MM900189251IMPORTANT: Our school will have a minimum day tomorrow, Friday, September 1st, due to anticipated excessive heat in terms of temperature, humidity and heat index. We will follow our regular minimum day schedule.

School will start at 8:30 (line up by 8:25) and dismiss at 12:15. Lunch will be served as usual.

PrimeTime has confirmed that they will start their afternoon program earlier to accommodate PrimeTime families. Character Builders is in the process of confirming their staffing and will be emailing Character Builder families later today. Please communicate your appreciation to the staff! If you have any further questions about your program, please contact:

  • Kymberly Juachon (Youth Program Site Supervisor – McKinley PrimeTime)
  • Alex Bell (School Age Site Supervisor – Character Builders)

I know this impacts child care arrangements for many of our families. I apologize and appreciate the revisions you are making to ensure your child is picked up at 12:15 pm. The safety and well-being is our collective priority and your support is appreciated.

The district will be making the determination for minimum days on a day-by-day basis. SDUSD will continue to keep our families posted via the following links:
