Policy on students attending school events

Hello McKinley Families,

I hope this communication finds you and your family well.

Guaranteeing our students’ parents, their extended family members, guests, and community members are able to visit our school and have a positive experience continues to be one of my highest priorities. Rather it be at a basketball game, an orchestra concert, or any other event that promotes and celebrates the multitude of amazing talents our students possess, all visitors must feel welcome in a positive and supportive environment.

To ensure such a culture of celebration, we will continue to enforce the following expectation that went into effect last school year. This expectation pertains to indoor events only:

All students, including students from other schools, who are not participating in the event, must be accompanied by and sitting with a parent or guardian that is listed in Infinite Campus. If the student does not have a parent or guardian present at the event (athletic, music or other), that student will be asked to leave the event immediately. This policy is in-line with similar expectations at other middle schools and Cedar Rapids Community School District’s Kingston Stadium.

All decisions are final and at the discretion of McKinley administration or their designee. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Martinez (Principal), Mrs. Hanna (Assistant Principal), or Mr. Allred (Activities Coordinator) at 319.558.2348.

Thank you for your continued support of our students and staff, Go Bears!

Jason Martinez, Principal
