This made me smile. Ran up against similar issues when visiting a class as a school governor.

Yeah, when I did classroom work I checked. One slip and there goes your credibility. Actually, I used to tell my students that every time they misused an apostrophe a fairy would die.

Parents really ought to return letters & teaching materials with the errors circled in red, marks given out of ten, & comments. You know the sort of thing; "See me after school - please telephone to make an appointment." etc...
