I’m all for school security. But this is ridiculous. Some schools are prohibiting parents from walking their kids to the classroom.

Officials in the HEB school district say they’re simply joining the ranks of many. “It’s very busy on a campus first thing in the morning, dropping off kids arriving for the day,” said district spokesperson Judy Everett Ramos. “So, being able to know who’s in the building, who’s in front, who’s deeper into the building, is very important in keeping our kids safe.”

The safest a child can be is when he/she is with mom or dad. This should be the parent’s decision, not the school’s decision.
