Welcome McKinley Elementary Parents!

This page is dedicated to informing parents of the daily operations of our school.  Please check back often to see if there are any changes to our school’s regular activities.  To stay connected to your student(s) teacher, please create a Class Dojo account.  We use Class Dojo to communicate events and recognitions from our school.  You can also chat directly with your child’s teacher on the platform. 
School Uniforms
Families, please make sure your student is in a full school uniform each and every day.
Students are allowed into the building at 7:45 a.m. and should report to the cafeteria. We discourage arrival before this time as there is NO SUPERVISION. At 8:00 a.m. supervision is provided for grades Kdg-2nd on the small playground and grades 3rd-5th on the large playground. In the event of rain, students in grades Kdg-2nd will remain in the cafeteria to wait to be picked up by their teacher at 8:15 a.m.  Students in grades 3rd- 5th will proceed to the gymnasium to wait to be picked up by their teacher at 8:15 a.m.
We have three lunch periods.  Students have one hour for lunch/recess. When weather permits, students have outdoor recess.  Classes that have lunch the first half-hour, will have recess the second half-hour and vice versa.
