Mr. Brian T. Ginter
Important Student Parking InformationRio Families,I am writing to you to inform you about a small issue we are having with student drivers at school. Obviously, Rio has a large number of students who drive and not all of them are able to find appropriate parking in the school parking lot. If students are unable to find spaces in the school lot, they are to park on the street. Students have been parking in fire lanes on campus where it is blocking traffic. We had a safety inspection of the school by the fire marshal on Wednesday, December 13, 2018 and he informed us they will be checking the school site as part of their normal duties and these cars will either be towed or the officer along for the inspections will be issuing tickets.I want you to be aware so you can have a conversation with your child about parking vehicles in an appropriate parking spot. We have been making annoncements to students about this and will continue to do so. Your help would be appreciated.
