At my son's school, they are very first name basis with parents and faculty... I find it weird.
Eta: students say mr. A (principal) and such. But, faculty doesn't fast that to parents. They'll tell me, "I'll let jennifer know then," instead of "I'll let Mrs. C know."
They were first name basis with parents and other faculty. Students address them, though, with Mr. and so on.

We all, parents and children, referred to teachers and staff and janitorial staff as Mr, Miss, Mrs.

That's so strange. I can not imagine my kids being on a first name basis with their teachers.Weird

It was always Miss or Mrs and last name. My daughter is in kindergarten now and they call her main teacher Mrs. and last name but the aides are called Miss Amber and Miss Wanda.,. I'm a teachers assistant and they do Mrs. and my last name. That would be a little strange just calling them by just their first name. :)

We live in a small suburb. Like everybody goes to church together, the one teaching dd in school may also be a Sunday School teacher at church. In fact in works out way more than not. So while DD may call them Mrs A. I will call them by their first name and when they are talking about other teachers they will refer to them by first names.
