And no offense but your getting a ton of free advice from people that know alot more than you do about starting a business.
Out in the real world---people get PAID, and paid well for the freebies you have be getting from all sorts of people.
Check out what Graden alone would charge you for similer services.
Something came up that I think a business owner might need to think about and I'm a little more concerned with student safty IN GENERAL than I am with your hypothtical phone calls.
Call me crazy.
Maybe you should be a little less snippy with telling people to "stay on topic."
Were already 9 PAGES into what should be a relativly simply procedure.....discussing increasingly hypothetical situation I might add.
If people that are going out their way to provide you with free advice go out on a tangent a bit----isn't it just a little ungrateful to essentially say"
"Hey, what doe s THAT have to do with me making any money????
Lets get back to giveing me free advice on how I can make money for myself."
What throws up "warning flags" in my head is when someone OCD's about a single issue of running a business to the exclusion of even wanting to discuss other factors/potnetial problems.
The assumption that somebody has EVERTHING EXCEPT phone calls well covered is seldom correct in ANY business.
Such blithe assumptions are what is behind the staggering failure rate of any new business.
There is an old joke about lawyer's--the punchline being that when a person that makes $300 an hour wants to talk to you for free----you really should listen.
But that is up to you.
And BTW, if its a new school--what are you comparing it too???
And you don't really know where your students might be wearing their stuff either---course if all your students are gradeschoolers---then its less of a problem.
And there are a lot more people than just YOU on this site---might not matter to YOU--but if your in a differnt area--might matter to THEM--maybe.
