In this situation, I think you politely tell the parent that you'd be happy to discuss their child's grades and behavior at a more appropriate, mutually agreed upon time. You can indicate that you need to gather materials and examples to have a meaningful conversation. You can tell the parent that you will reach out (via phone, email, or whatever communication has been decided) and give them multiple date/time options for the meeting. Be sure to follow up withe the parent timely to get the meeting scheduled.

I think you should respectfully reply "I would be happy to discuss your child's academic life between the hours of 7am and 4pm, Monday through Friday". I think that response is more than fair.
