WTF? Is this how it is by you?

When I take my dd to school every morning, we walk and stand outside her door to wait for the bell. With the exception of the kids that are bused or walk alone ALL the other parents wait in their damn cars with the kids. They are all sitting in the cars until the second bell rings when they let the kids out and drive away. It's beautiful outside, I'd love to get to meet some of the parents and help my daughter (kinder) remember the kids names. I'm just shocked. Is this how it is at your child's school? Do you do this?

Its hot as fuck here with the humidity even at 7am so most parents just drop their kids off or send them to school on their own, very few actually walk their kids to school, in the fall when its not so hot there are a lot more than walk their kids to school and they chat with the other parents.

We play in the play ground until the bell rings. I like socializing with the other moms. :)

 I have never seen anyone stand outside. Most people pull up, kid gets out, mom drives off.

I really don't care. I'm not interested in meeting other parents.

K no, but the rest of the grades yes. K seems to have the most participating parents and then after that they're kind of over it. Or seems like it anyways.

No. We have outdoor line up this time of year until end of Oct and again in May and June. Some parents do leave their children all by themselves in the school yard tho until the teachers get them.

We have a car line and parents are directed to us it. Are you sure you're not 'doing it wrong'?

We are asked to not get out of the car when dropping little ones off, makes things goes more smoothly.
