To ensure the safety of all students, we are amending our current procedures to ensure all children are dismissed to the appropriate people / or locations.  Any phone request to have a student go home via a different method than usual must come by 12:00 p.m. and be followed up with an email to the classroom teacher & the secretary at: Mary.MacRae@mpls.k12.mn.us  This will allow the office staff to double check the student’s emergency card for any exclusions.
