    Typically?
    Don't know if there are any principals on the board to chime in. But I want to email a few principals about job openings/interview requests and I'm going back and forth about times/days to send the email.
    I would love to send them now :blush:
    but do principals check their school email on Sundays? Is morning, afternoon, or evening best?

    Any advice??

    This will vary from principal to principal. My P usually checks hers several times a day through the summer. Once in a while, she has made comments during the school year that she didn't check it all weekend- this is rare, but she has 3 kids, so she is busy.

    Send them now. It really doesn't matter if they read them today or not, just get them out there! Good luck to you!

    The nice thing about email is that your message will be there in their inbox when they are ready to read it. Send!

    Sending the email late at night will likely get you at to the top of the inbox list. Most principals I know start the day quite early, and it is normal to check email first thing in the morning.

    I check mine several times a day, even when I'm not at school.
