Can Students Park on Campus?
Parking on campus is a privilege, not a right. In order to park on campus, students must obtain a parking pass, register their vehicle and agree to abide by the Parking Expectations. They are then assigned a specific parking spot in the North (Student) Parking Lot and must park in that spot using the vehicle that they registered.
Students should never park in the South (Staff and Visitor) Parking Lot.
Who can get a Parking Permit?
All eligible drivers with proof of insurance can purchase a pass. Drivers must show proof of insurance and a current driver's license in order to receive a parking pass.

Student Parking Expectations
Student parking on the North Creek High School (NCHS) campus is a privilege. This privilege may be suspended or revoked for failure to meet NCHS campus expectations, described in the student handbook, and/or failing to abide by the following guidelines.
Permit Visibility and Parking Spot:
Parking passes must be clearly displayed at all times while on campus or a ticket could be issued, and may only be used in the registered vehicles(s) - not in another student's vehicle. Students must park in their designated spots by their parking pass. Students must register new vehicles prior to parking on campus. If there is any change to the information provided on this registration form, it is the driver's responsibility to provide these changes online or in writing to the Campus Supervisor.
Parking Pass Transferability:
Parking passes are non-transferable. Students may not loan, borrow, or sell a parking pass to another individual. Altering, copying, or counterfeiting a parking pass is considered theft, and will be treated accordingly. The student driver registered through this form is the ONLY student authorized to use the vehicle(s) and must take responsibility for their vehicle being mechanically safe and operated in a safe/mature manner. Careless driving and/or violating basic driving laws on campus or in adjacent neighborhood areas may result in disciplinary action and the loss of campus parking privileges.
North Creek High School is a closed campus. . Student vehicles are to be parked upon arrival and removed following the student’s last class. Students, other than those who depart for special off-campus education, must have an excuse slip from the Attendance Office before they may depart campus during the academic day. Parking lots are not open to students during the day other than as specified above. Vehicles are not to be used as lockers. Students may not leave campus without permission, including walking, or in a vehicle. Violations of this rule will result in revocation of parking pass for up to two weeks. Repeat offenders may receive disciplinary action which could include detention or Saturday school.
Students who choose to drive and park on NCHS campus do so at their own risk. The Northshore School District and NCHS are not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen property. Vehicles need to be secured to protect personal items.
Vehicles are to be parked within designated (lined) spaces. Care must be taken to avoid blocking adjacent parking spaces and/or fire and traffic lanes. Use of designated disabled parking spaces requires a valid Washington State disabled parking permit. Students who park in these areas without a valid Washington State disabled parking permit will be fined the maximum penalty.
Prohibited Parking Areas:
Student parking is prohibited in the following areas:
Other Unmarked or Unauthorized Areas
The speed limit on NCHS grounds is 5 MPH. Exceeding the speed limit, poor or reckless driving, driving on sidewalks, over barriers or curbs, or engaging in any potentially dangerous activities with a motor vehicle will not be tolerated.
If a student receives a campus ticket for a parking violation, the first offense will be $10; the second $20; the third $50; and each and every violation after the third will result in $120 fine, and disciplinary action which could include detention or Saturday school. Any violations of traffic laws or criminal law will be turned over to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department.
By registering to park at NCHS, students’ cars may be subjected to a search if there is a suspicion of contraband items, other evidence of a student’s violation of the law, or rules governing student conduct.
