My son is 5 and when he is at home it is easy to remind him he needs to clean himself after he goes #2. When he is at school though, he doesn't remember or he just won't do it, which makes his laundry...interesting. I know his teacher is very busy with the other students, so would it be out of line for me to ask her to remind him when he goes, to make sure he cleans himself?

I wouldn't want that responsibility as a teacher. How does he ask to use the restroom? In many schools it's a raised hand with a certain number of fingers. She would have to stop what she's doing, go discreetly to your son and remind him to clean himself, and if another child happens to figure out what she's saying your son is sure to be teased.
