General Information

Driving a vehicle to school is considered a privilege, not a right. At any time, a student may lose that privilege if administration deems necessary. All persons and vehicles on Woodbury High School (WHS) parking lots are required to adhere to the School Board Policy 527 and the Woodbury High School Driving and Parking Lot Rules.

WHS Driving and Parking Rules

Accidents

  • Students driving and park on campus at their own risk. Any accident occurs should be reported to the School Administration into Woodbury Police or the  School Resource Officer.
  • Independent School District 833 is not responsible for vandalism, injury or theft of items in the school parking lots. Drivers should lock motor vehicles when parked at WHS.

Driving

  • Driving another student’s vehicle is NOT allowed.
  • Entering and leaving campus is allowed via Woodlane Drive only. Wyndham Way may only be used by district transportation services.
  • The speed limit in the parking lot is 10 mph. Careless or reckless driving is not allowed.

Parking

  • Staff lots are off-limits to students from 7:00 AM – 3:30 PM on all school days.

  • Vehicle Searches: All vehicles parked on school property are subject to search. If school officials determine there is a reasonable suspicion that a school regulation, a law has been violated, he/she maybe assisted by law-enforcement officer. Anything in the student’s vehicle is understood to belong to that student. Students with contraband and/or inappropriate items in their vehicles may be subject to additional school consequences per district policy.
  • Permits must be displayed on the rear view mirror while parked in the school lot. Permits must be clearly visible from outside the vehicle. Failure to do so is a violation and a ticket may be issued. (Students are recommended to remove the permit from the mirror when driving.)

  • Permits are not transferable and are not to be resold. Permits may not be forged, altered, or tampered with in any way.
  • Students are not allowed to loiter in or around vehicles once they are on school property. Once the vehicle is parked, students must immediately EXIT the vehicle and enter the school building.
  • Students are required to identify themselves and the occupants of their vehicles when requested to do so by school district personnel.
  • Students are not allowed to go to their vehicle in the parking lot during the school day without written administrative permission.
  • If a car is parked in the school lot with a license number other than the numbers listed on the permit application, the car may be ticketed and/or booted.
  • Woodbury Police may assist Woodbury High School Administration in enforcing parking laws on campus and surrounding streets.
