On Monday, Nov. 29, senior Alissa Murphy came to school and found her parking spot was taken.
An unknown driver had parked in Murphy’s parking spot that she had paid $50 for and painted the week before Thanksgiving. As a first-time event hosted by the PTSA, seniors had the privilege to claim their own parking space anywhere on campus.
According to the administration parking in a reserved and paid-for space does warrant consequences and should not be taken lightly.
Although the other driver is unknown, and there wasn’t a hostile action taken, Murphy took matters into her own hands.
“I left a note so they don’t park there,” Murphy said. “I get to school late because I have swim practice in the mornings, so I don’t get here until 9:35. It’s nice to not have to park in the back and I like to have a spot waiting for me, so I was sad because I had to park far away.”
For seniors that want to get their own assigned parking spot there will be more opportunities to pay and paint their parking spots on campus.
