Parking Policy

Parking Policies

The Salem-Keizer School District’s parking polices require that all high school students who are driving cars to school shall register their cars with the Student Service Office, shall display the parking permit on the rear view mirror, and shall abide by the rules and regulations governing the use of such cars during the time the student is under the direction of the school.  Permission to park on campus may be revoked at any time for violation of any school regulation regarding automotive use.

  1. Students who drive cars to school must observe the following rules:

1.1. Vehicles must be registered in the Student Service Office in room 157.

1.2. Parking permits are for 11th and 12th grade students with a minimum 2.0 GPA, 90% attendance and a valid driver’s license. Permit cost is $15 per semester.  Permits do not guarantee a place to park. There will be a maximum of 330 permits sold each semester.  There will be days when students with permits will not be able to find a parking space. Students are encouraged to contact the office if they know of anyone parking without a permit.

1.3. Permits will be displayed on rear view mirror.

1.4. The parking lot is “off limits” during school hours except for arriving and departing.

1.5. Students are not to sit in parked cars.

1.6. Students will be expected to follow safe driving practices – 15 miles per hour speed limit.

1.7. Vehicles are to be locked at all times.

1.8. Students are to park in the west parking lot only. The island area, the fence line along the soccer/softball fields, and the spaces behind the building on the north east side are reserved for staff.

1.9. In accordance with Keizer City Ordinance 98-388, students may be fined or their vehicle towed if they do not abide by student parking regulations. Progressive consequences will consist of:

1st offense– Citation $10.00

2nd offense– $10.00 Citation with letter to parents

3rd offense– $10.00 Citation with possible citation from police

            4th offense— Forfeiture of parking privileges

Early graduates need to turn in their parking permits at the end of the first semester. If a permit is lost it will not be reissued, it will be reinstated if found or the permit was stolen.

McNary High School student parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Student parking is in the west parking area using designated spaces only; improperly parked cars may be towed. Parking during the school day (7:00 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) is for students who have purchased permits. Visitors/handicapped parking is located in front of the school and also at the north end near the football field. Students who were not able to purchase a permit, may park in the community. Due to the possibility of damage, students are strongly encouraged not to park their vehicle overnight or on the weekends.

Suspension of Driving Privileges

Students who fail to maintain regular enrollment in school may have either their driving privileges suspended or the right to apply for driving privileges suspended. The superintendent or designee may, under ORS 339.257, notify the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) of the withdrawal of a student who is at least 15 years of age and under 18 years of age. Upon notice by the district that a student has withdrawn from school, ODOT shall notify the student that driving privileges will be suspended on the 30th day following the date of notice unless the student presents documentation that complies with ORS807.066. A student shall be considered to have withdrawn from school if the student has:

  1. More than 10 consecutive days of unexcused absence; or
  2. Fifteen school days total of unexcused absences during a single semester.

The student has a right to appeal the superintendent/designee’s or Board’s decision through district suspension/expulsion due process procedures.
