As the weather begins to warm up, the McKinley Middle School administration would like to remind both parents and students about our dress code at McKinley. These are posted in the building handbook and your student’s planner, as well as the school website.

For those 8th grade students and parents who are getting ready for the end of the year dance and award ceremonies, please remember that dress code does apply to those events as well. Most importantly, strapless and spaghetti strapped dresses should be covered with a shawl or sweater while at school and should be at an appropriate length. If you have any questions regarding dress code, please contact the main office. Thank you.
