Annoyed with parent

Conference day was yesterday. Today I get a message requesting a Conference. "I didn't see the message." Well, you knew not to send your kid to school so you had some idea of what was going on But sure, we can schedule one during my very limited planning time.

What a pain. My response would be something like this, "I am so sorry you missed conferences. I would very much like to meet with you and have 3 available options this week. Please let me know which one works for you. Thanks." My provided options would work for me. If they work for the parent, great!, if not...oh well, then I would offer to do a phone conference. I am at school very early in the morning and would be tempted to offer a conference at 6:45 am because that is a time that would work in my schedule.

I agree with All41, options or phone conference. Unless you reallt need to see parent I would not offer anything more of your time.

The only option I offered is a few minutes during my planning time. I am not giving her any of my personal time.
