No email response
I have emailed parent many times about the student being bullied. The parent does not respond to email but then shows up in front office demanding a meeting with teacher and principal.

I would meet with the parent, show them the emails you have tried sending and ask if there is a more effective way you could communicate with them. It is possible they rarely check their emails.

First, I would make sure that you are in contact with the principal about the situation if the bullying problem is ongoing. Also, when the parent comes to the school, I would make time to meet with them and ask if there if is a more preferred contact method than e-mail. If the parent only wants to meet in person, I would set up a conference for a more appropriate time. I would take charge of the situation quickly, so that the everyone is aware and working on handling the situation.

Be confident that you were doing the right thing. Show the evidence that you sent the emails on specific dates and then just find a solution of the best way to communicate. Maybe send a form home for parents to fill out the best ways to reach them.

I would make sure to keep copies of emails to show the principal, maybe try calling the parents to see if they are receiving the emails? It is possible that they might not check their email regularly.

You should call the parents directly and set up a time to meet. If not you can call their work and see if you get lucky. Parents are such an important piece for students to succeed and trying all the possible ways to get a hold of them must be done.

You reached out to the parent about your concerns. Short of calling home, what else could you have done? I think you should go into that meeting with confidence that you did your job. Work towards a solution for a better form of contact so that this doesn't happen again.

I would sit down with the parent, show the emails, ask if we have the right email. I also would have called the parent after the second email went unanswered. Checking that the parent was even receiving the emails is imperative to the student.
