    IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING STUDENT VEHICLE USE AND

    PARKING ON SCHOOL PROPERTY

    In accordance with Board Policy, only high school students who are issued valid parking permits are allowed to drive to school and park their vehicles in the school’s designated parking areas.  Each school has a designated parking area located on-campus, which is the only area where students who drive to school are permitted to park their vehicles; there are no designated off-campus student parking areas at either high school. 

    The District expressly disclaims any and all liability that could arise from a student parking his/her vehicle in an area other than the school’s designated parking areas on campus, and the student and his/her parents are assuming any and all risks associated with parking of vehicles in an area that is not authorized by the school district as a student designated parking area. 

    In addition, any student who is found to be parking his/her vehicle in an area that is not a designated student parking area will have their parking privileges immediately revoked, and be subject to disciplinary penalties, including but not limited to suspension from school.

    Please be further advised that the insurance maintained by the Wappingers Central School District may not cover claims arising from students who park their vehicles in locations other than a designated student parking area.  As such, parents of students who park their vehicles in locations other than a designated student parking area may be responsible for the full cost of any medical expenses and/or suits, judgments, claims, damages, losses or expenses including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and litigation costs, arising out of an incident that occurs as a result of a student parking his/her vehicle in any location other than the school’s designated student parking areas.     

    The District will continue the strict enforcement of its policies and regulations related to students who drive their vehicles to school.  We urge all parents to remind their children of the Board’s policy and regulations related to driving a vehicle to school.

    Please refer to Section IV of the Code of Conduct - Policy 5300 for further information.
