Click here for the full October Newletter!

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks! Our new library is up and running and we are very excited to be in our new space. Students are using our library during open check out in the morning and during library class.
Our Safe Room is now ready for us to use and it gives us even more assurance with our safety of students. Our new secondary shelters (if we are already in lock-down in the saferoom) are the boys and girls restrooms by the gym. Once we report to the saferoom, we will only unlock our doors and release students back to classrooms once we receive the all clear from the district.
As a Science and Technology school, we feel it’s important for us to live our Magnet theme, so we will begin to publish our monthly School newsletter and Specials newsletter (Paw Print) electronically. This will be our last paper copy, but you will still receive a paper copy of our monthly school calendar. Our newsletters are always published to our website, but we will email the electronic copy to you on the first day of the month. You’ll be able to read it on a computer or on a smart phone.
We are gearing up for Conferences, so please make sure you are communicating with your child’s teacher to schedule a time to meet and discuss your student’s progress.
During parent/teacher conferences, we would like parents to stop by the computer lab to take a brief on-line survey. This quick survey will give the McLean staff information on how you feel about McLean and how we are serving you and your children. The results of this survey will allow us to serve your family more effectively. Thanks for helping us make McLean an even better school. We will also send you a direct link to your email if you’d like to complete it before you come to conferences.
Early Release – don’t forget…school is dismissed at 1:30 on Conference days. Please be here to pick up your students on time, so teachers are able to begin their conferences in a timely manner.
