Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve discovered multiple questions that most parents will ask. We know it takes time out of your busy day to call the district or school office, so we’ve answered some of the most common questions below. However, if you still cannot find the answer to your question, we suggest that you check out the student handbook (found on the Home page of each school's website). Remember, we would be happy to hear from you, so contact us if you cannot find exactly what you are looking for!

Where are the boundaries for the Lafayette County School District?

Is my child allowed to bring his/her cell phone to school?

While we do allow students to possess a cell phone and other electronic devices, we do not allow students to use them during school hours. If a student violates this prohibition, we will confiscate the student's cell phone or other electronic device and retain it for a period of not less than thirty calendar days. We will notify the parent(s) in writing of the release date. In lieu of the thirty-day retention, the student may elect to pay a $25.00 fine to have the device returned to the student’s parent or guardian.

If my child has his/her license, may he/she drive to school?

Due to the limited amount of parking available for student parking, we restrict the number of students allowed to bring vehicles to campus. We will sell all student-parking permits in the high school office. We will use the following procedure when offering student parking:

  • Sign, along with the parent/guardian, a consent form for a random suspicious drug testing as well as random car searches.
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Proof of liability insurance
  • Agree to comply by the terms of the parking permit, which is signed by the student and parent/guardian.
  • Understand that no off-road vehicle is allowed on campus.
  • Agree to a car search by school officials if necessary for enforcement of a school rule.
  • Park in assigned area only.

For more information about purchasing a permit, please consult the Student Handbook on the Lafayette High School Home page.
