Parking at Cal High


In order to park on campus, all students must enroll in and complete the California Highway Patrol Smart Start driving program.  There are various dates and locations available and there is no fee for this program. For more information, pleases visit the district website or click this link.
All vehicles must have the current school year permit hanging visibly from the rear-view mirror at all times.
All vehicles must be parked in appropriately lined student stalls.  Parking in staff spaces, fire lanes, on sidewalks, in driveways or dirt areas will result in a citation.
Drivers violating any school, district, or county law will be cited (ticketed) accordingly.
Vehicles may not display any offensive symbols, signs or words. 
  • 1st offense:  Removal of item(s) from vehicle….parent will be contacted.
  • 2nd offense:  Removal of item(s) from vehicle, suspension of permit for semester, Monday School, and parent conference.
Students must obey all parking/driving laws and school officials. Unsafe driving includes speeding, laying rubber, cutting off other drivers, driving in the wrong lane or in the opposite direction of traffic.  Any unsafe driving on school campus is reported to the San Ramon Police and are subject to the following consequences:
  • 1st offense:  Suspension of permit for two weeks and Monday School.
  • 2nd Second offense:  Suspension of permit for remainder of the school year and Monday School or school suspension and parent conference.
Parking permits are the property of the school and are issued to the student for the privilege of parking on the school campus.    
Permits transferred/copied/sold/given to other students will be forfeited, and Monday School or school suspension and parent conference.
Permit replacement will cost $75 per semester.  It may take several weeks to investigate the location of a missing permit.  During this time, the student will not be allowed to park on campus.
Having a parking permit is not a guarantee that a parking spot will be available.  
We cannot guarantee parking lot preference.  We will make every attempt to issue permits based on preference.
All vehicles are subject to search while parked on public school property.
California High School is not responsible for theft, loss, or damaged property for cars parked on campus.
PARKING LOTS ARE CONSIDERED OFF CAMPUS.  California High School is a closed campus, and students may not leave during the school day including brunch and lunch.
