Important Information for Parents

Quick References for Parents.

Please call the attendance office at 612-668-3765.  State his/her name, room number/teacher name and reason for absence.

If your child is tardy, he/she must check into the office before entering the classroom.  Your child will be marked absent if he/she doesn't come in for a tardy pass since we do not know they have entered the building.

This must be made in advance in writing and requires approval from the Principal or designee.

School Closings (Weather Related)
Please click the link (on right column) for WCCO or tune into WCCO on the radio (830 on your am dial) to find out if Hale is delayed or closed due to weather.  Watch/listen for Minneapolis Public Schools.

Bus Passes 
If your child is to ride a different bus at the end of the day (i.e. - going to a friend's house), we need to see a note.  Please include the following in the note:  Your child's first and last name and room number, date, and who (first and last name)  they are going home with.  It is best to send the note on the same day and not a day or two before.

Telephone Calls
Teachers are not able to receive telephone calls in their classroom during the instructional day.  You may leave a message on their voice mail or, if it's a message that your child needs to receive by the end of the day, call the office and we will deliver it to the teacher. 

If you have any questions regarding your child's bus route or need to make a change, please call the Hale office at 612-668-3760.  If you need to speak to the Transportation Department directly, you may call them at 612-668-2300.

All bus riders are required to be at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival time.  This will help the driver keep on schedule.

Specific details for each of the above items are found in the Hale/Field Handbook.
