    Greetings McKinley Families,


    I hope this email finds you well.  We are experiencing feelings of uncertainty and it is my hope we are supporting each other mentally and emotionally. Those of you who work essential jobs and are servicing us at this critical time, THANK YOU.  This time has shown us how important we all are in maintaining one another. Everyone does not react to things the same and that is ok.  It is ok to feel how you feel as we are human and we respond differently.  There are concerns we feel for ourselves, our families, friends, our country and the world. 


    We had a conference call with the superintendent today and please understand that our biggest concern is supporting our families at this time.  While we believe in academics, we also believe that the well-being of our students and their families takes precedence.  We will be providing grab and go bags of food at several school sites that may be found on the district’s webpage and there will be instructional packets for enrichment as an option if you decide to use them for your students but they are not mandated.


    We appreciate your understanding as our teachers adjust with their families as well.  They as well are uncertain of where to begin and how to best provide for their families and serve their students simultaneously.  We will keep you updated on how we plan to carry out instruction for the remainder of this time once a detailed plan is completed by our central office staff and we will make certain it fits the needs of the students at McKinley. Currently the enrichment packets are available and no work will be graded.  Again our academic office is taking the lead and speaking with teachers on how to best provide instruction. 


    As I receive additional information I will be sure to communicate it with you.  Please be safe and focus on what’s most important at this time: health, food, shelter and our loved ones!


    To the class of 2020,


    I know this is not how you imagined completing your final year of high school but be encouraged. It is my hope that you all continue to be the amazing scholars you have proven to be this year.  We will provide additional updates as they become available.  We are addressing concerns daily and at this time I am not able to communicate dates regarding any of our final activities.


    Wishing you well,


    Nakia V. King Ed.S

    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.
