The high school my oldest son goes to has a rule that a kid can't be picked up after 3:00 PM. The day I have to pick him, or my youngest when he starts high school next year, up after 3, and they tell me that I can`t, is going to turn really ugly. I have to agree with ForSquirel. This equals kidnapping. I have every right to pick my child up at any time I damn well please. Yes, I understand its a rule, but law trumps rules, and the law says its kidnapping if they are withheld from me.

The reason it was a "big deal" to wait for the cars and busses to finish before walk-homes could leave was because they stated in the video that that takes over an hour. If I'm standing in the school office and am required to wait an extra HOUR before I can have my kids ... bull-focking-shat.
My kids go to a much smaller school than this obviously but the policy here is that we the parents/guardians have it in the school records/files who is authorized to pick up our kids along with contact info and photo (in our case just mom, dad and grandma). If you`re on that list, you say, "Hi, I`m here to pick up _____" and they call the classroom and have the kid come to the office. Though it`s generally considerred better manners to give advanced notice that the kid will be a pickup that day and at what time.
It's the School Policy that ALL children being picked up by car depart FIRST, and only then can parents on foot pick up their kids. Amazing. The Super isn`t sure if it`s "legal" but it`s STILL THE RULE!!
@LordJim: Yes, they`re full-fledged Police Officers with a PC euphemism for a title.
"student resource officer" = School Cop
@Rick_S Telling a parent they`re NOT ALLOWED to pick up their own children is NOT a sane or reasonable idea. The policy was obviously made by idiots, and enforcement of it does more harm than good.
School is out, parent pick-up = don`t have to wait. The father is 100% correct.
