Parking Policy

All parking passes will be issued on a first come first served basis with priority given to seniors.


STUDENT PERMITS: ALL students intending to park on campus must first attend a Smart Start seminar presented by Irvine Police Department. Students must then obtain a parking permit (window sticker) to park on campus or any school-controlled parking lot. Students will be provided a window sticker for each of their vehicles for a $25.00 fee per semester. Throughout the school year, parking regulations and applications can be obtained from the Activities office.  Woodbridge Campus Control Assistants will issue the permits and supervise the application of stickers to the inside of the rear passenger window. ALL stickers must be applied directly to the rear window – DO NOT USE SCOTCH TAPE TO ADHERE THE STICKER TO THE WINDOW. The permit will be considered invalid if there is any variance to the original application of the sticker.

Students must attend Smart Start presentation before receiving parking permit. See more information below.


STUDENT PARKING: Senior and Junior students can park in the approved Church Parking or the WHS Tennis Center Lot. Sophomores should only park in the WHS Tennis Center Lot.


CHURCH PARKING: The Presbyterian Church lot, which includes the Jenny Hart Day Care Center parking lot and the L.D.S. Church lot marked “CHURCH” (the last row and spaces east of the speed bumps adjacent to their building) – NO STUDENTS. NOTE: Students’ vehicles are subject to citation and /or towing at the Church’s discretion.


CONTROLLED PARKING: Students may not park in spaces designated for staff or visitors during the school day (7:00am - 3:30 pm). This includes all spaces in the front lot and all spaces behind the pool near the S portable classrooms.


PARKING ENFORCEMENT: Irvine Police Department enforces the parking regulations for Irvine Unified School District. Woodbridge High School does not benefit from the fines collected by IPD for citations issued. Citation disputes must be made in person to the So. Orange County Superior Court.  Parking regulations are also enforced by the Campus Control Assistants, who may issue detentions, referrals or call the Police department for citations. These rules have been established to provide and maintain a safe environment at Woodbridge High School.

Driving and parking on campus is a privilege that can be revoked. Parking permits will be surrendered for unsafe driving, defiance of parking rules or other disciplinary issues.  By parking your vehicle in the student parking lot you shall hereby allow school officials to search your vehicle if the need arises.



Smart Start is a safe driving presentation provided by the Irvine Police Department in collaboration with IUSD in an effort to ensure the safety of our students beginning their driving careers. Each of our high schools will require SMART START attendance and participation for students interested in obtaining a school parking permit. For this reason, IUSD administration and the Irvine Police Department have identified various dates, times and locations for the presentation and welcome students from IUSD high schools to attend any session.

Students (grades 9-12) may participate in the presentation before or after they receive their driver’s license and have a need for a school parking permit. Student attendance for the entirety of the presentation is required to gain a parking permit and is sufficient for the remainder of the student’s high school career. Of course, students interested in brushing up on their driving skills are encouraged to attend more than once during their high school experience. We also encourage and welcome parents to accompany their child to the presentation as the content is relevant for all drivers.

Presentations will begin promptly at the identified time and students are required to be present for the full presentation in order to be eligible for the parking permit. Thank you for your cooperation! We’re hopeful that our collaboration with the Irvine Police Department will impact the safety of our students and other citizens both on and off IUSD campuses.
