I've had 6 parents email me to meet before school begins to discuss various concerns, or just to meet me before Open House. I've never had this many requests! It's usually maybe one child, if that. The tough part is that teachers report back next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (am only), and our days our filled with meetings. So, I'm meeting with 4 families this Friday, which is technically my vacation time still. I normally wouldn't be going in to work that day. Is this normal? Do you usually have requests for meetings before you actually return to work?
