Just like groupies waiting for concert tickets, parents and grandparents lined the drive leading into Glenbrook School Monday night in an effort to ensure their children would get one of the few openings in their grade when school starts in the fall.
Lauren Carroway made sure she was first in line around 5:30 p.m., after learning there were only two openings for second graders.
"The way we understood it is, it's first come," Carroway said. "If there are two spots for your grade and we're the first ones, our daughter will get one of those spots."
Kim Martin was prepared to wait all night, so her grandson would get one of 10 kindergarten openings.
