Welcome to Hale School

Hale serves students in Kindergarten through 4th grade. Field, our paired school, serves 5th through 8th grade.

Family Information For Fall 2021

As we officially conclude this past year and focus our attention on next fall, I want to welcome all of you to Hale School for the 2021-2022 school year. While this spring brought major changes to Hale and so many other Minneapolis schools, we are busy preparing for the next chapter and excited to have you with us as we make this transition.  To guide you through the next couple months, I have included some different events below for planning purposes and encourage you to save the dates. I have also included some frequently asked questions and answers to assist as we prepare to kick off the 2021-2022 school year.

New Bell Times at Hale 2021-22


Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, Hale's school day will start at 9:10am and end at 3:40pm. 


At their November 10 meeting, the MPS Board of Education voted to approve  the proposed bell time schedule beginning school year 2021-22. The Board of Education is confident the approved schedule can meet the goals of:

  1. Increasing participation in after-school programming particularly for those schools with a higher concentration of families receiving educational benefits as this has been shown to have a direct correlation to student achievement and sense of belonging.
  2. Reducing transportation costs so that savings can be reinvested into the classroom.
  3. Improving on-time arrivals at schools.
