First Question...

The first question to ask a parent is:
Have you already discussed this idea/issue with your child's teacher? As soon as you do, I will be glad to discuss it with you!

Staff meetings do no have to be long, drawn-out affairs. Make an agenda and then decide what you can communicate in an email. Leave the idea/issue on the agenda, but at the meeting say, "I am sending you an email to update you on this idea/issue." There are some things such as "dates to remember" that can be communicated via email and save time at staff meetings.

When a teacher needs help with a huge discipline issue, that is your job. Teachers can take care of the small stuff, but the big stuff needs the big guns and that is you.

Good behavior and completed homework are responsibilities. Recess is a privilege. When you don't have good behavior or your homework is not done, privileges are lost. End of conversation!!
