The students, staff and administration of McKay Creek Elementary School thank you for visiting our website.
Dear McKay Families:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the McKay family and the 2021-2022 FACE-TO-FACE school year. Masks are required for everyone, but we get to have our family back together again and return to a semblance of normalcy with our students, so we are thrilled. Every Mustang staff and students’ well-being and safety comes first in all decisions we make. We respect that there are many different opinions about masks, but of utmost importance is to keep our doors open and our kids safe. I promise we will love them, take care of them, keep them safe, and provide outstanding instruction. So, on to instructional excellence, moving forward and helping each other with patience, flexibility & grace!
I am Sherri Kilgore and have the great privilege to be the new McKay principal. This will be my 25th year in education. The first seven were spent in PSD as an English teacher and the last 17 as principal at Joseph Charter School. For our incoming first graders, our new students, and me, McKay will be new to us! To our seasoned professional Mustangs, we will be looking for your leadership to guide us in joining this fantastic, special, amazing place called McKay Creek Elementary.

We value our McKay families, and we welcome your involvement! Communication between home and school is very important to us, so we have multiple means of communication, including phone calls, School Messenger, Email, Remind App, McKay’s webpage, and McKay’s Facebook page.
During the 2021-2022 school year, breakfast & lunch will be provided for free for ALL students. Students may choose to bring their own lunch from home. (Even though meals are free, we ask that you still fill out the confidential Free and Reduced application. There are additional benefits and resources for qualifying families).
When staff, students, and parents team together, we create a positive, safe, and excellent educational experience for our students. We look forward to partnering with you this year! Please know that my door is always open. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 541.966.3000 or email.
