Lynn Hale Elementary is committed to providing the best service to our students, parents and community partners. No matter how hard we try, a time may come when something in our school doesn’t work for you, a time when you question why a certain action was taken or not taken. The following procedure will help resolve your issues:

Step 1:

• Bring your concern to the person closest to the problem. For example, if you have a question about something that happened in your child’s classroom, start with the teacher.

Step 2:

• The next level will be to discuss your concern with the person who supervises the individual or department in question. In most cases, this is the principal (additional resources: assistant principal/ counselor). If you have additional concerns, we want to help you, and we ask that you work with us to resolve issues.
