Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio There might be more moms and dads at one salt lake school than any other school in the state, or the nation.

Here come the parental police. Eighty Spanish-speaking moms and dads are walking the halls at West Lake Junior High to keep the kids in class and on time.

But how do the students like the home front on their "school front?" "It depends on the kid. So, yes, some kids respond well to that and see that their parents are here," said Assistant Principal Michele Callaghan.

Callaghan says the parents signed up, not through phone calls or e-mail messages, but the old-fashioned way: word of mouth.
