Calling students' homes will give most of them your home phone number via caller ID. I'd be questioning administration on how they will protect me from sales, crank or angry phone calls once parents...

I'm not sure if the elementary problems you encountered were during the only two days you were in...

My cataract surgeon

gave me the name of a company that did mail delivery eye drops for pre and post surgery. Saved quite a bit of $$ over a pharmacy. It's been a couple of years so of course I can't find the company...

Just heard about this site
