This year at Forbush High School, there has been some talk about rearranging the student parking lots. The general idea is that there should be a separation between upper and lower classmen between the two parking lots. This is because some students feel like upperclassmen, specifically seniors, shouldn’t have to park all the way up at the second lot in front of the middle school.
Some of the students in Mr. Huggins’ English class have been looking into getting this new idea passed. Meaghan Edwards, a student in Huggins’ class, explains it as a “color coordinated parking system where seniors will get reserved parking in the front row of the first parking lot. And once the spaces are taken, then the sophomores will have to go up to the second lot to park.”
The colored parking passes will have to match the grade of the student to which it is assigned. If a student is found parking in the wrong spot, there will be a series of fines, and if further action needs to be taken, a pass will be taken from a student after three tickets.
The class will be preparing to present this idea to administration in the near future, and hopefully next school year Forbush will have a new parking system.
