Dear McKinley Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),
As we commit to fostering a school year to our students that supports them both emotionally and academically, we are diligently working to provide you with pertinent information. We are preparing for the “new normal.” Your partnership and collaboration are needed and appreciated more than ever. Please make us aware of all concerns. All staff members have to adhere to COVID testing prior to the start of school. We are also reviewing procedures and protocols of the building to make certain students and staff are adhering to the guidelines provided to us by the CDC and the St. Louis City Department of Health.
The St. Louis City Department of Health (DOH) has required the following guidelines for our schools:
All student learning for McKinley will be in person only. If you desire an online learning option for your student, you will need to complete an application. Please use this link to read about the program and apply https://www.slps.org/Page/43941.
No changes are allowed until semester per the district directives. Registration dates for students are listed below. Due to the need to social distance, we are asking that you limit the number of persons entering the building with you student. During registration, we will stagger admittance to the school to make sure we are adhering to the social distancing guidelines. Everyone will enter at door 12 and exit out of the main entrance doors. Masks are to be worn by everyone entering the building. This process has proven to be successful and effective with controlling the flow of traffic.
We will also update the school’s website with information so that is available to you.
