With Edmond North being a 6A school it has been offered a stadium that is up to par with other 6A schools in the state. However, with this new addition the senior class of 2018 has been put at a disadvantage involving school parking.

The parking lot contains a maximum of 320 parking spots, including staff, and has been drastically oversold by around 45 spaces. This rising issue is creating conflict for many students who drive, but directly affects seniors. While the underclassmen parking lot has not been under construction, seniors are having to resort to parking in the junior lot, and many students have had their parking passes put on hold.

When asked about their parking situation, senior Garrett Crone gave an inside perspective on how the construction impacts his ability to effectively succeed as an ENHS student.

“When I’m coming back from lunch I’m always told to go to the underclass lot, which is a pain because I paid 60 dollars for my sticker,” Crone said.

Crone also shared his opinion on assigned parking.

“100 percent. I’d way rather have an assigned parking spot for everyday. If you play football you are closer to the football field, baseball, etc…,” Crone said.

On what actions the student body should expect from the administration to take at this point in time.

“To strip the people they sold to last of their parking spot,” Crone said.

With the increase in staff in the 2017-2018 school year, senior spots are being prioritized to staff only. Senior Brynne Sullevine shared her experience.

“There were plenty of spots and then they painted more, and took even more away – it was a little stressful,” Sullevine said.

She would like the administration to take more action.

“It would be nice if the administrative did something like giving seniors front row in the underclassmen lot, since we paid $60 to get a parking spot,” Sullevine said.

With seniors being placed at such a disadvantage, hopefully the new additions being made will improve the parking dilemma here at ENHS.The new parking lot being placed in front of the school, believed to be designated for staff will provide  more room for senior parking.
