Stuck In Line

Long lines before and after school

The Issue

There are only two entrances and exits into the Coppell High School parking lot. Many parents and students have appointments after school, or would just like to get home after a long day. With the growing student body at Coppell High School, more cars pass through the entrances to the parking lots. Many of the parents who pick up their children show up early to get in line, but still end up waiting. Some parents are in the line for such a long period of time they miss appointments, or are late for work.Students are also late for class some times.


In an informal survey, four out of four parents say the lines are to long. They believe it would be of much use to add a third entrance into the high school parking lot. In a second informal survey, three out of three students claim to have been late due to waiting in the lines.
