That's really bad, and i find the whole set up so strange...our school has an open door policy. I would head to the school office or head teachers office to arrange an appt to speak to the teacher.

I agree with this! Go through someone higher up and see if they can arrange something. It shouldn't be that hard to speak with your child's teacher.

Thank you, everyone. I know, the lack of communication at the school has been tough to deal with. I don't know if it's just this teacher or not, but it makes me feel really helpless. I've contacted her politely, letting her know that I really would value her feedback and truly want to help my child succeed for her sake, his sake, his classmates' sake! When she ignores me it feels like she's basically saying he's hopeless.

I wrote one more email and will probably reach out to a higher-up if she keeps on ignoring me.

Oh that sounds creepy and weird to me. I've never had an experience like that. Parents are warmly welcomed into preschools and schools here.

I managed to catch her eye at pickup yesterday and arranged a meeting! I'm glad, I didn't love the idea of going over her head.

Glad you managed to sort something with her I hope the meeting goes well but lay it down that you want to be involved and the next time she sees fit to ignore your requests after expressing there is a problem then you will go to the head master because it's out of order

Before you go there, find out if there is a reason your email was "ignored."

I know she's really busy. She DID see the emails I sent, and I had to send three and then talk to her in person to schedule a meeting, which is a little irritating, but I also know she's a new teacher and they're all busy catching up after a long break. So I probably will try to be less confrontational and see if we can just work together to make sure lines of communication are open in the future.
