Student Parking & Driving

The Activities Office is responsible for selling parking permits. 

•All vehicles parked on the school grounds must be registered with the school (no exceptions) and the VVHS parking tag must be on lower drivers side of windshield AT ALL TIMES.

•The cost of the initial purchase of a parking tag is $40.00 (non-refundable). Replacement cost for lost or stolen tags will be $40.00 or the original cost of the tag (prices will decrease after the first semester). Parking forms are located in the Activities Office (D106). All parking pass forms must have student and parent signatures prior to purchase

Everyone must provide the following information:

  • A valid driver’s license
  • A current school year VVHS School ID
  • Proof of insurance 
  • Registration of vehicle(s). 
  • You may not sell or transfer a parking permit to another student at any time.
  • Neither VVHS nor APS are responsible for loss or damage to the vehicle or its contents.
  • If you park illegally your car will be tagged. At the third (3) violation, your car will be booted and documented. The cost for removal of the boot is $50.00.
  • Parking passes will be sold to seniors, juniors, and sophomores.
  • Parking on VVHS property is a privilege, not a right.

Policies For Use Of VVHS Parking Lots:

  2. No student parking is allowed in any other lots on campus.
  3. Violators may be tagged, booted, and/or towed.
    • Towing will be at owner’s expense.
    • Removing a boot will be a $50.00 charge to the student.
    • Tampering with the boot is prohibited; cost will be charged to the student to repair the boot.
  4. Students may not access their vehicles during passing periods and school hours. Your car is not your locker.

Volcano Vista High School emphasizes traffic safety and expects all drivers and passengers to use seat belts.  Students are expected to drive carefully and obey posted signs.  Violations of guidelines will result in suspension of driving privileges and/or towing at owner’s expense.  Parking regulations are strictly enforced. 

It is a privilege, not a right, to drive and park on school grounds.

Gates to all lots will be locked from 8am to 2pm. All traffic will be required to enter and exit through the main entrance on Rainbow Blvd. during these times.
