Yup, all the time. I tell students that if they email me up until about 10:00 I will respond to them that night. I teach middle school math, I want them to take some responsibility for clarifying and asking questions BEFORE they bring me a blank paper and say, "I didn't get it."

I also respond to parents as soon as I see the emails...if it's after work hours, so be it. I'd rather respond ASAP and get things heading in the right direction than wait until the next day.

I email out progress reports every Sunday night (when I'm done grading their problem sets that they turn in Fridays), so that usually solicits a bunch of parent emails late Sunday nights.
