Dear Class of 2021,

Unfortunately, we will not be painting parking spots this year. As a committee, we’re very saddened by this decision but given the years unprecedented circumstances, we won’t be painting. Refunds are available upon request OR, you may choose to donate your money towards graduation festivities. Please read below for more details.

If you’d like a refund for your Senior parking spot, it must be requested by February 26th. If you don’t request a refund, your Senior parking spot money will go towards celebrating our Seniors! Due to Covid-19, our Seniors have lost their usual opportunities to raise funds for graduation festivities. The Grad Night committee is working hard to find ways to celebrate our Seniors but will need funds to do so. While we don’t yet know what will be allowed in June, we do know that just celebrating our Seniors with lawn signs and a drive by cap and gown pickup would cost around $9,000. Please consider your Senior parking spot money a donation to our Seniors! 

To request a refund, please email Ann Montgomery at by February 26th.

November Parking Update:

Happy Fall, Rio Senior Families,
We are writing to update that we are in talks with Rio administration and the district to move forward with parking spot painting. It is our hope that we will be able to virtually select parking spots in December, with socially distant and Covid responsible painting to occur in January, as kids may be returning to campus.  
The Parking Committee has been in close contact with the Grad Night Committee, which is actively working to brainstorm ideas for our seniors to commemorate their graduation.  The funds we raised from parking spots will be used to celebrate all seniors, however that may look in June.  
Thank you for your support and patience as we continue to navigate this unusual year.  Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Parking Spot Update!

Seniors, we wish we had more to report! Please be patient as we are working with the Rio administration on appropriate timelines for holding the “Paint Your Spot” day. We expect things to look a little different this year – virtual spot selection, multiple paint days, wear a mask, social distancing,  etc… but,  we’re still hopeful we will find a safe and responsible way to continue this tradition. 

Please stay tuned for more information. As decisions are made, we will share further details. 

Thank you!

Senior Parking Spaces – SOLD OUT

Thank you all for supporting the Class of 2021 fundraiser; Safe and Sober Grad Night. ALL the senior parking spaces are SOLD OUT. If you’re still interested, please email Ann Montgomery at to be added to a wait list. THANK YOU!!


Class of 2021 – It’s Your Turn To Have A Parking Space!

There will be two options available for purchase:

Premium Parking Spot: 20 available– $310.00 (includes credit card service fee.)  The 20 premium spot purchasers will choose one by one from any of the available spots in the order of time purchased. We will use the PayPal time stamp to determine order. If payment is brought into the office, it is the student’s responsibility to have their contract time stamped. In other words – – “The Early Bird Gets the Spot.” If you want to guarantee a spot next to a friend, this is the way to go.

Personal Parking Spot: Let’s sell a lot of these (165 available) ! –  $155.00 (includes credit card service fee.) Students will get to pick from a list of available spots AFTER the 20 premium spots are designated. Students will be put in groups of 10 and will come to the tables together to pick their spots. Groups will be formed in the order of time purchased. Time of purchase will be determined by the PayPal time stamp. If payment is brought into the office, it is the student’s responsibility to have their contract time stamped.

A couple important dates to remember: 

Tuesday, August 4 is “Pick Your Spot Day.” Your signed parking contract and space sketch will be due on this day. Typically, this is senior schedule pick-up day. Please be patient with us as figure out how this day will go. The school is still working on their plan. As soon as we know more, we will put together a schedule and let everyone know. If you cannot make it, please designate a friend to choose your spot for you and email that information to Stephanie Dall’era: . Include in the subject line: “Senior Parking Substitute.” You can also pick your spot the morning of August 16, we will have a list of spaces still available.

Sunday, August 16 is “Paint Your Spot Family Day.”   The parking lot will be available for students and their families to paint the student spots from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
