    My two children have attended Meadowdale for this school year so far. (2005-2006)The Staff at this school are disrespectful to parents and treat parents as if they are a burden instead of partners in the education of children. An example is parents of Kindergarteners are told 'Parents GO! Only children stay.' Even if the parents are only trying to wait until school begins. I have offered three times to help at this school in any manner needed. No one takes you up on offers. All of this and I was a former school teacher. I never treated parents like the enemy the way I feel I have been treated.
