In order to maintain a safe arrival and departure environment for our students, certain conditions have been put into place for our student drivers. Parking areas are school property, and students are allowed to use them as a matter of privilege, not of right.
The following rules and regulations must be obeyed and observed at all times:
† Students drivers MUST register all vehicles driven to school. Registration forms are available in the school office and on the school website. Failure to register a vehicle with the school will result in having parking privileges revoked.
† Students will park in areas that have been designated for them, exit the vehicle, and report directly to the school building immediately upon arriving to school. Once a student drives on campus, he/she is considered ‘at school’ and must check out legally in the front office to leave campus again.
† Designated parking for student drivers is in the front school parking lot. Vehicles should be parked in front of the curb facing Standridge Road. Any student not parking their vehicle in the designated student parking will have parking privileges revoked.
† Students should not loiter in the parking lot before or after school. All drivers must exit campus by 3:15 p.m. unless involved in a supervised after-school activity.
† Students in the parking lot during the school day without permission will be subject to disciplinary action.
† All students are expected to observe a safe speed at all times, keeping in mind the safety and welfare of others. The speed limit on campus is 10 mph. Reckless driving behavior of any type on campus will result in permanent loss of driving privileges for the year.
† Students must have an overall average of 70 (C-) at each grading period to remain eligible for driving/parking privileges.
† Transporting another student off campus without authorization will result in revocation of parking privileges.
† The school is not responsible for the safety of any vehicle. Therefore, it is recommended that students lock their vehicles.
