Parking & Traffic Safety

The school district provides bus transportation; which students are encouraged to use. Parking in the school student parking lot is a privilege, not a right. 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. All student-parking on campus is limited to one marked parking space per household, with the exception of multiple senior families. Parking permits may not be re-sold, reprinted, or gifted. The parking permit must be clearly displayed in the windshield; if it is not clearly visible, the car may be ticketed and or towed regardless of its registered status.

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.
