Parking passes will be available starting Monday, August 22nd

Congratulations, you are now eligible to receive a parking pass to park on Westhill High School grounds. Westhill High School is committed to maintaining a policy of safety and respect regarding transportation and parking.  Students will be expected to abide by all state, county, city, school traffic laws, and regulations at all times.  The following guidelines have been established to promote this policy.  Please read this carefully before you obtain a parking sticker.  Parking on campus is a privilege that can be denied or revoked by the Administration.  By obtaining a parking sticker, you agree to follow all rules and regulations.  Failure to adhere to the rules and regulations below will result in disciplinary action and the possible loss of your parking privileges and other school privileges, i.e. school social events. 

Please return the parking form, a copy or your driver’s license and car registration to the Raynor Office in the Raynor Building.

 

The guidelines that specifically apply to students with parking privileges are as follows:

 

  1. All seniors and juniors that park on campus must drive safely and not enter areas of the campus where buses drop off or pick up students during school hours.  Students will be given a designated numbered space.  Spaces will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.  STUDENTS WITH OUTSTANDING OBLIGATIONS WILL NOT BE GIVEN A PARKING PASS UNTIL THOSE OBLIGATIONS ARE RESOLVED.
  2. Westhill High School is a closed campus, meaning that no student may leave school without going through the normal procedure outlined in the student handbook. FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THIS POLICY WILL RESULT IN FORFEITURE OF PARKING PRIVLIGES AND ADDITIONAL DISCIPLINARY ACTION MAY RESULT FROM VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY.
  3. Students with parking privileges are expected to arrive to the campus on time and make every effort to comply with the attendance policy set forth by the Stamford Board of Education.
  4. Parking stickers must be visible at all times and must be permanently affixed to inside bottom left corner of windshield.  (Not taped to window or sitting on the dashboard)
  5. Students are only allowed to park on campus with a parking pass in the designated spots. NO VEHICLE is to be driven/parked on playing fields, bus lanes, fire lanes, delivery zones behind the cafeteria, or other such areas not intended for regular vehicle use.  DO NOT PARK IN RESERVED SPOTS, i.e. SPOTS LABLED “FACULTY” OR “NO PARKING AREAS”. VIOLATION WILL RESULT IN SCHOOL CONSEQUENCES. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL LOSE THEIR PARKING PRIVILEGE. 
  6. Westhill High School does not assume any responsibility for cars that are parked on campus.
  7. Every student must exercise extreme caution when entering and leaving the parking area and school grounds.  Excessive speeding or reckless driving is prohibited.  Security demands that upon arrival in the parking lot students leave their vehicles and immediately enter the building.  Under no circumstances may a student go to his/her car during the school day without a written pass or verbal agreement from an administrator.  Students should not use their automobiles as lockers.  Students found in the parking lot during the school day without authorization are subject to disciplinary action.
  8. Security Officers are employed by the school district to regulate the parking lot. These employees are to be treated with respect and all requests made of students concerning a vehicle are to be obeyed immediately and without question. Bring your questions to an Assistant Principal. Security personnel will patrol the parking lot every day.  Students are expected to identify themselves when asked and to cooperate with security at all times.  Failure to do so will result in a loss of parking privileges.
  9. Pedestrians and school buses will always be given the right of way; the latter is especially important when the buses are leaving after school.
  10. Drivers are not to allow other students to ride on the hood, bumpers, or any other exterior part of their car.
  11. If the student should lose his/her parking sticker, a replacement should be obtained in the main office at a cost of five dollars.
  12. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations above, including all posted signs and notices pertaining to parking can result in:
    1. Vehicle booted
    2. Vehicle towed
    3. Suspension of driving privileges for a period of time to be determined by the Principal or Assistant Principal
    4. Loss of driving privileges
    5. School disciplinary action

 

The guidelines above have been established to ensure that student parking does not have a negative impact on the safety of our campus or student learning. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will be reviewed by the administration and result in disciplinary action that may include a loss of parking privileges. 

Please return the parking form, a copy or your driver’s license and car registration to the Raynor Office in the Raynor Building.

Permits will be issued on a first come, first served basis.  If you have any questions or concerns about the guidelines above, please meet with your grade administrator as soon as possible.
