Plano parents camp out in the cold for school transfers

Posted: Updated:
PLANO, Texas -

Some people braved the frigid temperatures Monday morning hoping to get their kids into a new school.

The first day for transfer requests for sixth through twelfth grade students in the Plano Independent School District was Monday. Parents camp out in line every year, but only the most dedicated parents were out this year.

Matt Gonzales, who was hoping to get his son into Hendrick Middle, arrived Saturday with cold-weather gear. He borrowed it from friends who like to hunt.

"I did this last year. Same time, same channel. I had to do it for my daughter," he said. "This crowd is smaller than last year. It was wrapped around the building and all the way to the parking lot."

The district did open the doors 30 minutes early to let the parents out of the cold.

The transfers will be approved on a first-come, first serve basis.
