We spent 4 hours at registration, from 10am to 2pm. All hell almost broke loose when a group of senior football team players cut in the ASB line (Station 4). It took a couple of 7th grade Dads to get them to go to the end of the line, but not until about 6 or 7 of them, including a couple of senior girls cut in front of everyone who had been waiting for so long. I'm not sure why the cashier kept serving them. Having everyone pick up kid schedules (which aren't actually schedules, just a list of classes... they get those the first day of school) and books at set times makes sense, but I'm not sure why everyone was forced to pay at the same time for P.E. clothes, when they were clearly understaffed. 1-2 cashiers for about 450 students? This would lead to rioting at Albertsons. Hopefully next year will be better planned out as far as the district cashiers are concerned? Or maybe we should bring a grill and some tunes and make an afternoon out of it???
