Parking & Transportation

Unknown.jpeg

The 2014-2015 Parking and Transportation Plan defines a transportation strategy that will enhance mobility for all Campbell Hall students, families, faculty/staff, and visitors.

This new and revised Parking and Transportation Plan was developed with feedback secured through the 2013-2014 Annual Family Survey, with guidance from transportation, planning, and traffic engineering consultants Crain and Associates, and based on the City of Los Angeles’ Conditional Use Permit (CUP) requirements prohibiting parking and dropping-off/picking-up in the neighborhoods surrounding our campus.

The purpose of this plan is to provide our community with a variety of transportation options that will encourage and promote safety, responsibility, social interaction, environmental stewardship, and resource conservation. It takes a comprehensive approach towards identifying targeted solutions for several groups with the end goal of improving the overall transportation experience for everyone. As our community and overall transportation needs may change, we will annually review this plan in order to evolve as needed. 

Because previous attempts to alleviate traffic and parking challenges have not proven effective and because violation of the Parking & Transportation Plan jeopardizes both safety and the school's ability to work constructively with neighborhood groups and the City of Los Angeles, we must take a bolder step towards enforcing this plan. Repeated offenses, given all of the transportation options, deserve appropriate disciplinary attention. See the "Violations & Fines" tab below for more information.

Parking Permits & Registration


Family Parking Permit Decals:

Family Parking Permit Decals are mailed to families via USPS in the week before fall classes begin. Our custom static-cling decals visually identify family vehicles for convenient access to campus throughout the school year. Decals should be placed on the LOWER LEFT (DRIVER’S SIDE) CORNER of your front windshield so that security can easily identify your vehicle.  Please wait for your decals to arrive in the mail by Wednesday, August 27, 2014.  If your decals do not arrive, or you need to request additional decals, please email operations@campbellhall.org.

 

Student Driver Requirements:
Students who meet the following criteria may request a parking permit for the 2014-2015 school year:

  • Student driver is a JUNIOR or SENIOR. Sophomores are not eligible to park on campus.
  • Priority will be given to student drivers who hold full, non-restricted licenses (i.e. have had their license for more than 12 months) and CAN CARRY TWO CARPOOL PASSENGERS. Multiple passengers are encouraged, and all passengers must be declared through the Parking and Transportation Registration process.
  • Student drivers who hold a restricted license (have had a license for less than one year)
    and are unable to carry sibling passengers will be accommodated only when additional parking spaces are available. If their request for parking is unable to be accommodated, student drivers who fall into this category are encouraged to join another student's carpool as a passenger and/or utilize the off-campus park & ride shuttle option.
  • Registered student drivers who are enrolled in and attending sunrise courses will continue to be exempt from the carpool requirement.
  • All student drivers must adhere to the Campbell Hall carpool and safety guidelines articulated in the Parking and Transportation Registration and High School Handbook.

After you request on-campus parking through the Parking and Transportation Registration, the Operations Department will review the application and notify you via email if we are able to accommodate the request for a permit parking hangtag. Please note that only one parking permit hangtag will be assigned to each carpool group. Once on-campus parking is full, students requesting parking permits will be added to a wait list and contacted should additional parking become available.

Please note that parking availability is limited. By adhering to the updated carpool guidelines and submitting the online registration form, students are not guaranteed a parking permit hangtag although every attempt will be made to honor the request.

Student Parking Permit Hangtags:  

All students in grades 10, 11 and 12 are required to submit Parking and Transportation Registration (even if you do not plan to drive). For juniors and seniors who are eligible for on-campus parking, the information gathered through this registration will serve as your parking permit application. Parking requests made through registration after August 22, 2014 will be considered based on parking availability and the ability to carry the required carpool passengers.

Student parking permit hangtags will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis within the tiered priority registration structure referenced below. 

  • SENIORS who hold a full driver's license and can carry the required 2 carpool passengers may apply for on-campus parking online. Applications will be processed beginning June 30, 2014.
  • JUNIORS who hold a full driver's license and can carry the required 2 carpool passengers may apply for on-campus parking online. Applications will be processed beginning July 7, 2014
  • SENIORS who hold a restricted driver's license (have had their license for less than 12 months) may apply for on-campus parking online. Applications will be processed beginning July 14, 2014.
  • JUNIORS who hold a restricted driver's license (have had their license for less than 12 months) may apply for on-campus parking online. Applications will be processed beginning July 21, 2014.  
  • Note: Seniors and Juniors with restricted driver's licenses and the ability to carry sibling passengers will receive priority over single drivers (those without the ability to carry siblings).  
NOTE: You will need to register as a family because to access the form, the student needs to first login to google using the Campbell Hall email address. 

