The End of Another School Year!

Wow, McKinley families, this is the very last newsletter of the school year! We’ve made it through a year like no other, and we couldn’t have done it without your support. We hope all of our families have a wonderful and safe summer break, and we’ll see you again in August! Families can keep an eye on our website for back-to-school information coming out in July.

Please keep in mind that our main office closes for summer at 3:00pm on next Tuesday, June 1. We’ll reopen on Friday, July 30!

In Case You Missed It: May 25 Principal’s Update

We are finally wrapping up this rollercoaster of a year! We want to extend a HUGE thank-you to our families for your support and encouragement, for cheering us on when we didn’t know if we would make it through this year, and for the endless gifts of coffee! Everything you do for our staff helps us to serve your children the best we can. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  

Please read the full message here so you know what to expect for the 2021-2022 school year!
