After months of trial and error, one Maple Grove Elementary School parent knows the drill: get to school early, or wait in a long line.

Ann Hornback has to be in line to drop her daughter off at school at 8:30 a.m. — 15 minutes before the doors to Maple Grove Elementary open — because if she waits any longer, she risks sitting in a line of traffic nearly a half-mile long.

The line of eastbound cars running along Whiteland Road is longest between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. weekday mornings as parents drop their children off at Maple Grove Elementary, and traffic sometimes can stretch as far back as Saddle Club Road almost a half-mile away.
