I feel your pain! At our recent concert we had a literal mob of angry parents pushing our staff around because we weren’t letting them take their children without signing them out. We ended up losing track of 10 kids altogether – they could have been roaming the streets for all we know (which has been known to happen in this city)! Could you have the parents sign their children in with the teacher responsible for them, instead of one long line? Divide the students into groups (maybe you’ve already done this) and give a list of names in each group to one teacher on a clipboard. Then when the parent arrives, the teacher hands over the clipboard, the parent signs/initials, and the kid can go. It depends on your teacher/student ratio though.
