Late Arrival Information
Please make sure your student signs in at the Health Office if they arrive late in the morning, even if accompanied by a parent.  The Health office volunteers will issue a late pass to class.  Late arriving students need to enter the building through door #2 or #3 on the northwest corners of the building.  All other building doors are locked at 7:35 a.m.
Safety Reminder to Barton Parents

The mix of school buses, city buses, cars, bicycles, and child and adult walkers is potentially an unsafe combination for us if we don’t have adults modeling safe decisions at all times. Please observe the following:

  • Children dropped off on the opposite side of the street to school should always be walked to the closest intersection to get onto the school grounds. No one, even with an adult, should cross Bryant, 43rd Street, or Colfax between buses and cars. Cross streets at intersections only.
  • School drop-offs and pick-ups should take place only on 43rd St. and Colfax Ave. No school-side drop-offs or pick-ups should occur on Bryant because the traffic both ways is too intense. School side on 43rd St. is best.
  • Parents should not pull into the staff parking lot in the morning. The pulling in, backing up, and then subsequent turning on to Bryant exacerbates an already unsafe situation for our students and families walking to school.
  • Rather than drive, put your child on the bus in the morning. It is safer and results in fewer cars driving to school.

Unfortunately, there have been accidents in past years involving our students. Please take time to commit the safety expectations above to your habits for morning drop­‐off and afternoon dismissal. This will help us keep all children’s safety an important community value.

Winter Weather

School will be open every school day unless there are severe weather conditions (cold, snow or ice). In the event of a school closing, announcements will be made before 7:00 AM on local radio and TV stations. Please listen to one of the following:

  • WCCO AM (830)
  • WCCO-TV (4)
  • KBEM-FM (88.5)
  • KSTP-TV (5)
  • KARE-TV (11)

Do not call the school. Check the radio or TV and if there is no announcement, school is open. If weather is severe but not impassable, we ask that you use your own judgment about sending your child to school. Age of the child and special health problems should be considered. Because buses might be running late in bad weather, be sure your child is dressed warmly and instruct your child to come inside if the delay is too long.
