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."
The procedures for parent "pick-up" after school are virtually the same as last year. Parents or other designated adults line up their vehicles on West Hemlock Avenue and one-by-one enter the east parking lot at the school. With children safety inside, the vehicles exit on West Hemlock Avenue and turn right only toward South Fraley Street.
Lorenzo said the main change in the procedures calls for the children to remain inside the school at dismissal rather than stand outside.
Using information on the forms completed Thursday, the school district will prepare placards with the last name of the students to be picked up.
