Parking & Traffic Safety
Student Parking Application
Issaquah High School student drivers - We have a limited number of parking spaces to accommodate students that drive to school. In order to maximize the number of students able to park on campus, applications and parking spaces are prioritized in the following order:
- Carpools (2 or more licensed drivers riding together)
- Individual Seniors
- Individual Juniors
- Individual Sophomores (if spaces are available) - Note: Individual Sophomores rarely receive parking passes
Parking passes cost $140. The cost can be split among carpool groups.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, September 1, 2023.
- On Tuesday, September 5th, a list will be posted in the Commons identifying students that have been granted a parking pass based on the priority criteria listed above.
- Students have until 3 p.m. on Friday, September 15th to pay the $140 fee to the school bookkeeper and pick up their parking pass.
- Monday, September 19th is the first day that parking passes will be required.
Parking on campus is reserved for carpoolers, seniors, and juniors. For increased security and protection, 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 drug-sniffing 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.
