No student parking is allowed in the northwest lot along Laramie Avenue.
No parking on Frontage Road within the School Zone.
Parking is prohibited in all fire lanes. Violators will be subject to forfeiture of their parking permit and their cars may be ticketed by the Wilmette Police Department and towed at owner's expense.
Student vehicles are to be properly parked in the designated student sections of the parking lot. A car is considered misparked if it is not in a parking stall. Available faculty and visitor parking stalls are NOT to be occupied by student vehicles.
If a car is in any way blocking traffic or blocking entrance or egress lanes, the car may be ticketed by the Wilmette Police and towed away at the driver's expense.
There is a Loyola Academy fine of $15.00 assessed to drivers of improperly parked cars. The fine for a second offense is $25.00. Loyola Academy will fine students $50.00 for failure to properly display parking permit tags.
Students are not to be in the parking lot or sitting in cars during the school day. Jug is assigned for violation.
Students who park their cars on Loyola Academy property, at any off-campus permit parking area, or in the school zone, must submit to a vehicle search when directed by the Dean. Failure to comply will result in the loss of your parking permit and, if necessary, police intervention.
Students who park their cars on Loyola Academy property or any off-campus permit parking will be responsible for the contents of the vehicle.
Students who are legally parked in the Loyola Academy campus parking lot or off campus permit parking lot will forfeit their parking permit, without a refund, if illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol, or weapons are found in the vehicle.
Due to the construction, student parking lots have changed for the 2018–19 school year. Students with parking permits will park in two areas. As shown on the parking plan, these include:
The new lot south of the tennis courts (Lot D)
The aisle along the north side of the tennis courts and the western 1½ aisles in the lot north of the tennis courts, closest to Laramie Avenue (Lot C)
Students may access the student parking lots via the three southernmost driveways on Laramie Avenue that align across Forest Avenue, Walnut Avenue and Elmwood Avenue.
After school, students will exit to Laramie Avenue in one of two locations:
Parking South of the tennis courts (Lot D): Students will exit from the driveway at the north end of the lot, just south of the tennis courts. Please follow directions from the school's traffic control aide posted at the driveway. The southern driveway is entrance-only to accommodate student pick-up activity and is not available to exit.
Parking North of the tennis courts (Lot C): Students will exit to Laramie Avenue using the driveway at the north end of the lot. Please merge with traffic exiting the student pick-up lanes and follow directions from the traffic control aide posted at the intersection. The driveway at the south end of the parking lot will be closed during the school dismissal period.
Maximum speed in the parking lot is 10 miles per hour.
Extreme caution and care is to be used entering, parking, and leaving the parking lot. Careless, dangerous driving is not allowed. Violators will be fined, lose parking privileges and may be suspended.
Students guilty of reckless driving in the School Zone areas are subject to fines and loss of parking privileges.
Students who drive to and from school and their passengers are required to wear seat belts when leaving and entering the Loyola parking lot. Students may not unnecessarily blow the car horn. Failure to comply will result in fines.
SENIOR PARKING PERMITS
Parking permits will be awarded via a lottery system. The lottery will take place in the Spring for the following school year. Only current juniors are permitted to enter the senior parking lottery.
Rising seniors with unpaid parking fines will not be permitted to enter the parking lottery.
Parking permit tags will be available to seniors only.
In the event that two members of the same family are drawn in the Lottery, only one permit will be assigned to that family.
Students who lose or report their permits lost or stolen are required to pay the full parking permit cost in order to secure a replacement permit. If the lost/stolen permit is found, a full refund will be made.
Students are cautioned about giving or selling a permit to another student for any reason. The only way a permit can be obtained is through the Dean's Office. Students who sell a permit to someone else will be responsible for returned money from said sale to Dean's Office. If a student gives his or her permit to another student, that student will be fined, assigned a Saturday morning detention, and will forfeit his or her permit.
Students who purchase permits from seniors will be subject to sanctions and will not be permitted to park in the Loyola Academy lot their senior year.
Students must display the parking permit in the proper manner at all times. Failure to do so will result in fines.
Students who display a fake or counterfeit permit or participate in creating a counterfeit permit will be fined $75.00 and receive a minimum one day in-school suspension.
Students who are illegally parked in the Loyola Academy campus parking lot will not be permitted to enter the Parking Lottery at any time if illegal drugs, drug, paraphernalia, alcohol or a weapon are found in their illegally parked vehicle.
