The staff who answer the phone don't provide his/her name. As a parent, I'm treated as if I'm not welcome at the school and I'm not to speak unless spoken to. I have to call the school numerous times to request the same information. Before the beginning of the school year, I called numerous times to find out ahead of time, when meet the teacher night was and was told they didn't have a date set yet. I found out about the date the day before. It's no surprise there is such a poor turn out for meet the teachers.
