-Adjusting classrooms - need to split up 1yo and 2yo rooms
-Volunteers - need at least 10 additional per service
-Using iPads for check in during the line (have iPad person help to move families out of lines by opening and closing stanchion lines?)

-Shuttle service idea - need to make sure it is running consistently and a quality, positive experience to efficiently transport people.
-Looking into renting a 15 passenger van to shuttle
-Currently about 400 open parking spaces between gravel loop lot and FSU lot
-50 at FBMC for volunteers
-Microtel, Country Inn, Burger King, Walmart - 80 spots
-30ish spots on curb on Sessions Rd
-Idea of asking to part at Chick Fil A N Monroe and shuttling
-Need solutions for the mass groups
