Weather doesn’t deter teens from driving golf carts to school

When students returned to school second semester, they were able to do something their predecessors had wanted to do for years– drive their golf carts to school and park in the newly constructed golf cart lot.

So far, around 25 hardy students have chosen to pioneer this new way of getting to school braving everything from freezing temperatures to stormy, rainy mornings and afternoons. The lot, located adjacent to the new cheer facility,  holds 250 carts, so many spaces are still available.  A parking pass for this semester is $30 and can be purchased in the front office.

The Prowler talked to some of these students to find out their reasons for driving their carts to school and to gauge how well the new path system, which includes a crossing over Redwine Road, is working.
