- How do students lose their parking permit?
Students lose their permit by not following the rules they are given when they pick up their permit. Be familiar with these rules. The biggest infraction is parking in a different space than the one assigned to them or in the visitor’s parking lot.

No. Students are not allowed to park in the visitor’s lot at any time for any reason before or during school. These few slots are reserved for parents and other visitors.
NORTHVIEW HIGH SCHOOL PARKING RULES AND REGULATIONS
- Students must have a valid parking sticker to park on campus during the school day. This sticker must be permanently placed in the lower right back windshield (passenger side) of the car for which it has been issued. Backing into parking spaces is NOT allowed. The parking sticker must be visible from the back of vehicle when the vehicle is parked.
- Students receiving parking permits accept responsibility to following all school rules and regulations. Suspension of driving privileges, booting of vehicles and/or suspension from school may occur when violations of these rules occur. The parking lot will be checked periodically. (1st offense-loss of parking for one week; 2nd offense-loss of privilege for two weeks; 3rd offense-loss of privilege for the remainder of the school year).
- Parking permits are non-transferable. Students found purchasing, selling, exchanging, altering or counterfeiting permits will have their privileges revoked and subject to suspension.
- Cars will be booted that are illegally parked when the owner cannot be identified. Repeat offenders will have their parking permits revoked and/or other disciplinary consequences.
The booting device would be placed on the car's tire and a notice placed on the windshield explaining that the car has been booted and should not be moved until the boot is removed. Damage will occur if the car is driven while the boot is in place. Removal would require the owner to contact the campus police and pay a $50 cash fine. This is in lieu of the towing charges which can be in excess of $100.
- TEMPORARY PARKING PERMITS are issued when a student must drive a car to school other than his/her car that is registered with the school. In this case, the student must obtain a temporary permit from the front office between 7:50 and 8:15 and display this permit on the right side of the dash. Students must allow ample time to obtain a temporary permit and return to their car to place it on the dash before their first class or student will be marked tardy.
- There is no loitering in the parking lot. Students are not permitted to return to their cars prior to school dismissal without permission from an administrator.
- All passengers, including the driver MUST have a seat belt on before leaving the student parking lot. Failure to adhere to this law will result in disciplinary action, which may include loss of parking privileges.
- Students will observe the 15 MPH speed limit while on school grounds. Students who drive recklessly on school grounds or within 1,000 feet of school grounds are subject to disciplinary action and/or loss of parking permit.
- Student vehicles are subject to search if there are reasonable grounds to believe that drugs, alcohol, stolen property or contraband might be present in the vehicle. Failure to comply with a vehicle search will result in permanent forfeiture of parking privileges and suspension.
- Students who skip school/class, violate parking regulations or drive in a reckless manner will have their permit revoked for a period of time to be determined by the school administration. Students who have their permit revoked are not eligible to receive a refund.
