 McKinley Family-

 Welcome back to the new school year!  We hope everybody had a great summer and are ready to get back to work learning their new grade level standards as well as being Ready, Respectful, and Responsible. 

A few changes this year to be aware of…

  • New Times
    • The student day is from 7:55 to 3:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
    • The student day is from 8:55 – 3:00 each Wednesday
  • Arrival
    • All Kindergarten – 6th grade students will enter the cafeteria doors in the morning. Door M along 149th is no longer the Kindergarten entrance
    • Pre-K arrival will now take place at Door M along 149th
  • Dismissal
    • Second grade dismissal will no longer be child-to-parent handoffs but instead second graders will be dismissed as a class just like the older kids
    • In an increased effort to keep our students safe, ECPD, crossing guards, and McKinley security will limit traffic down Magoun by setting up sawhorses. If you plan to pick up your students, please see our parent liaison to sign up for car pick up from the playground. 
    • Pre-K dismissal will now take place at Door M along 149th

On behalf of the McKinley faculty and staff, we look forward to another great year and are extremely excited that you and your children will be a part of it.

Word of the Week...

Now you can expand your vocabulary and impress your friends and family.  Each week a new "Word of the Week" will be posted.   Learn how to pronounce and say the word and what it means.  Use your new Word of the Week in class, with friends or challenge yourself and see if you can use this special word in your homework during the week.  Maybe you'd like to draw a picture to illustrate these new words.  Turn your drawings or illustrations in to Ms. Alvarez (Parent Liaison) each week.  We'll hang the pictures up around school to help others learn our "Special Words."  Have fun and learn something new!
