Re: A note from your child's teacher...
I cleaned for a pedi. She gave her personal cell to her patient's parents. The vet we took our cat to had after hours calls directed to his home. The plumbers also gave their home numbers as the after hours emergency contact. I had to call a locksmith to open my car at 5am. My kiddo was locked in the car with my car keys. My knee accidentally hit the automatic lock when I got out. I didn't realise until the door was shut. The number for the locksmith was either his home number or was routed there after hours.

So comparing this with the teachers says that yes it is okay to call after hours.
Now honestly I have never wanted to call a teacher after hours. I have though had a teacher call me. I think it was around 3:30-4:00.
For every week day my kids get off of school I am guaranteed at least 2 automated phone calls from the superintendent of our local schools. Next week I will get at least one call for each child I have in school. For some reason I sometimes get 2 from the principal and 2 from the super. These calls will come in any time between 8am and 9 pm.
