Student Parking Regulations
All Lemont High School students who are issued a parking permit must adhere to the following parking regulations. Failure to comply with these regulations may result in a police referral (ticket), loss of parking privileges, revocation of the parking permit, and/or other disciplinary action if the circumstances warrant.
- Students receiving a parking permit must have a valid driver's license, be covered by a valid auto insurance policy, and pay a non-refundable $100 permit fee.
- All of a student’s fees – including academic and extracurricular fees, both from the current year and previous years – must be paid in full for the student to receive a parking permit. A student’s parking privileges may be suspended during the year if he/she has an unpaid fee balance.
- Permits are not transferable and may not be loaned or sold.
- Only one parking permit will be issued per household, unless there is a demonstrable need.
- All student vehicles parked on campus must display a valid current school year permit.
- Only juniors and seniors may apply for a parking permit. Students who do not have a valid current school year permit may not park on school grounds. Students with parking permits must park in designated student sections of the lots. Student parking is based on space availability, on a first come, first served basis. Student parking in spots designated for faculty and staff, including before school, is strictly prohibited. Students will receive consequences (in accordance with the Student Handbook) if they are tardy as a result of having to move a vehicle.
- Parking on school grounds for students is a privilege. Students who park on school grounds agree to abide by the parking regulations and the Student Handbook. Failure to adhere to the student parking regulations may result in disciplinary consequences, including the loss of parking privileges and revocation of the parking permit. All vehicles parked on school grounds are subject to search.
- The use or possession of tobacco of any kind – including electronic smoking devices – is strictly prohibited on school property, including within or around personal vehicles while on campus.
- Reckless driving is strictly prohibited.
- A permit must be used only by the student to whom it was issued, and in the vehicle for which it was issued. If a student sells, gives away, or loans a parking permit to another student, his/her parking privileges will be revoked. A student in possession of a parking pass not issued to the student will, as applicable, have his/her parking privileges for the current school year revoked and/or will forfeit the ability to obtain a parking permit the following school year.
- If the vehicle a student’s parking pass is registered to is being repaired or otherwise not available for use for a period of time, the student should contact the Dean’s Office.
- Lost or stolen permits must be reported to the Dean’s Office within two days of the loss.
- Students may not loiter in the parking lot at any time. Students must receive permission from the Dean's Office to go to the parking lot during the school day.
- If a student's attendance rate falls below 90 percent, his/her parking permit will be revoked.
- Students who use a personal vehicle to skip a class - either by sitting in the vehicle or using it to leave campus, or allow a classmate to do the same - will be subject to revocation of the parking permit.
- The violation of any student parking regulation may result in the revocation of the student’s parking permit. The permit fee is non-refundable, even if the permit is revoked.
- Commercial motor vehicles, including trailers, are prohibited in parking lots.
- According to Illinois State Law, "A person, regardless of age, may not use a wireless telephone at any time while operating a motor vehicle on a roadway in a school speed zone." (P.A. 096-0131). The prohibition of cell phone use within a school zone extends to its parking lots.
