Parking Information – Please Read!

The school lot will only be available to vehicles displaying a valid Handicap sticker/hang tag on this day! Due to very limited parking in the area, we encourage all visitors to be dropped off at the school between 8:15 AM & 8:30 AM and picked up at noon.

We have some parking spaces available four blocks south of SJMS at St. John the Baptist Church parking lot. The parking lot is located on the southwest corner of Hamlet St. and E. Lincoln St., just west of the church. Look for the SJMS sign. Please do not park in the spaces marked as reserved. We have some parking spaces available at The White Castle Parking garage four blocks west of SJMS. The garage is located on the corner of W. 2nd St. and High St. Parking will cost $10 for 4 hours and $12 for 5 hours.

A shuttle will transport visitors from St. John the Baptist church and White Castle garage to SJMS beginning at 8:00 AM, and will reverse its route between 10:30 AM and noon to return visitors to their cars. There will be a sign identifying the shuttle pick-up location at the church parking lot and the garage.

If you have to park on the street, please be aware of the new parking procedures in the area that require you to download the Park Columbus App. There is a 3-hour parking limit in the SJMS zone. Contact the school office at (614) 291-8601 if you have any questions.
