Announcements and Events
IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: Tracy Unified School District is aware of and is monitoring recent social media posts and rumors warning that clowns will show up at schools threatening to do harm.  Officer Kami Ysit of Tracy Police Department has confirmed that there have been no reported threats to the Tracy area at this time, however she encourages anyone to report all suspicious people or circumstances to the Tracy Police Department.
While no threats have been received in the Tracy area, we are working with local law enforcement and continue to monitor activity closely. These types of behaviors and claims are disruptive to a school’s learning environment and the broader community. We encourage parents to speak with their students about the risks and consequences for any potential involvement in these social media posts.
We want to remind our families that threats are not jokes. Threats are considered a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment. In addition to criminal punishment, students who make false threats will be referred for expulsion from school. Also, school days lost due to closures from school threats may be required to be added to the end of the school year.
In the event of any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact the Tracy Police Department at (209) 831-6550. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for helping us keep our schools and our community safe.
Sign Up for Free and Reduced Meals
If your child was receiving free or reduced lunch last school year and is no longer receiving this benefit this school year, then you will need to complete a new lunch application. Please come by the office and pick up a new application. Thank you.
Please remember to call in your child's absence to the Attendance Hotline on a daily basis to report why your child id not in school. This is very important part of knowing that your child is safe as well as tracking attendance.

I am thrilled to welcome you back to McKinley Elementary School for the 2016-2017 school year. Our staff is busy preparing the school and classrooms for an exciting school year.
Student success is the goal of every staff member at McKinley Elementary School. We believe that teachers have a responsibility to provide the needed framework for parents to nurture their child's formal instruction at home. I ask for you support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure, at least 30 minutes every night, monitoring homework and progress. Asking your child to share what they learned at school each day helps promote communication within the family.
McKinley Elementary School provides a variety of opportunities for   parents to be involved in activities supporting our school. Come by the office to find out about these opportunities.
I am looking forward to meeting you at our Back to School Night on Thursday, August 18th at 6:00 pm.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. 
Mrs. Washington
