A student-led protest over painted parking spots in the Mountain Home High School parking lot is now over.
Roughly 100 students took part in a silent protest after school administrators said a set of painted parking murals, which students had purchased for a homecoming fundraiser, had to go.
In a statement released Tuesday, the superintendent said that while the building principal gave students permission, the project had not gone through the proper channels at the district level.
After more than 24 hours of protests, the school district superintendent released this statement:
The student lead protest at Mountain Home High School regarding student painted parking spots has concluded today at 4:00 PM. Members of the Mountain Home student body and school officials are working collaboratively toward a resolution to the situation that is agreeable to all involved.
