Students that drive to school had a message delivered to them this morning over the intercom. The message stated that all students should be parked in the student parking lot located near the football field. This lot is the only designated student lot and is where students parking spots are assigned. Recently, a lot of students have been parking in the front parking lot where they are not supposed to.
“Students that are parked in the front parking lot will be ticketed” said principal Susan Cheadle-Holt, “All students should be parked in the student parking lot located near the football field”.
When the message was done many students went out and moved their vehicles to the student parking lot, while others just ignored the message. Some students do park in the student parking lot and had nothing to worry about when the principal heeded the warning of potential parking tickets. Students that drive are upset about the enforcement of the rule.
“I think it’s ridiculous. They’re really wrong for giving students tickets,” said senior Kayla Dennings, “I’ve been late so many times when it snowed just from having to walk to the back door all the way from the student lot. They don’t really take care of the back lot and trudging through snow sucks”.
Majority of students that drive are seniors and these tickets just add on to the already growing list of expenses that come with senior year.
“We’ve been here for four years and we already have enough that needs to be paid for. We deserve better parking,” said Dennings.
The rule has always been in place, but never as enforced as it is now. The enforcement of the rule could possibly cause a lot of inconvenience for students now and in the future.
