Mrs. Doreen Fischer

My name is Doreen Fischer and I am the Principal of McKinley Elementary School . I am extremely excited to begin this new journey in my career and to be able to work with such remarkable educators, parents and students! I believe that through collaboration and forward thinking Fairport Harbor Schools will continue to move forward successfully. My undergraduate Degree in elementary education was obtained from Kent State University and my Masters degree from John Carroll and Ursuline College. I look forward to working with the staff, parents and students to continue moving McKinley Elementary School forward as a positive learning environment, that encourages students to to be inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people.


Welcome Back Skippers and families! As we look forward to an exciting new school year, just a few reminders:

Please update the school with any pertinent health information about your student(s). This can be done online through Infinite Campus or you can e mail me. Feel free to contact me at any time if you would like to discuss something personally.

If your child received any new immunizations over the summer, please bring a copy to the school or e mail me directly. If you are objecting from any/all immunizations, please e mail me and I will forward you the appropriate paperwork.

If your child requires any medication to be administered at school, please complete the Medical Authorization Form on the school website. This form must be completed and signed by both parents and physician.

If your child requires an inhaler or epi-pen, please complete the appropriate form(s) on the school website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lunch Changes

This school year our McKinley students will have recess before they eat lunch. We have added a certified teacher to the lunch room rotation to assist our lunch monitors daily. Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Elmore will also be in the lunch room to monitor when they are available. We appreciate our community volunteers and parents but In the interest of student safety we will not have volunteers or parents eating lunch with students this school year.
