Survey for opening McKinley

Hello McKinley Families,

Santa Barbara Unified School District needs your help in completing this survey about reopening school for next year.  We cannot successfully start school without your opinion.  School and district leaders are currently working on three plans:

Fully remote: students receive all instruction at home

Hybrid: students will receive instruction at school 2 or 3 days per week and remote instruction on the remaining days.

Fully open: students will receive instruction 100% at school.  

All decisions will be informed by guidance from local and state health officials.  Please complete this survey by July 17.

We strongly value your input and participation.

Enrollment and Annual Registration

July 1, 2020

Hello McKinley Families!

The Santa Barbara Unified School District (SBUSD) 2020-2021 school year is arriving! It is now time to enroll and/or register students for next year’s classes! Students who are new to the district such as kindergarteners (even if they attended an SBUSD preschool) or transfers have to enroll. Students who have attended an SBUSD school such as a first grader or fifth grader from McKinley or Monroe must complete annual registration.

If you are enrolling for the first time to the Santa Barbara Unified School District then you will need your child’s birth certificate, verification of address, and vaccinations. If you are registering you only need to turn in your verification of address (only if you have not turned it into the office manager, Giovanna Benavides since May 2020).

Families may also use their own computer, cell phone, tablet, or child’s tablet that they received from the child's school site for the enrollment/registration process. Parents may enroll online directly from this link. Parents can also register directly on Aeries. Here are some helpful videos on how to register online through Aeries.

If you complete everything online, you do not need to visit the school office for the registration/enrollment process. However, if you need assistance or are having difficulty with the online registration, the office is available and will have enrollment packets on paper. McKinley Elementary School will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30AM-4:00PM to assist with enrollment/registration. We are closed from 11:00AM-11:30AM. If you need to visit campus please remember to bring all documents that were mentioned earlier in this message. We thank you for wearing masks and practicing social distancing.

Families may also call the school office at 805-966-9926 or email the office manager at for personal assistance. We are here to support you throughout this entire process.

We are also having a Summer Meeting with the Principal on zoom July 8 at 6:30PM.
