As we plan for next year’s student transportation needs, I want to remind you of existing school policy for the 2021-22 school year.
While the school acknowledges the convenience for some students to drive to and from the Upper School each day, a growing number are arriving by themselves rather than forming a carpool (or riding one of the many bus routes that we offer). Doing so rapidly exhausts our limited supply of on-campus parking and leads to strained neighborhood relations as drivers look to the streets around the school for parking.
It has long been the school’s policy that students may not park in the neighborhood, and we will continue to enforce that policy next year.
Student parking passes will be offered via a lottery, and priority will be given to students who drive a carpool. Passes will then be assigned by grade, beginning with the senior class. Once all available spaces have been assigned, students who do not receive a pass will need to sign up for a bus, ride in another carpool, or be dropped off at school. Pricing for the various options has been adjusted to reflect the importance of shared ridership.

Thank you for helping Harvard-Westlake to address the parking shortage at the Upper School while being more responsible to the environment and to our neighbors.
