< I discovered just before the holiday break (when a student was
having a problem with an assignment before finals) that the students are not
allowed (or are discouraged from contacting the teachers). >

Wow--we couldn't wait to use this avenue for kids to contact us.  This year
we extended the privilege to 7's (we're k-12). I have had kids e-mail me
even in the summer, especially about databases.  I understand privacy
issues, but a teacher who doesn't care to be contacted by email can let her
kids know that. I love it when kids take the initiative to ask me--they know
I'll answer, and I don't care what time it is when they write! (Maybe we
were happy to supply this service because in the past parents/kids have
occasionally called us at home. Most folks I know would definitely choose
email over that!) It would be interesting to poll the teachers at your
school to see how they feel about it.
