Good day,

I hope this email finds you and your loved ones well. Unfortunately, we have just been informed that our plans to distribute the senior packages on Wednesday, June 24th and Thursday, June 25th at McKinley has to be cancelled in accordance with the Department of Education protocols. We are just as upset as all of you, however we have come up with a solution. On Wednesday, June 24th, McKinley staff members will be loading up their cars with 8th grade senior packages and delivering them to your homes. To ensure we have the correct address, please confirm your address against that of which is on PupilPath. If it is not correct, please let us know ASAP to ensure that we deliver to the correct address.

Additionally, as per the Department of Education, all refunds will be sent via certified mail to ensure proof of receipt. Refunds will go out by the end of this week, beginning of next week.


The Department of Education will allow book drop offs (novels, textbooks, and McKinley library books) over the summer. We ask that you drop off instruments during this time as well. If you were playing a sport and had a uniform, please drop off at this time.

If you received a device/computer directly from McKinley please return over the summer. If you received a device/computer from the Department of Education, you will receive guidance on how to return it.

I will continue to send you updates over the summer about returning the above mentioned.

We can't thank you enough for your understanding and flexibility in this matter. Again, we want to congratulate all of our 8th grade students and we look forward to seeing them as we deliver their senior packages.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Best Regards,

Danielle Noto & The Administrative Team
