Hello McKinley Families,
We had a great week here at school. We are getting into the routine that comes after a few weeks at school. I am very pleased with the attention our students are giving to our 3 R’s Respectful, Responsible and Ready. We are really stressing the importance of the student to student respect that helps create a great school culture. Thanks for all your help in supporting!
Crisis Evacuation Next Week
Part of our ALICE practice this school year, we are required to take all students to our evacuation rally location. This location is the Duck Creek Lodge. We will walk down 18th St. and cross Locust St at Marlo Ave. Two grade levels will go at a time. The purpose is to show our students where we would meet if an emergency evacuation would take place.
Monday, September 23rd (4th and 5th grade)
Wednesday, September 25th (2nd and 3rd grade)
Friday, September 27th (Kindergarten and 1st grade)
