Please see the student handbook for complete rules.
STUDENT PARKING: NO STUDENT IS TO BE DROPPED OFF OR PICKED UP IN THE STUDENT PARKING LOT.
Driving to school is a privilege granted to students who choose not to take advantage of school bus transportation. In order for a student to maintain driving privileges, the parent/guardian and student must ensure that the following rules are strictly followed:
1. All student drivers are required to take the National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 Class prior to driving to school. This is a one time class and the one time fee of $35 must be paid to the NSC, not the school. There are various locations, one of which is Crestwood, where classes are available. For further information or to register call 800-733-6185 or visit the website at http://www.scaliveat25.org/.
2. Students must take one of the driver safety classes offered at Crestwood after school in order to obtain a parking permit.
3. Students must purchase a parking permit each year.
4. Students must report to school prior to 8:20 and leave the vehicle immediately. No loitering is allowed in the student parking area before or after school. Students should be off campus or with their activity sponsor by 3:45 p.m.
5. PARK IN THE STUDENT PARKING AREA ONLY. If your vehicle is found to be in an unauthorized area or parking space, the vehicle may be ticketed or towed at the owner’s expense.
6. Do not double park at any time.
7. You must have administrative permission to return to the student parking lot after entering the building except after the final bell of the day.
8. You must have an up-to-date school parking permit for any vehicle parked in the student parking lot or the vehicle may be towed at the owner’s expense. Cost per decal is subject to change. (See the Parking Permit Requirements sheet for current prices and dates for training required for a parking permit.)
9. By entering school grounds, the person in charge of any vehicle consents to the search of the vehicle (with or without cause) by school officials or police officers. The search may include the passenger compartment, engine compartment, trunk, and all containers (locked or unlocked) in or on the vehicle.
10. A detailed schedule of regulations and penalties is available upon request from the bookkeeper and/or traffic monitor.
11. A temporary permit may be purchased for $3.00 (subject to change) or charged for $6.00 a day for the student who qualifies but forgets the permanent permit for the day.
12. Illegally transporting other students off campus is a Category II disciplinary action, the penalty for which may include suspension of driving privileges in addition to other penalties (3 days out-of-school-suspension / 3 discipline points).
13. Driving on unauthorized non-road surfaces may result in fines and/or loss of driving privileges.
14. Violation of any parking regulations may result in fine or loss of driving privileges (perhaps permanently) based on the seriousness of the offense.
DRIVING/PARKING PRIVILEGES MAY BE REVOKED AT THE DISCRETION OF THE ADMINISTRATION. PARKING ON CAMPUS IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT.
