Crosswalk Volunteers Needed

As we all know, the traffic around McKinley can be a lot at times and brings about concerns regarding the safety of our students and families. We are looking for volunteers to help support as:

  • Crossing guard from 8:05-8:20 on the corner of Madison and Ellis
  • Crossing guard from 8:05-8:20 on the corner of Madison and Payran

Please get in touch with Carly Costello at

Morning Gate Opening

This is a friendly reminder that we open the PACS entrance gate at 8:10 am. Anytime your child arrives before that is unsupervised, your child will be outside campus until the gate opens.

Trex Plastic Bag and Film Recycling Challenge

McKinley & PACS will participate in the Trex plastic bag and film recycling challenge starting on December 6th. The school will be competing against other schools across the country to see if we can recycle the most plastic bags and plastic film. The winning school will receive a new Trex bench! From December 6th - April 15th (Earth Day), there will be bins at both entrances of the school for you to recycle your plastic bags and film.

Please know that this is only for plastic bags and plastic film items. Signage of what is accepted and not accepted will be noted on the collection bins.

Click the link to understand what is an acceptable item to include in the collection bin.
