OPHS will not mitigate claims between insurance companies. If a student hits a parked, unoccupied vehicle in any way, it is expected that he or she reports the incident immediately to the coordinator/adviser of student parking, a principal, or indoor/outdoor monitor.  Failure to do so will result in a loss of parking privileges and a disciplinary referral.

    READ THIS CAREFULLY:

    BAKER LOT ONLY: SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER:  Students who park their vehicles in the lot after 4 pm (For athletics or co-curricular activities) must park their cars in the first three rows near Baker Road.  This is mostly on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. All Students who receive their parking permits before or during these months will receive a schedule. This is due to Quaker Marching Band Practice. The marching band does not have a practice field to use so they use the Baker parking lot twice a week.  Students will receive disciplinary action in addition to a parking violation tag for noncompliance of this rule. See the parking lot diagram in the Glove Box Parking Reference Guide (WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR PERMIT). This is their only practice area, respect their practice space.

    Violations Levels:

    • The 1st violation of the parking rules will initially have a violation tag adhered to their vehicle and the loss of their parking privileges for a minimum of 10 weeks.
    • For any subsequent violation a second violation tag adhered to the vehicle and the loss of parking privileges for the remainder of the school year at the discretion of the parking coordinator/adviser or Administrator of Student Activities.
    • Each violation after the 2nd offense will result in the immediate towing of the vehicle at the owner’s expense and a disciplinary referral.
    • Reckless driving will not be tolerated.  Students driving on campus in a reckless manner or found cutting through parking spaces to make a faster exit will lose their parking privileges immediately and/or receive a disciplinary referral.

    Reminder:       

    STUDENTS MAY NOT DRIVE OR PARK IN THE FREEMAN ROAD FACULTY PARKING LOT FOR ANY REASON FROM 7:00 AM. TO 4:00 PM.  VIOLATIONS OF THIS RULE WILL RESULT IN THE LOSS OF PARKING PRIVILEGES AND/OR A DISCIPLINARY REFERRAL.
