*This year, the School District lost over $700,000 due to declining attendance throughout grades TK-12. These losses directly affect McKinley.
*We need your help in turning this trend around. If you are taking a family vacation during the 2019-20 school year, please take it in April and/or May.
*Every day your child is absent, whatever the reason, reduces the school budget between $50-$55 per absence, per day.
*On April 1, attendance reporting changes. Any missed days between April and May reduces the school budget by approximately $1 per student, per day. Yes... $1. Please help us avoid cutting programs by scheduling your vacations accordingly.
*If you are going to be gone for 5 or more consecutive days, you are eligible to sign up for independent study. Each school has an independent study coordinator that can assist you. Only completed independent study packets receive full attendance credit.
