Many parents who attended a special meeting Saturday on the issue were upset that an earlier survey didn't allow respondents to pick an early Friday dismissal as a preferred choice. Thompson said the committee will discuss survey questions at a meeting Tuesday, and that parents might see the survey by the week's end.
