Parents started lining up just after two o'clock this afternoon (8/9) to pick up their kids at Cross Creek Elementary.
By the time classes got out at 2:50, cars were snaking into the road.
Assistant Principal Brecca Pope says pick-up is going fairly well considering the new school year just started yesterday.
Pope says, "The only thing that we ask is that parents have a pick-up sign that's printed from our office with their child's name and teacher's name to make things run a little smoother."
The signs are a safety measure to ensure a child goes home with the right person.
Thomas County deputies will be directing traffic during dismissal time for the rest of this week (8/8-8/12).
