-We will also have two Q and A nights In February and March if anyone has more questions about Mckinley School. (Those will be posted at a later date)

Please note that if you already attend McKinley school, you need to do one of two things.

1. NOTHING you are already a Petaluma City school student, and/or you live in the McKinley attendance area. You will be automatically moved to the next grade level. If you live in another PCS School's attendance area, for example, you live in the Grant attendance area, but you go to McKinley, you do not need to do anything. This is because you are already a Petaluma City Schools student.

2. If you come from another school district, you will have to get the interdistrict form filled out again. This is something you have to do every year. You will not lose your spot, but we need the form filled out by May. Here is a link to the form: Remember, if you have moved outside of PCS this school year, you will also have to fill this form.

Finally, We need everyone to let us know if you are returning next school year. Here is a link to the google form. Please fill out ASAP only one form per family.

Be A Mentor: Are you invested in supporting young people to achieve their highest potential? If so, Mentor Me would love to match you with one of our 100+ waitlisted young people! Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them. As a volunteer mentor, you walk alongside a young person to let them know they matter! Please see our flyer for more information or visit our website:

Donate: Can't commit to mentoring, but still want to uplift mentorship in our community? Your financial support is vital. We continue to match students with mentors and have found that this personal, individualized relationship has been invaluable in ensuring that our students feel connected, especially during these times of isolation and social distancing. Please consider donating to Mentor Me online: or send a check to Petaluma People Services Center, Mentor Me (mail to 1500 South Petaluma Blvd., Petaluma, CA 94952).

Thank you!
