130. As a teacher, I have to agree with this. The parents come in for all small events.
Things that really don't matter, like, a copy-cat bomb scare. The parents are there, even though they know it's a copy of a fake bomb scare from the school down the road the day before.

We'll have everyone outside, safe and sound, waiting for the busses, and the parents come anyway, knowing that all the teachers are out there with the kids and everything is fine.

We could try to convince them that we'd get them home on busses faster, but that would be a waste of breath, Instead, they'll all come to school at it will take even longer.

Parents came in to get kids on 9/11 even though we were an hour's drive from the towers. Teachers rode busses to bus stops just to make sure the kids were all met by an adult. It worked beautifully, but, you'll never convince parents to let us do it in an organized way.
