On Monday Oct. 8, students came to school to find the south end of the parking lot closed due to repaving. Unaware of the construction, students had to park elsewhere, in the grass or across the street at Countryside Christian Church. 

According to activities director Jeff Staley, the repaving of the parking lot was intended to be done earlier in the semester, but each weekend it was planned to be done, it ended up raining. As temperatures dropped, they realized that it was getting too cold to wait and decided to do it during the week on Oct. 7-8.  

Students who had difficulty finding parking spots were late to class, but were later excused by secretary Kathryn Burns.

“There were at least 30 students who came in late. I got to the point where I didn’t count as they came in and they weren’t checking in,” Burns said. “They came in the door and I told them to just go to class.”

The parking lot was finalized Tues. Oct. 8, and is fully open for the use of all students and staff.
