    Dear McKinley Parents and Community,

    Welcome Back! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

    Our first event, will be an Ice Cream Social hosted by PTO on Wednesday, August 7th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. This will be an opportunity to reconnect with former classmates and make new friends. Please see flyer enclosed. Classrooms will not be open for visits at this time. 

    Please create or update your parent portal in order to see your child’s class assignment for 2019-2020. Class assignments will be available on the portal by August 12, 2019. Our district office will mail you instructions on how to set up your portal by the end of July.

    Our enrollment changes throughout the summer time with families moving in and out of the area. It is possible that further class changes might need to be made after school begins to balance class enrollment. We will do our best to keep any changes to a minimum, but student enrollment can vary. Please trust that we have worked diligently to place each child in classrooms based on individual learning style and large grouping needs, combinations of students and student needs. Every effort was made to create classes that are balanced and beneficial to all students. We are not in a position to honor individual requests. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

    The first official day of school begins on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 8:10 AM for all students. Breakfast is free for all students and served at 7:45AM daily.  We will be on an early release schedule from August 14 through August 23rd. Dismissal will be at 1:50 PM for 1st – 5th grade classes. TK and Kindergarten classes will be dismissed at 11:40 AM.

    I am honored to serve as the principal of McKinley Elementary School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, staff and students cared for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. 


    Grozelia Ward, Principal

  • Seeking Volunteers for TK & Kindergarten Classrooms

    If you are interested in working in either transitional kindergarten or kindergarten classrooms, our elementary schools are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers! Our schools especially need support for 30-60 minutes at a time in the classroom, during recess, and during lunch.

    Please contact McKinley's Parent Facilitator Jennifer Amate at jamate@slusd.us to learn how you can become a volunteer.
