Dear McKinley Families,

 

We continue to have a safe campus!  Thank you for completing the survey about COVID symptoms and having your students wear masks! We still do not have water fountains on campus for safety reasons so please remember to bring a water bottle to school everyday.

 

Here are other safety reminders and announcements

 

PARKING LOT SAFETY

All parking spaces at McKinley Elementary School are designated for staff and teachers.  We have spaces specifically for visitors.  Thank you for your cooperation!

OPTIONAL IPAD INSURANCE

Optional iPad Insurance is available from a third party vendor, should you be interested in purchasing it. Insurance can be purchased now through October 3rd, 2021 and will cover the iPad for a calendar year. Insurance costs $29 and covers unlimited instances of damage with no deductible. iPad insurance does not cover lost devices or device accessories. This vendor is not associated with SBUnified and insurance is made available as a courtesy to families. You can enroll using a credit/debit card at the following link: http://www.worthavegroup.com/gpo/sbunified  

 

To pay with cash or check please come to the district office at 720 Santa Barbara St. from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday - Friday. Cash payments must be made with exact change.
