All McKinley families are invited to join us for our annual Back-to-School Night event on Thursday, September 14 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm! Back-to-School Night is the perfect opportunity to sit down with your child’s teachers to learn more about classroom rituals and routines, curriculum, and school policies. It’s also a great chance to ask questions!
Teachers will offer two identical sessions. Families can attend the one that works best for them, and families with multiple students can attend both!
Please arrive on time for your desired session to avoid disrupting the presentation.
We are happy to provide interpretation services to families who would like them! Please contact our office at (720) 424-5600 or McKinley_Thatcher@dpsk12.org to request interpretation.
Interpretation requests must be received by 4:00pm on Friday, September 8. We will do our best to accommodate requests received after this date, but cannot guarantee services.
To support our families, we are offering free childcare during our Back-to-School Night event! Childcare will be provided by school staff in our library for ECE-2nd graders and in our gym for 3rd-5th graders.
If you have any questions or need more information, please call our main office at (720) 424-5600, email us at McKinley_Thatcher@dpsk12.org, or stop by our front door!

Attention McKinley students and families! We are trying hard to reach the new DPS goal of 95% attendance. Did you know that, in order for a student to have 95% attendance, they can only miss 7 days of school in a school year?
To start our year off with a celebration of attendance, any student who misses 0 or only 1 day of school in September will get to come to a DONUT DANCE PARTY in the cafeteria! We are here to support you in getting to school every day, on time, and we know you can do it!
Please refer to our September 2023 Principal’s Update for detailed information about school attendance policies, including our illness policies.