Faculty/Staff Parking Registration:

All faculty/staff should register a transportation plan to assist in managing a process that is effective and evolves with needs. Please click here to complete your parking and transportation plan.


Please note that Campbell Hall Administration reserves the right to temporarily or permanently suspend parking privileges at any time, for any reason.

Carpool Policy and Search

images.jpeg  

As part of Campbell Hall's continuing efforts to create a more sustainable campus and minimize traffic flow, we are requiring student drivers to carpool with at least two other student passengers. Similarly, we are encouraging faculty and staff to carpool with at least one other faculty/staff passenger that would otherwise drive. Student drivers legally restricted by the DMV with a provisional, restricted license, as well as students enrolled in and attending sunrise courses, are exempt from the carpool requirement.

Names of all carpool drivers and passengers are collected during registration and must be updated when/if arrangements are changed. We recommend all drivers evaluate their automobile insurance programs and any license restrictions imposed by law and seek recommendations regarding coverage from a qualified insurance agent. Campbell Hall assumes no liability arising from carpool arrangements.

Complimentary Valet Parking

 

Unknown.jpeg  

Complimentary valet parking will be available to parents/guardians and visitors between the hours of 7:30am-11:30am, Monday through Friday. Valet parking attendants will be located on P2 (the bottom level) of the Arts & Education Center (AEC) parking garage.

This option is ideal for elementary parents who need to escort a child into school (or help carry that big art project in!) as well as for parents joining us for morning chapel.  If you need to stay on campus after 11:30am, plan to move your car to the Wash parking lot, or to a spot designated by security, before valet closes at 11:30am.

For your added convenience, please do not tip the valet attendants -- gratuity has been included in the service agreement.

Please watch for signage and always follow attendant and security guard instructions when parking on campus.

    Sustainability

    Unknown-1.jpeg

    Whether you are a parent, student, faculty/staff, or community member, you have the ability to help Campbell Hall reduce our carbon footprint. We can all monitor energy use. We can all re-use and recycle to help reduce waste. We can all carpool, ride share, avoid idling when waiting in line, and explore using the bus.

     

    Achieving sustainable solutions calls for stewardship, with everyone taking responsibility for solving environmental problems so our children can inherit a better world.

    Campbell Hall is committed to doing its part and will continue to elevate efforts in this area. We are always exploring ways to integrate and promote sustainability. For example:
     

    • Prioritize sustainability over convenience. The fact that your child finally has a (provisional) license doesn’t mean you should stop carpooling. In general, families shouldn’t even begin to think about students driving until junior year, if then.
    • The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy issues a comprehensive list of model year 2000 to model year 2013 vehicles that scored 40 and above in its rankings. In the future, this parking and transportation plan may utilize lists like this one to award preferential parking spaces on campus. View the 2014 list here.
    • Our carpool lines stand right next to classrooms. Please, if you arrive early, get in line and TURN OFF YOUR ENGINE. The high school sustainability club already plans to picket the carpool line with placards to that effect!
    • Campbell Hall is replacing grass and hedges with drought-resistant plans, and adding gardens to teach students about organic gardening and eating locally.
    Join the school-wide sustainability committee which is discussing these ideas and others. Let Kena Dorsey (dorseyk@campbellhall.org) know if you are interested in getting involved.

    Off-Campus Park & Ride

    images-3.jpeg

    If you have a provisional, restricted license (i.e. have had your license for less than one year) and are unable to carry carpool passengers per DMV limitations, or simply want to help decrease traffic around campus, please use our new off-campus park & ride shuttle bus from a nearby, free parking lot at the corner of Oxnard and Laurel Canyon.

    Check back here for additional information about the shuttle bus, including daily drop-off/pick-up schedules. 

