BRIDGEPORT - Parents at James Curiale School in Bridgeport are upset with a new policy that they say negatively affects their kids' safety.

Parents say they are outraged because they are no longer allowed to escort their children inside James Curiale School at the start of the school day. They say they are worried the school is not supervised well enough for the change to be safe.

The school sent home a note a few weeks back notifying families of the change. It says the school didn't want parents standing in and congesting the hallways.

A representative from the superintendent's office wouldn't talk on camera, but says the district is looking into the issue. Parents say they met with district officials today and will do so again tomorrow. They say that meeting will be different because Curiale's principal will also be there.
