Student Parking for 2020-21 School Year


There will be no charge for students parking on campus this school year.

However, to obtain a parking permit, all students wanting to drive to school and park on campus must be a licensed and insured driver and fill out the parking registration forms found on the LHS Website/Parking and turn them into Mr. Kinsley on Thursday or Friday April 15th & 16th or on Monday or Tuesday April 19th & 20th depending on which days you are scheduled to be at school. 

Do not send registrations forms in the mail or email, you must physically hand your forms in to Mr. Kinsley.  Mr. Kinsley will be in the entrance courtyard before school and during lunches on those days to collect the registrations and hand out the permits.  If it happens that Mr. Kinsley is not available before school during those initial days you may turn your registration forms in to the receptionists in the main office.  The permit allows you to park on campus during the school day only on days that you are scheduled to attend classes on campus.  Student parking spaces are designated by white lines in the portables lot and the parking lot between the back of the PAC and the tennis courts.  Students are not allowed to park in any space with yellow or blue lines, nor along the bus lane or behind the school by the shop classes and stadium.  Permits will be granted to Seniors and Juniors first and then if spaces are still available, sophomores will be added as well.  Sophomores should still fill out the parking registration forms and turn them into Mr. Kinsley those first 2 days they are in school to ensure they get a space if/when they become available.  With the hybrid school set up we hope to be able to accommodate everyone wanting to park on campus but we cannot guarantee it at this time.  It will depend on how many registrations we receive.  Any student turning in their registration forms after those initial days of school will only be granted a permit if there are any left at that point.  

All students who drive to school must register their vehicles. Parking rules and regulations are available on the school website. 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 drugsniffing 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.
