The Lansing school district administration is meeting on Thursday to figure out if there's enough staff to deal with the current enrollment at two local high schools.

Parents with kids at both Eastern and Everett High Schools reached out to News 10 saying the schools don't have enough space or enough food for all students.

The superintendent of Lansing schools says the schools never run out of food but says principals routinely have to fix issues like overcrowding.

Yvonne Caamal Canul, Superintendent said, "There might be over-enrollment in one class and then under-enrollment in another so they will change the classes so that the kids can be in a class with a normal size of students."

The superintendent says parents who have issues with the school can contact her office directly.