    Pedestrians, Walking & Biking

    Unknown.jpeg

     

    According to the CDC, in the next 24 hours, on average, more than 460 people will be treated in an emergency department for traffic-related pedestrian injuries. For that reason, they recommend the following tips for pedestrian safety:

    • Cross the street at a designated crosswalk.
    • Be careful at intersections where drivers may fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly at the 101 entrance/exit ramps (make sure that cars are actually stopping, not just that the crosswalk light is green for pedestrians).
    • Increase your awareness (don't be distracted by mobile devices or social networks) and increase visibility by wearing retro-reflective clothing.
    • It's safest to walk on a sidewalk, but if you must walk in the street, walk facing traffic.
    Many students, staff, and faculty who live near Campbell Hall decide to walk or bike to campus. To optimize pedestrian safety when crossing Laurel Canyon, pedestrians coming to campus should use the east-west crosswalk at Landale St. and Laurel Canyon. Students may not utilize the east-west crosswalk on Laurel Canyon/101 freeway intersection at any time.

     

    The pedestrian and bicycle entrance and exit during drop-off and pick-up times is located at the middle gate of the Arts and Education Center on Laurel Canyon. This gate will be guarded by security personnel during these times. During non-peak times, pedestrians and bicyclists should seek entrance through the security-guard monitored entrance at Gate 1.
     

    Once inside the campus, the "hill" roadway from the Meditation Garden to the Garver Gym stairs is designated as a pedestrian-only area outside of busy drop-off/pick-up traffic times.

    Bicycle parking racks are available near Gate 1 (adjacent to the junior high faculty lounge).

    Violations & Fines

    images.jpeg

    Because violations of parking and drop off/pick up rules endanger our children and pedestrians, seriously inconvenience our neighbors, and jeopardize the school's ability to work constructively with neighborhood groups and the City of Los Angeles, repeated infractions to the school's Parking and Transportation Policies will be penalized.

    The following are serious violations:

    • Student, faculty, or staff parking on prohibited streets (e.g. the Landale community including Ben Ave, Sarah St, Agnes Ave, Gentry Ave, and Landale St).
    • Dropping off and/or picking up students on Laurel Canyon or in the adjacent Landale neighborhood.
    • Making U-turns in the adjacent Landale neighborhood.
    • Parking in non-designated parking spots on or off campus. 
    • Dropping off and/or picking up in non-designated locations on campus (e.g. AEC P1 garage).

    First offenses will receive a written communication reminding the driver about our Parking & Transportation Plan as well as our responsibility to the City, the community, and to each other. Second offenses will receive a ticket for $100, third offenses will receive a ticket for $250, and fourth offenses will receive a ticket for $1000. If you are in violation of the parking and transportation plan, you will receive a copy of the written ticket as well as a photo image of the infraction. The ticket will also be forwarded to the Operations Department and the Business Office for payment processing.

    If, within one school year, more than four incidents occur with respect to any student, family, or family representative, Campbell Hall may not extend an invitation to renew school enrollment as repeated violation of this policy means our values are sufficiently inconsistent.

    We cannot overstate the importance of making drop-off/pick-up more efficient, of increasing our carpool numbers, or the necessity of being sensitive to the impact of Campbell Hall on the neighborhood.   We ask for your fullest cooperation in implementing this plan and that you share it with anyone who is designated to drive on behalf of your family.

     

     

    2014-2015 Parking & Transportation Plan Goals: 

    With alternative transportation options, an appropriate mix of on-campus parking and off-campus park and ride, complimentary valet service and more, there is a transportation option for every need in this new plan. Following are goals of the plan:

    • Provide multiple options and solutions to various groups based on the existing parking supply and utilization.
    • Continually assess supply against several factors including future parking needs, potential demand reductions because of alternative transportation options, and potential long-term loss of parking supply due to construction and/or facilities development.
    • Promote alternative modes of transportation including walking, bicycling, and more. This will assist in a significant shift from environmentally harmful, sedentary travel to clean, active travel.
    • Reduce the number of vehicles, particularly single occupant vehicles, regularly traveling to/from campus by establishing enforceable and clear carpooling requirements.
    • Better educate the Campbell Hall community about the benefits of utilizing non-traditional modes of transportation in support of sustainability initiatives.
    • Manage campus access, travel demand, and parking to avoid exacerbating traffic congestion on campus and in surrounding community.
