What do you wish parents knew?

As teachers, do you send home those letters at the beginning of the school year explaining your schedule, policies and expectations from parents and students?
We got those from each teacher this year and DH had a bit of fun reading through them and "translating" for me "What she really meant was..." It got me thinking: What would you really like to tell parents?
For example, I imagine that my daughter's teacher might like to tell parents that she has all 5 of the ESL students in her classroom this year, so they might be moving slower than planned.
I asked DH the same question and he said "I'd tell them I'm highly discouraged from labeling a student as Special Ed -- even when they clearly are -- because of budget restraints."
Is there anything you remain tight-lipped about that you wish you could tell parents? Or something as simple as "I can tell which parents read with their children and which ones don't!"
