PSHS Personalized Parking Space
Policy, Contract, Design Request Form
The PTSA is offering PSHS students the opportunity to purchase a RESERVED parking space at Plano Senior. Students who wish to purchase a reserved space will be allowed to customize their space to reflect their school spirit and their personality!
HAVE FUN – The purpose of allowing students to paint their own parking spot is aimed at improving school pride and camaraderie. Students can “own” a piece of the school. We encourage students to express themselves through positive artwork. Remember, purchasing a student parking spot is completely optional.
ALL PARKING LOT SALES ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE!!
IN ADDITION TO PURCHASING A RESERVED PARKING SPOT, YOU MUST ALSO PURCHASE A PARKING PERMIT THROUGH THE SCHOOL!! (The school administration will reinforce the usage of the parking permit/pass).
There are a limited number of reserved parking spots available on a first come, first served basis. The cost of a space is $100.00. In the Google application form there will be an opportunity to indicate preferences of lot and section in priority order. Personalized Parking Spots will be yours from the beginning of the school year through graduation during school hours.

- STUDENTS MUST FOLLOW ANY DISTRICT FACEMASK OR SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES WHILE WAITING TO CHECK IN.
- It might be helpful to bring a broom to sweep off your space before you commence painting.
- Realize that some spots are already painted from last year and will require a coat of gray paint, probably a gallon of paint, to cover the spot before starting on your design.
PISD Code of Conduct and all local laws will be enforced regarding the Parking Space personalization process.
- Paint: 1 gallon water based for the background paint and pints for the detail. if you want a completely solid background OR are covering up a dark spot from last year, you may need more than 1 gallon. Don't forget the paint tray and paint can opener and rollers/brushes for each color.
- Paint Roller Extension Pole:This is super important to expedite the process of painting the background color and super helpful, so you don't have to bend down or sit to paint the majority of the spot.
- Water based primer paint/base coat for concrete if desired.
- Apply a Clear Sealant when finished to ensure the paint stays on all year.
- Paint pans or plastic containers for water, paint and brushes. Plastic drop cloth to put under paint cans or extra trash bags.
- Chalk: Use chalk to draw out your design and trace the writing which is great since it will wash off. You could also create stencils or freehand your design.
- Paint Brushes and Rollers: Make sure you get a lot of paint brushes and rollers and to have at least one for each color that will be used. A paint roller for the background and the paint brushes for all the details.
- Painters Tape: Use the painters’ tape to outline the spot with a 6" border from the white lines. You could also use painters’ tape to outline your design but keep in mind that it doesn't stick on that well to the ground. REMOVE any tape when done.
- Hula hoop (optional):A hula hoop is a great tool to use if you are having any sort of larger circle incorporated into your design.
- Broom or Leaf Blower: It's important to clean off your spot before you even start painting it. Use a broom to get all the leaves, dirt, and pine straw off your spot (if needed).
- Cloths or paper towels: Painting is messy so make sure you have something to wipe your hands on like an old cloth or paper towels, baby wipes.
- Towel:It's not too comfy sitting on the ground for long periods of time so bring a towel to sit on. Texas pavement will be HOT, so towels to sit on will be important to have.
- Trash bags for your trash
- Sunshade, Sunscreen, umbrellas, sunglasses, hats
- Water, snacks
- Lawn chairs, stool, towel to sit on
