Student Parking Lot Closed at Break and Lunch
This is the last reminder that the student parking lot is closed at break and lunch. The only students who are allowed in the parking lot at brunch are students who are leaving due to an open A3 or B6, and the only students allowed at lunch are students driving off campus. Beginning today, consequences will be given to students not following this rule. Reasons for closing parking lot are the following:
Vaping and other drug use
Graffiti and vandalism of school property
Broken glass and litter
Damage to students’ vehicles
Unsafely operating vehicles
Leaving campus
Harrassment and bullying
Student safety is priority for Soquel Administration. In addition to the above behaviors, safety during an emergency is a concern. In the event of an emergency, students in the parking lot are at a greater risk.
