Yes! Check out meetup.com! I found a local atheist group on there in an effort to make some new friends because I hated 99% of my husband's friends (and now so does he, lol). We get together once a month to talk about whatever comes up, sometimes we watch a Dawkins video or something, and there's always intelligent conversation. We also chat through the email list function on the site (you email the group address and it gets sent to everyone who's signed up).

I recently learned that my son's "girlfriend's" parents are atheists and belong to the meetup group, though they seldom come to the meetings. And through them, I've learned of a few other parents in the school who are atheists as well. It's all about networking, you just have to find a place to start. Chances are, your child already has atheist friends and you just don't know it.
