A forum was held Thursday on procedures for parents who "pick up" their children after classes at the Kane Elementary School.
About 110 attended the 35-minute meeting in the Kane Middle School auditorium.
Linda Lorenzo, principal at the elementary school, said in a letter to parents that attendance at the meeting was "mandatory."
Parents attending the meeting received forms to fill out and return before leaving the building. More than 80 forms were "completed" and returned, Lorenzo said.
"I was pleased with the turnout," Lorenzo said. "I thought the meeting went well."
