Yay, that is nice that they are at the same location! Goodness, if that’s the reason for no meet & greet, that stinks. Especially for the younger kids. But, honestly, we hear something similar for middle school here. They do a preview night sort of meet & greet thing, but there is all this terror of parents wanting to switch kids out of classes, that they do all of these avoidant things too. It’s just so bizarre. And stupid honestly. If you have a bunch of parents & kids wanting to do classroom switches, you #1) should have a policy in place to deal with that, instead of just avoiding. And #2) ask yourself why that is. If it’s truly an epidemic, the school needs to take a look at itself and find out why. Yes, there’s always going to be those few parents who want to switch because they are pains in the arses, but the majority of parents probably have legitimate concerns.
Ahhhh, to be in public school in America… 🙂
