Hello McKinley Families,
Our 11th annual Multicultural Day was a fantastic way to cap off a great week at McKinley. This week the Davenport Schools announced how we will be making up our days of school that have been missed due to weather. The following changes have been approved to the 2018-2019 Academic Calendar to allow our district to make up instructional hours lost due to weather conditions: Starting Monday, March 4th the student day at every school will be 20 minutes longer. The student day will start 10 minutes earlier in the morning and student dismissal will be 10 minutes later each day. Beginning Wednesday, March 6th there will be no more early release on Wednesdays for the remainder of the school year April 22 had previously been listed as Spring Break #2 with no school for students will now be used as a snow makeup day. Students will attend school as usual.
Daily Schedule starting March 4th.
