Parents tell News 8 their kids were being asked to kneel as soon as the bell rang each morning, as a safety measure.
Some parents told their kids, it would be okay if they sat cross-legged instead.
"It seems like something that little kids shouldn't be doing. It's hot, the cement gravel rocks, it doesn't make sense to make kids kneel," parent Brandi Powell-Espiritu said.
Parents complained, and say they are pleased with the quick response from the school.
The students will now be instructed to freeze when the bell rings, then slowly line up for class.
