Will a teacher help setup playdates B4 school starts?

I want to invite a few girls (whom we've never met) to my daughter's birthday party on the 11th.  School starts the 13th.  I have the teacher's e-mail address.  Should I ask for help, or is that something she can't or shouldn't do?

 Is there anyway to hold off the party until after school starts? Personally, I wouldn't ask the teacher to do this.

uh uh....she won't be able to do that. she may not have them yet and even if she does, it's for school use. She has alot to prepare for, I doubt she could help even she wanted to.

It's too late for that.  Thanks for your opinion.  I've read somewhere that you should do this to let your kids meet some of the new kids and be more comfortable for school.  I hope I get some positive replies, but maybe not...

Ummm...... I think there is some kind of law against that (hippa maybe). The parents didn't give permission for their info to be given out to random classmates/people. You could be a child molester for all they know.

For a kid or two, I thought she might help arrange something.  I doubted she would give names.  And my daughter is entering kindergarten.  The parents would be there.  It is in a park at a shelter by a playground.  But I think you're right that I shouldn't.

I wouldn't ask a teacher to do that...don't want to start off on wrong foot. I'd just go with the friends you got; no need to add strangers.

Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable as the teacher calling new students' parents saying that someone wanted to invite their child to a party plus I don't have student info at home.

I don't think it would appropriate to ask the teacher.
