Students may park their vehicles in the lot designated Student Parking and located at the northeast end of the parking lot during the school day or during school-related functions being hosted at the school. Vehicles must be parked between the painted lines and must be driven under the speed limit of 10 miles per hour while in the lot. Vehicles should be driven safely and must yield to pedestrians. Vehicles parked outside painted lines or designated parking spots may be ticketed or towed at the discretion of the school, at the vehicle owner’s expense. Students caught driving recklessly in the parking lot may be subject to disciplinary action.
All other lots not marked as “Student Parking” are for school staff, personnel, and others designated by administration. Students MAY NOT use these lots at any time. Student vehicles parked in these lots may be ticketed or towed at the discretion of the administration.
The school is not responsible for student vehicles, any possessions left in them, or anything attached to the vehicles. STUDENTS PARK THEIR VEHICLES ON OR NEAR SCHOOL PROPERTY AT THEIR OWN RISK. Students should be aware their vehicles are not protected in any way while in the parking lot, and items of value should not be left in or near the vehicle while unattended.
The parking of a student’s vehicle on campus is a privilege that is granted by the School Board. All Board parking areas and lockers are the property of the School District. School authorities have the right to inspect any student-parked vehicles and/or lockers in order to protect the health, safety, and welfare of students. Individual student parked vehicles searches will be conducted if school personnel have a reasonable suspicion of a violation of the law or the Code of Student Conduct. This includes the use of drugs and gunpowder sniffing K-9 dogs. Each student who parks a vehicle on a school campus or uses a school locker is presumed to know what is contained in his/her vehicle or locker and will be held accountable for any contraband, weapons, drugs, etc., which may be found in them. Students have no reasonable expectation of privacy in cars parked on school grounds. School lots are regularly searched by contraband dogs, administration, and police officers. Students should be aware that items and spaces on school grounds are subject to search and view by others, and that prohibited items discovered during the course of a search may result in discipline, including, but not limited to, expulsion from school.
Each student must sign the Board’s Student Parking and/or Student Locker Application and Consent to Search and Waiver of Liability form acknowledging and agreeing to the conditions as a prerequisite to, and in consideration for, the issuance of a student parking, and/or a student locker that the locker is school property and may be opened by school authorities at any time without the consent and without the student’s knowledge or presence.
Vehicles MAY NOT be parked or located in the bus lanes or fire lanes at ANY TIME. Bus lanes and fire lanes are clearly marked. Vehicles located in these locations may be ticketed and/or towed by the police.
Video cameras may be active in parking lots and may be used for the purposes of investigation into student misconduct. Discipline for misconduct includes all disciplinary measures in the student discipline code and/or withdrawal of parking privileges.
