• About Family Services

    Through the Waseca County Collaborative for Families, Hartley Elementary is able to offer the services of a Family Services Coordinator. The Family Services Coordinator functions as a liaison between school, families and other resources. The Family Services Coordinator works with children and families in the schools and in the community as well as offers social skills groups to students at Hartley Elementary.

    A variety of parenting resources are kept on hand in the Family Services Coordinators office as well as information/contact numbers for resources in the Waseca and surrounding communities. Hartley's Family Services Coordinator is Jenny Sandbeck. Please contact Jenny at 835-0983 with any questions you may have regarding the Family Services Coordinator position and services or if you are seeking out any resources.
