Winter in Minnesota! Wear Your Hats, Mittens & Boots!
Foley Elementary students will go outside every day unless the weather is exceptionally cold. Please make sure your child is prepared for the weather every day with boots, hats, and mittens. As you are going through closets and find snow pants, boots or mittens that are in good shape but your child has outgrown, please consider donating them to FES. We are always in need of extras!

Student's After School Schedule: Consistency = Safety
We can’t stress enough that the more students have a consistent after-school schedule, the safer it is for ALL students. In the event it is absolutely necessary to make a change to your child’s after-school dismissal plan, please keep these things in mind:
A written note sent with your child in the morning is best.
Changes must be made prior to 2:00 pm. The earlier the change is made, the better. It is hard for young students to understand and accept a late day change.
When writing a note, please print clearly your child’s full name and date.
Students are dismissed from class at 3 p.m.
Please send a separate note for each student. The notes are recorded in the office and then sent with your student to their teacher.
If your student will be absent from school, please call the Elementary Office at 320-968-7286 – then press 1 for the attendance line.
