Schools often discourage parents the first few days because it disrupts getting all of the children into a daily routine. They have had fun all summer and now they have to adjust to structure again. When you have 50 parents roaming the school it disrupts the performance of the class and the ability for the teachers to establish a relationship with the children. If a teacher can not control her class from day one she will lose the respect of the children and some will walk all over her and make it a difficult year. I would suggest going back up to the school today and demanding the ability to tour the school. If the receptionist says no I would go over her head. It is better to do it today than try the first day of school.
My youngest starts kindergarten next week. Parents are not permitted in the school because it will be difficult for the children. You know cutting the old apron strings. So we stand outside and video tape them getting off the bus and lining up for school with their new teacher. We are going to the meet the teacher tonight that way they tour the school, etc.
I volunteer ALOT at my kids school. After the first week the school encourages things like coming and having lunch with your children, assisting the teacher, etc. You may want to go to the meet the teacher thing and volunteer. it will set a nice repore with the school and they will welcome your child with open arms.
