Help us connect our McKinley community with our new school directory!

We are putting together a private directory to help all our families connect with other families for birthday parties, carpooling, playdates, questions about activities.

This directory will also allow your class parent to send out email messages from time to time to your entire class about important announcements. You’ll have the option to only share your contact information with your class parent and not in the full directory.

Fill out the form once per family here:
