At Hayes Elementary School, we are known for our high expectations for all; our safe, caring and nurturing environment; and our programs of academic excellence. Together, we continue to provide Fridley students with the best education possible!
We are proud to be a Minnesota School of Excellence and an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. We believe every student can learn. We believe in a positive and productive environment where all learning is valued. Students are given opportunities to grow in a creative, sensitive, and mutually respectful atmosphere, which fosters the importance of each individual.
We invite you to become part of this exciting journey. If you have any further questions about Hayes or would like to set up a tour, please feel free to contact our school office at anytime.
Fridley Public Schools is in the process of updating our strategic plan. It is important for us to engage families in discussion as we envision what our schools will look like in the future. We will be holding focus group sessions.

The first week of school for Fridley students was different this year, with a focus on building relationships and addressing the social and emotional needs of students. By introducing smaller groups of students to their new schools and teachers, Fridley staff were able to welcome families with a personal touch, building on a practice that began during the COVID-19 pandemic.
