Start Smart: Driving Smart to Stay Safe
In a continued effort to support students and to maintain a safe campus Aptos High School is partnering with the California Highway Patrol Department to offer the Start Smart Program.
Excerpt from the “Start Smart: Driving Smart to Stay Safe” on the California Highway Patrol Department website:
Getting their driver's license opens a new world to young drivers. Suddenly, the possibility of new destinations and experiences with friends are within grasp. But a new driver lacks the experience that is sometimes needed on the road. Situations can appear in a second, sometimes too fast for a new driver to respond to. But, there are ways to avoid dangerous situations. There are ways to keep a new driver - and their passengers - safe on the road.
Although not mandatory, we are asking all students participate in the Start Smart Program if they plan to obtain an AHS parking permit for the 2014-15 School Year.
There are two planned classes in the Performing Arts Center “PAC” for the month of August:
- Tuesday 8/5 – 6:30pm to 8:30pm
- Saturday 8/9 – 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Thank you for your support.

Parking At Aptos High School
As a result of our continued concern for the safety of our students, staff, and community, Aptos High School will continue to implement parking enforcement in an attempt to create safety and equity for all visitors who drive to campus.
- AHS utilizes the services of a private company to enforce the parking tickets here at AHS. When a parking ticket is issued, it is sent to the company who works directly with the DMV.
- The contracted company will monitor the ticket and issue fines for tickets that are not paid in a set amount of time. Should someone decide not to pay the ticket, the violation will be attached to the car registration. Ticket(s) and the late fees accompanying the ticket(s) will need to be paid PRIOR to the car being registered.
We want to thank you in advance for contributing to the creation of a safe school by adhering to the parking rules and regulations of Aptos High School at all times.
