3. If a student who is issued a pass is tardy 6 times, their pass may be revoked for the remainder of that season. Students will only be eligible to reapply for a new parking pass the next season at the discretion of the principal. Students who surpass 9 tardies for the year will lose their parking privileges for the remainder of the year. In addition, students who have accumulated 6 or more unexcused absences will also lose their parking privileges for the remainder of the year.
4. Students who are required to drive for medical reasons, or that may need a handicapped parking space must secure a pass from the attendance secretary. A handicapped parking pass will be issued. These students will use the school lot and park in the space assigned by the attendance secretary.
5. A security guard will check passes in the student lots each morning. Only students with valid parking passes are permitted to enter the lots. Students who do not have a valid parking pass will be subject to disciplinary action.
6. Students who park on school property without permission will be subject to progressive disciplinary action, can have emergency parking fees attached to their diploma, or in extreme circumstances, could have their vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.
7. Students must park in a parking space within the student parking lots. Students who park in the grass or along the curb are subject to disciplinary action.
8. ALL TRAFFIC LAWS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.​ Students who do not obey the traffic laws will be reported by security to the principal. Disciplinary action ​will be taken​ as well as the student’s parent being notified.
9. Normal student flow of traffic entering and exiting school property is via the school entrance that is closest to the cafeteria side of the building. This is necessary so as not to impede the flow of the school bus traffic.
10. If a student’s parking privileges are revoked, there will be no refund for the amount paid for the pass.
11. Vehicle Searches​ – ​Because vehicles in school parking areas are on school property (please refer to
page 31, “Definition of Terms”, “School Property”), they are subject to the same nature of searches as those applying to a person. Search of a student’s vehicle shall be permitted only when there is a reasonable belief that said student has in his or her vehicle items either in violation of federal, state, or local laws or in violation of school board policy. A search shall be conducted by a designated school official in the presence of another member of the school staff. Any illegal materials discovered as a result of a search may be used as evidence against the student in disciplinary, juvenile, or criminal proceedings.
12. The number of parking passes issued for each season is limited by the parking spaces available on the high school campus. Due to the limited number of spaces, no student can be guaranteed a pass. Students are encouraged to submit their applications in a timely manner according to the application procedures determined by administration. Students will be given the opportunity to apply for passes according to seniority.
