On Tuesday, November 3, parking spot decals were distributed to juniors who returned to the CCHS campus and have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher. Earlier this year, seniors who were planning on coming to campus were able to purchase their parking spots and paint them, yet the GPA requirement was only a 2.0.
“The minimum GPA for juniors to be able to purchase a parking spot is usually 3.75,” Grade 11 Assistant Principal Robert Herzog said. “But we lowered it this year because we want to fill up the parking lot. We don’t want people to drive by the school and see an empty parking lot and wonder why they were unable to buy a spot for themselves.”
Spots are being sold for $60 and there is still availability. After all of the necessary forms are filled out and the spot is purchased via the school’s online store, a confirmation email is sent to the recipient, stating a time and date for them to pick up their decal on campus.

“If I were on campus now and I needed to buy a spot, I would feel so grateful and satisfied,” junior Taj Thomas said. “Not everyone has the normal GPA needed to buy one, so I think it’s great that more people have that opportunity.”
Five spots have been sold so far to on-campus juniors.
“As a junior, I agree with how the parking system is working right now,” junior class president Harris Aversa said. “I feel those who are currently at school should be prioritized, since they are actually going to school, but I hope we get back to school soon and everyone can get their spots.”
At the moment, remote learning is mostly being done at students’ homes, rather than at the school itself. However, the school district is discussing the return of all students to campus sometime in January.

The fate of those who wish to buy parking spots who are not actively on campus for the second quarter of the school year is still unknown.
“We will cross that bridge when we get to it,” Herzog said. “I assume we will hold sales again for those who need a spot when returning to campus becomes mandatory.”
As of now, there is no information regarding spots in the future. The details are still up for discussion.
“As long as we have spots available, we will continue sales for those who need them,” Herzog said. “It looks like we won’t be running out of space any time soon.”
