UNIVERSAL CITY, Texas (AP) — A San Antonio-area elementary school is getting parents to bring their children on time by putting the kids in detention if they're late.

Even kindergarteners are on the hook.

The parents of 6-year-old Brooke Loeffler tell KENS-TV (http://bit.ly/Zzo5Kn ) that their daughter was given two days of lunchtime detention because she was repeatedly tardy to school at Olympia Elementary in Universal City. Her parents say they have a newborn baby at home and are struggling to adjust their schedule.

Brooke was placed in detention after three arrivals.

School district officials say the policy has worked with most parents.

Universal City is northeast of downtown San Antonio.
