The principal at my school informed the teachers that he would not make any opening comments to parents at our upcoming Open House. Parents are to go directly to the classroom in order to hear a presentation given by their child's teacher. This will last for approximately 30 minutes. There will be a l0 minute break in which parents can go to another classroom to hear the teacher give their 30 minute presentation again. (this is being done so parents that have two children in the school can visit each classroom) Our school is only 1st - 4th. Never in my 20 plus years of teaching has a principal not spoken to parents at an Open House. We teachers feel that he is setting a poor example of how our school is being run. Do other schools have an Open House where the principal "is absent"?
