activity and the other minor transported is an immediate family member/sibling. Please visit the DMV website for more details.
It is the mission of the FCUSD Transportation Services Department to provide for students, staff and community of the Folsom Cordova Unified School District the safest and most reliable means of transportation. Routes and time schedules are posted on the Transportation website at: www.fcusd.org/transportation.
Parking is now restricted in some areas around the school. For those community spaces that are not restricted, we highly recommend that students park at this location appropriately and be good citizens by driving slowly, keeping the noise down, and not littering. While there are two-hour time limit parking zones on many nearby residential streets, special events or games that fall outside of the school day (7 a.m. to 4 p.m.) window are not subject to the two-hour time limit.
Walking and Biking:
Vista encourages students to lead healthy lifestyles that include walking and biking. There are two bike racks for Vista students, one near the Wrestling Room and one near the Library. Students need to bring their own bike locks. Vista is also considering installing a skateboard lock rack, should there be enough interest.
We understand the challenges our parking situation poses to students and families. We are grateful for your patience and partnership.
