GHS Petition Defending Student Parking on Hillside Rd Takes Off

On Wednesday, Greg Goldstein, the leader of Student Body President at Greenwich High School launched an online petition on change.org seeking signatures to “Save GHS Student On-Street Parking!!!” to be submitted to the Board of Selectmen, Board of Education and GHS administration.

After just four hours 549 signatures out of a goal of 1,000 were garnered.

The petition is as follows:

In the last few weeks, the Board of Selectmen has proposed eliminating all student parking along Hillside Road.

This will effect 72 students that will not receive a parking spot next year. Parking is more than a privilege enjoyed by GHS seniors; it is a resource that helps us excel in all of the amazing things we do in and outside of the classroom. It is a logistical convenience for our parents who depend upon us to transport both ourselves and our siblings to school and after-school activities. 

Please read the letter released by the GHS Student Government Executive Committee that outlines this issue in more detail.
