Welcome to McKinley!-02.pngDear parents,

Class rosters are now posted outside the main office! Please plan on lining up in  your child’s assigned classroom line on the first day of school, on the blacktop. The teachers will be holding signs to help you find your way.

We’re so excited to have your kids with us at McKinley Elementary School. Because the summer has been long, a few reminders:

The first day of school is Monday, August 29, 2016. We are starting a week early this year.

Please remember that each and every morning the campus opens at 7:45 AM for our students in our breakfast program.

The campus opens at 8:10 AM for all other students. (In the coming weeks we’ll share information about our Run for Your Life exercise program on the blacktop that will start at this time).

Short bell is at 8:20 AM. Students should start lining up with their class at this time.

At 8:25 AM the second bell rings. Students should be in line with their teachers at this time.

Class instruction begins exactly at 8:30 AM. Let’s start the year off with everyone at school on time and ready to learn!

On Monday mornings we have our weekly school assembly on the blacktop. Parents are encouraged to join us to learn about important school and community news.

School ends each day at 3 PM, with the exception of Thursdays, which is a minimum day.

Class ends at 12:15 PM on Thursdays. We’ll be sending out information about our After School Enrichment program on Thursdays shortly. Please stay tuned!

As you know, construction is ongoing on campus. Our principal, Deb Ganderton, is in contact with the construction project manager on a regular basis. Please expect an email this coming weekend that will let us know where to enter the campus for the first day of school. Your patience is appreciated!

If your child is enrolled in the breakfast program or purchases lunch through our cafeteria, you can check the menu here. Information will come home with your child about how to add money to their cafeteria account shortly.

We look forward to a wonderful school year with you!
