New smart start
parking program BRIGID MCCARTHY News Editor
Students who wish to park in one of the students parking lots during the 2012-2013 school year are required to attend one of the smart start programs with a parent. If a student and his/her parent were not able to attend the smart start program held last night in the Poway Center for the Performing Arts there will be two other opportunities to attend the program before the beginning of the school year. There will be a chance to complete the program the week of registration in the following week. The dates for these classes are not conﬁrmed but will be up on the front page of the Poway High School website before the end of the school year.
