I have a major complaint a school does nothing to stop it. After school you get in line to drive up a pick up your child. The problem is all these people that think they are too good to wait in line and late so the line is long they park everywhere and walk up to pick up children it is not only dangerous but not right they block car rider line a hold up people that have been in line waiting on their children the school needs to put a stop to it!!
