That is such a strange and rude entry system. Let's remember that all Palo Alto families pay property taxes and the school parcel tax...

I have been to these fairs before. A staggered entry system is a great idea. Many students start leaving by 7.00 pm so it is a great idea to have some people arriving later to avoid too much rush at the beginning and help with parking. There is no "first come get a better service", everyone is catered for, but if everyone arrived at the beginning it would be just too busy.
I also love the fact that the students can get there earlier than the parents, does this say something???

The entry system is probably driven more by practical concerns than "priority access." Kind of tricky to establish that a non-PAUSD student is in fact a PAUSD resident, since most students do not have anything official that shows their current address (unless they have a drivers license). If there were a practical way, it would kind of make sense - though I agree with the second poster that "getting in first" is not that big a deal.
