Parking Regulations

FHS Parking Regulations

1. Students must park their vehicles in their assigned, designated space as soon as they arrive on property.
2. Parking permits must be clearly displayed on the rearview mirror and visible through the car windshield at all times while on the FHS campus.
3. All student vehicles parked on FHS property must be registered to the student or his/her family. If a different family vehicle must be driven, you must notify the office immediately. That vehicle should also display your parking permit.
4. Parking permits are not transferable. This includes, but is not limited to, providing the permit to another student or using the car of another student.
5. Lost or stolen permits will not be replaced.
6. Parking spaces assigned will be in the FHS West Lot or the Fallston Middle School parking lot.

Loss of Parking Privileges

Parking privileges can be removed as part of disciplinary actions taken by the principal or his designee. Parking privileges can be removed as a result of, but not limited to, the following reasons:

1. Providing the permit to another student or using a car not registered to the assigned student or his/her family.
2. Poor attendance, including, but not limited to, truancy, cutting class, habitual lateness, or unexcused absences.
3. Leaving the school building or property after the car has been parked without permission of an administrator.
4. Driving recklessly, including, but not limited to, speeding, on school grounds.
5. Due to the driver of the vehicle being responsible for the behavior and actions of all passengers in the vehicle, inappropriate behaviors of passengers may be sufficient cause to revoke parking privileges.
6. Waiver students, or those students who have early dismissal, are not permitted to take other students from school property without appropriate authorization from a school administrator. These students must leave school property at the designated time.
7. Students who are in cars and on school property must obey all Harford County Public Schools policies, including tobacco possession and smoking.
8. Parking in spaces not assigned to the student and designated on the parking permit.

Additional Notes Regarding Vehicles on School Property

1. All drivers park at their own risk. FHS and Harford County Board of Education will not be responsible for loss or damage to vehicles or their contents while they are parked on school grounds. Any incident should be reported to police and to a school administrator in writing.
2. Maryland law allows for vehicles on school property to be searched by appropriate school authorities under reasonable suspicion as dictated in the Student Planner.
