It also depends on your definition of privacy, too. I don't feel that my privacy is invaded when I run into "school-people" during my private time. I don't do anything that I would be embarrassed for anyone to see me doing. Since I'm from here originally, too, most of the parents are people I knew before I had their children anyway. One of my neighbors used to be the transportation director. I've had both children of the family on the other side. Two of the three houses across the street have children who were in my class last year. They've seen me mowing the yard in my shorts & tank top. They've seen me walk to the mailbox in my housecoat and slippers. Last year a student who lives on up the road from me had a birthday party with about 20 students from our school (middle school). I was out working in my yard, and here they all came walking down the road. They just waved at me and went on. That doesn't bother me. I did not feel "invaded".
