McGill-Toolen Catholic High School

2016 -2017



Dear Students and Parents,

Because parking spaces on campus are very limited, parking decals are issued to Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores only. Students with valid decals can go online to purchase decals prior to orientation. If you do not have availability to the Internet or a computer, there will be computers available in the library on Orientation Day. Students will pick up parking decals in the Library on Orientation Day (August 11). Please form a line outside of the main entrance to the library. The decal pick up will begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue until 3:00 p.m. Arrangements for the pick up of decals after Orientation Day will be announced over the PA system once classes have begun. Decals cannot be picked up on Aug. 17.


In order to purchase a decal and register a vehicle for parking on campus, students will need to have the following items with them at the time of decal purchase (online or at school):

* $50.00 - Cash (correct change), check or money order (payable to McGill-Toolen Catholic H.S.) (Credit card if purchased online)

      * valid driver’s license.

      * vehicle tag receipt with the License Plate Number on the receipt.



Parents/Students who request the privilege of parking a vehicle in McT campus lots assume the duty of registering the vehicle with the school and of parking the vehicle in accordance with school rules and regulations. The school parking decal must be properly displayed on the lower front  corner driver side window and must be clearly visible from outside the vehicle. The purchase of a school parking decal is for vehicle registration purposes only; it does not guarantee the student a parking space on campus. Students are responsible for informing their parents of any fines and/or penalties which they may incur for transgressions of parking regulations and for paying all fines prior to semester exams. It is to be clearly understood that persons who choose to park their vehicles in campus parking lots do so at their own risk. The Catholic Archdiocese of Mobile, McGill-Toolen Catholic High School, and/or any of their employees or agents cannot and will not accept any responsibility or liability for any damage, vandalism, and/or theft, which the vehicle may incur while parked in McT parking lots.


The student parking areas are listed below. A complete copy of all student-parking regulations is contained in the Student Handbook Calendar, which the students will receive on Orientation Day. We hope that you will find this information useful as you begin preparations for registering your vehicle on campus.



Sincerely yours,

John R. Repoll

Asst. Principal for Student Activities
