New bell times at Hale 2021-2022
Monday, May 17, 2021
Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, Hale's school day will start at 9:10 am and end at 3:40 pm.
At their November 10 meeting, the MPS Board of Education voted to approve the proposed bell time schedule beginning the 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.
