Believe and Succeed!
Happy New Year! The staff and I wish all of our McKinley Mustangs and their families health and happiness throughout this new year!
As we continue to move through the colder months, please have your child dress appropriately for school. Long pants, sweatshirts, sweaters, coats, hats, and gloves are recommended. The students will continue to go outside for gym and recess everyday as long as the temperature is above 32 degrees.
In order to make sure that all children safely arrive at their end of the school day destinations, it is very important that parents notify the main office before 1:30 pm if children will not be taking the bus at the regular dismissal time. This gives everyone enough time to make sure that children safely arrive at their homes or activities.
Tips for Success
Why is Parental Involvement Important?
In study after study, researchers discover how important it is for parents to be actively involved in their child’s education.
How Can Parents Get Involved?
As a reminder, students who qualify for free or reduced lunch are also eligible to receive free or reduced breakfast, which is available at all Stafford Schools. Please see the Stafford School’s web page to find the breakfast menus in the Food Service link. The price of a reduced breakfast is $0.30. Please remember that you can prepay for meals using www.payforit.net .
Also, if your family’s financial circumstances have changed since the start of the school year, you may now qualify for the free and reduced program. If that is the case, see our web site for how to submit an application.
