PARKING PERMIT APPLICATION

 
 

START SMART CLASSES: REQUIRED FOR 2022 - 2023

Start Smart Driving is an SDUHSD-required driver safety education class.  It is offered as a response to the numerous teen car crashes and related fatalities in our community.   All San Dieguito Union High School District students and their parents/guardians must attend a 2-hour Start Smart class in order to obtain a parking permit to park on their school campus.  Officers from the Encinitas Sheriff's station will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities, seat belt usage, dangers of driving under the influence, and many important safety tips.   Parents are required to remain in the class with their students for the entire 2 hours. Students must attend the class with their own parents/guardians.  Attending with a friend's parent does not qualify as credit for the class.  
 
Classes are free of charge.  Classes are 6 pm - 8 pm in the Mosaic Cafe.
Reservations are required.  Please rsvp to startsmartdriving@gmail.com and include your student ID number, student name, and the name of the parent who will attend. You will receive confirmation of the class.
 
Questions: Please contact Nancy Perry-Sheridan, San Dieguito Alliance, 760-519-5877

SDA PARKING POLICIES

      • Obtaining a parking permit DOES NOT guarantee a parking space. Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
      • Students must park only in designated student spaces. Students may not park in any space marked as RED, STAFF or VISITOR. 
      • Neither SDUHSD or SDA is responsible for any damage or loss of vehicle or private property.
      • Vehicles parked on campus are subject to search.
      • Parking permits are not transferable and must be affixed to the lower-left corner of the front windshield.
      • Vehicles without a valid permit parked on campus may be ticketed.
      • Vehicles parked illegally may be towed at owner’s expense.  Vehicles parked in areas not designated as a parking space are subject to tow at owner’s expense, without warning.
      • Students receiving multiple tickets will meet with administration and parents will be contacted.
      • Progressive disciplinary action and possible removal of on-campus parking privileges may be considered.

 

TEMPORARY PARKING PASS

Temporary parking passes are available for students with valid parking permits who have a temporary need to drive a non-permitted vehicle to school. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the temporary pass from the Assistant Principal’s office and display it in the alternate vehicle. Otherwise, the non-permitted vehicle will be subject to citation.
