The doors opened and parents went forward like lottery winners, putting their names in for a chance to nab one of 130 spots open for kindergarten at Lincoln Crossing Elementary School.

For some, this camp out started Friday night. They came armed with admissions packets, tents, chairs, blankets, coffee and plenty of resolve.

Most parents say they want this school because it’s the closest to their home — and it’s one of the best.

Principal Kevin Kutz wishes it were different.

“You know, it’s one of those things you wish you had space and we’d love to have all of the kids in our community that should be here. But unfortunately, we are in the economy and the district is unable to build a second school,” he said.

Parents won’t find out if their child got in until April through the mail.
