Student Parking for 2023-24 School Year
Once again there will be a parking lottery to obtain parking permits for this school year. Permits are $140 for the year or $70 per semester. To be registered for the lottery you must have the parking registration forms filled out completely, checked by our security officer, Mr. Kinsley and paid for to the LHS bookkeeper.
The Parking lottery is here! On Friday 8-25-23 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Mr. Kinsley will be set up in the hallway next to the bookkeeper’s window where you can turn in your parking registration forms and pay for the permit to enter the lottery. Mr. Kinsley will also be accepting registration forms for the lottery the first 4 days of school next week when he will be in the commons before school and during lunches. All registration forms must be turned in and permits paid for by the end of 2nd lunch on Friday 9-1-23 to be entered in the lottery. This must be done in person. Mr. Kinsley will not accept any forms that are emailed or sent through regular mail. It doesn’t matter when you register as long as you do it in the time frame given above. In the lottery we take care of the Seniors first, then Juniors and then Sophomores if there are any left.
The lottery will be conducted over the Labor Day weekend. Permits will be available to be picked up from Mr. Kinsley on 9-5-23 and 9-6-23 in the commons before school and during lunches.
NEW THIS YEAR
To participate in the parking lottery you must be up to date on all of your Xello lessons to be able to get into the lottery. Also a reminder that all fines must be paid to get into the lottery as well.
A reminder that students can park only in the WHITE LINED SPACES.
- All students who drive to school must register their vehicles.
- Parking and driving are considered privileges.
- All parking and driving regulations are strictly enforced. Violations may lead to suspension of privileges, fine/ticket, towing of vehicle, school discipline, and/or police notification.
- Vehicles are not to be used for storage during the school day.
- Students who are found in the parking lot, loitering in their vehicles during the school day, or littering are subject to discipline.
- Security cameras are in use.
- Speed limit of 10 mph is strictly enforced.
If students desire parking privileges, they agree not to allow contraband in their automobiles. They agree that their vehicles are subject to search by school officials if the officials develop individualized suspicion that student(s) are or have been violating a law or student conduct rule. Students and their families understand the parking lots will be subject to periodic patrols by drug sniffing dogs at times when the students are not in the vicinity of the dogs. Students agree that if a drug sniffing dog "hits" on their vehicle while it is parked on school premises, school officials will have the authority to search the vehicle. If students refuse to allow searches of vehicles by school officials in such circumstances, students will lose their parking privileges and must understand that the Issaquah School District will presume that the dogs have accurately discovered contra-band in determining whether student disciplinary action is warranted. See Board Regulation #3230 – Student Privacy and Searches.
- Parking is limited to those students who have legally registered cars and driver’s licenses and who have obtained an LHS parking permit.
- Parking permits are obtained by registering the vehicle, parent and student signature agreeing to regulations, and paying a registration fee of $140.00/year or $70.00/semester.
- At the time of registration, each driver is given a full copy of parking rules and regulations. Failure to follow those regulations can result in a fine of $20.00 that must be paid within five school days of receipt.
- Failure to pay parking fines or drivers who receive four or more tickets may be subject to school disciplinary action up to and including loss of parking privileges and towing at vehicle owner’s expense.
- The School District, Liberty High School, or its agents cannot be held liable for damage or loss due to theft or vandalism.
