Hello McKinley Families,
It was a great week of school and the temperatures continue to drop outside as winter is nearly upon us. I want to communicate our winter weather procedures as it is becoming colder. Each morning, I make the determination whether we walk the track before school or come inside. The same goes for our midday recess. This is determined by the wind chill (feels like) temperature outside. It must be a 15 degree wind chill or above for us to be outside. Please make sure that our students are coming to school with a winter coat, hat and gloves. If there is a need, please contact the school so we can provide the necessary winter clothing. Thank you for your continued support. Have a great weekend!
We have school next Monday and Tuesday before entering Thanksgiving Break. There is NO School Wednesday through Friday, November 21, 22, 23.
