    Dear Parents,

    On behalf of the staff at McKinley Middle and High Schools, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year!  We are looking forward to a school year filled with learning, social growth, and positive social experiences.  As the summer wraps up, the McKinley teachers and staff will be very busy getting ready to provide these experiences for your child. 

    We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our students need support from both the home and school.  As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We look forward to working together this year for the success of all McKinley students.
    We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

    • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
    • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers. (Please monitor progress with Parent Portal)
    • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
    • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
    • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and be college or career ready by graduation time
      As a school, we will:
    • Provide your child with a rigorous and stimulating curricular experience
    • Support your child through positive behavior interventions
    • Communicate on a regular basis
    • Encourage your child to be a lifelong learner and someone who contributes in a positive manner to society
      It is very important that you and your child(ren) are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.  School handbooks and the SLPS “Parent Information Guide & Student Code of Conduct” will be distributed the first week of  school.  Please review these with your child at the beginning of the year and periodically throughout the year.  Additionally, the McKinley web page is a great way to keep track of what is going on at our school.  We will make efforts to keep the calendar updated on a regular basis.  (Middle School and High School   Find more information under the headlines at the bottom of our webpages.

  • New Vaccination Required!


    Before our 7th grade and 11th grade students start 8th and 12th grade (respectively) in 2017-2018, they must receive a vaccine against meningitis, an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. 


    Students entering 8th grade must also receive the Tdap vaccine, so parents can get them done during the same visit to the doctor. If your student going into the 12th grade received the first meningitis immunization at age 16 or later, a second one will not be needed. Otherwise, two are required for 12th grade students. Please have this immunization done as soon as possible, and make sure your School Nurse receives a copy. Please contact your School Nurse or the Nurse Coordinator at 314-345-4401 for questions.
