Health Room - Extra Clothing Needed!
If your student has outgrown their clothing (sweatpants, leggings, t-shirts), please consider donating some items to the McKenny Health Room. We are in desperate need of spare clothing. Thank you!
It's Cold Out There!
During these cold winter months, please send your student to school with a warm coat, gloves, hat, etc. Don't forget to label thse items with your student's name, so that lost items can be returned to their owner!
McKenny Science Fair
It is time to get scientific! The 2017 McKenny Elementary Science Fair will be held on Wednesday, March 1st from 5:30 to 7:00pm. Each student participant needs to complete a Registration Form and submit it to their teacher by January 31st. A Science Fair Information Packet is available for help in deciding on appropriate science fair projects.
Are you planning a vacation or do you have another reason your student will be missing school for more than 1 day? Please fill out a Planned Absence Request Form and return the form to the McKenny office prior to the absence. The completed form will be reviewed by the student's teacher and school principal for approval of planned absences to be "excused".
Tardies and Early Dismissals
New guidelines have been implemented for the Elementary Schools in the Olympia School District regarding tardies and early release of students are the end of the day. Students will be marked:
- Tardy - 9:00 to 9:30 (30 minute window)
- After 9:30 (9:31 on) the student is considered a Half Day Absent (AM)
- If a family takes a student out early from school (before 2:52) it is a Half Day Absent (PM)
- If the child(ren) leave within the least 1/2 hour of the school day (2:52 to 3:22) it is recorded as an Early Departure.
Unless it is medically urgent, we ask that parents not check out their students after 3:00pm. At this point, please wait until the end of the day at 3:22pm for the student to be released.
