Vehicles parked on Timber Creek High School property are under the jurisdiction of Timber Creek High School. Parking permits may be obtained for $50.00. NOTE: Seniors pay an additional $50 to select their parking spot, totaling the $100 mentioned above.
According to local policy (FNF Local), Administrators may conduct searches of vehicles on school property any time there is reasonable cause to do so. Refusal of consent will result in a loss of parking privileges and possible involvement of law enforcement.
A student has full responsibility for the security of his/her vehicle and must make certain it is locked and that the keys to the vehicle are not given to others. Timber Creek High School is NOT responsible for loss or damages which occur while vehicles are parked on school property.
All students regardless of age, will be held responsible for any prohibited objects or substances, such as alcohol, tobacco products, drugs, weapons, etc. that are found in his/her car and will be subject to disciplinary action by Keller ISD, as well as possible involvement of law enforcement.
Students must purchase a TCHS parking permit prior to parking on Timber Creek High School property. Additional tags may be purchased when lost or damaged for a cost of $25.00.
Parking stickers will NOT be sold or issued with incomplete paperwork, or if the student has any outstanding school fines/fees. The parking information application must have all information completed and the parking regulations application must have both parent/guardian and student signatures (even if student is 18). We must have accurate information for each parking permit sold.
Sharing of parking permits is not permitted and may result in the loss of parking privileges. The submission of fraudulent or incorrect vehicle identification information may result in the revocation of parking privileges.
A student will not display any item on his/her vehicle which may be interpreted as offensive. The offensive nature of an object will be determined at the discretion of the TCHS administration.
Any student parked in a handicapped parking space (without a handicapped permit), teacher’s lot, visitor’s lot, striped area, fire lanes, or other unauthorized areas will be subject to having his/her vehicle immobilized (booted) or towed at owner’s expense, loss of parking privileges, and/or disciplinary actions.
If vehicle is immobilized, a $25.00 removal fee will be charged. If vehicle is immobilized because student has not purchased a parking permit, the boot will not be removed until a permit is purchased and the removal fee is paid. Boots will be removed after the regular school day has ended. Vehicles that create safety or access problems may be towed, without warning, at owner’s expense. The progression of disciplinary action is as follows:
