Transportation & Parking


Parking permits are available to students to park on the LHWHS parking lots as a matter of privilege, not a right. Parking permits are required during school hours for all motor vehicles that are parked on school lots, except those belonging to visitors. Parking permits will only be sold one per family, to seniors and juniors on a space-available basis. Sophomores and freshmen are not eligible to apply for parking permits. The cost of a parking permit is $100. The cost of a replacement permit is $20.

In order to purchase a parking permit, a student must complete the registration process. Permits are issued at the discretion of the principal and may be denied due to individual circumstances. Eligibility will be reviewed every nine-week period. Parking permits are non-transferable.

Once an individual has been issued a parking permit, the following criteria must be met every nine weeks in order to continue parking during the school year:

●  No out of school suspension in the last nine-week period;

●  A student may not have more than 12 unexcused tardies during any nine-week period;

●  Student may not have more than 7 unexcused absence periods during any nine-week period.

If the above is not met, the student will lose his/her parking privilege for the next nine-week period. Permits will be reissued for the following nine weeks if the student meets the above criteria.

In addition, revocation of parking privileges for the remainder of the nine-week period and the following nine-week period will occur if a student receives an out-of-school suspension.

Permits must be displayed on the rearview mirror with the tag number facing out. Parking permits are to be used only by the person to whom they are issued and only on family-owned vehicles that are properly registered with the school Students using any permit other than their own are subject to disciplinary action.

The school district retains authority to conduct routine patrols of parking lots and inspections of the exteriors of vehicles on school property. The school district may inspect the interiors of vehicles whenever a school official has reasonable suspicion that illegal or unauthorized materials are contained inside the vehicles.

Students are to park in their assigned spot only. The speed limit on the school parking lot is 10 miles per hour and cell phones should not be used while driving. Careless driving will be subject to disciplinary action. All accidents should be reported immediately to the main office. The Ladue Police may be called. Insurance information should be exchanged any time there is an accident on campus. Students are not permitted on the parking lot without a valid parking permit.
