Waukee High School is experiencing an increased demand for student parking. Students are permitted to park on school premises as a matter of privilege, NOT as a right.
All motorized vehicles parked by students on campus must be registered and pay a $25 registration fee. Only licensed senior and junior students will have parking privileges at Waukee High School at the start of the year.
All vehicles will be parked within stall markers (lines). You must have a line on BOTH sides of your car. Parking is not permitted on curbs, bus lanes, fire lanes, visitor parking, staff areas, walkways, sidewalks, medians, on grass, on snow piles (in winter) or at the end of the row. Parking in these areas will result in a fine. The District reserves the right to tow a parked vehicle when it is improperly or illegally parked and poses a traffic hazard or an obstruction to the normal movement of traffic or is in violation of said regulations without prior notification at the subject’s expense.
Parking in a visitor spot or staff spot is not allowed and a $25 fine will be assessed. Responsibility for finding an authorized parking space rests with the operator. Lack of space in a certain area is not considered a valid excuse for violation of these regulations.
Violation of any regulations will be subject to the following fines:
- Failure to properly display a current permit on a vehicle driven on campus…..$25.00
- Driving and/or parking in unauthorized area …….$25.00
- Illegal parking in a handicapped parking space $100.00
Upon receipt of a fine for parking or traffic violation, the violator will pay the designated fine in the Principal’s Office.
Vehicle operators that have more than 3 violations in one school year will lose parking privileges and the vehicle may be removed from the campus at the vehicle operator’s expense. After the third violation a certified letter will be mailed with notification of loss of parking privileges and future removal of the vehicle at the operator’s expense. Removal of the vehicle may occur every time the vehicle is driven or parked on campus thereafter.
Waukee High School has the authority to deny future use of Waukee High School parking facilities to habitual parking violators. The registered holder of a parking permit regardless of who drives or parks the vehicle is at all times responsible for that motor vehicle. Other limitations may be established by the school.
Parking Permit Instructions
The permit must be used with only the registered vehicle. Parking permits may not be transferred from student to student without authorization from the principal’s office. Any transfer of a parking permit to another vehicle or person will lead to a loss of parking privileges. Revocation will carry over to the following school year, if necessary. The school reserves the right to issue all permits.
If a vehicle is sold, wrecked, or otherwise removed from service, please report the change of vehicle to the office. A new registration form will need to be completed upon presentation of the vehicles registration information.
If you must drive a car other than the registered vehicle, you must report the car you are driving to the Principal’s Office upon your arrival. Failure to report this information could result in a parking violation, fine, or other penalty. NO PHONE CALLS. You must report in person with the car registration information of the car you are driving.
