High school students park on the east side of the school building every day. When parents drop their kids off by the high school parking lot it makes an unsafe environment for the younger kids.
Parents that park in the high school parking spots put their younger children at risk of getting hit by a high school student pulling into their parking spot. If parents would park in front of the building it would keep a safer environment for the younger students.
“When I am pulling into the parking lot I am usually looking for a spot to park, not looking for kids that may run out in front of my truck,” junior Rance Tucker said.
Another reason parents need to drop their kids off in the front is because the high school parking lot is usually full by the end of the day and students may not be able to find a spot to park at in their parking lot.
“I do not like when parents park in the high school parking spots because it creates a hassle for me to park when there is no spots open,” senior Brandon Nibblet said.
It is not a very far walk from the front doors to the middle school locker rooms. The middle school students are suppose to gather by the stage so they do not need to be dropped off at the high school doors when the front doors are closer for them to walk.
Not only do parents need to change how they drop their kids off, they also need to make a complete stop at the stop sign. Drivers that run the stop sign are putting high school students in danger when pulling into the school.
There are two things that parents can do to keep the high school parking lots cluster free and keep everyone safer.
Parents need to drop their kids off at the front doors so that they are not taking up space where the high school students need to park and they also need to make a complete stop at the stop sign after they drop their children off.
