Stay Connected with McKinley School

As parents, we understand how difficult it can be to stay on top of all the school-related information that is sent out. Below are some of the ways that you can stay connected to make sure you are getting the latest information for your child(ren)! In addition to the suggestions below, you are always welcome to call the Front Office at 203-255-8318.

Infinite Campus
The Fairfield Public Schools use the on-line portal, Infinite Campus (IC), for all communication about your child’s academic progress, report cards, standardized test results, attendance, and more. This is also where you adjust your notification settings & contact preferences. It is extremely important that parents are familiar with and use Infinite Campus as the information is only electronic and no longer distributed by paper. Please make sure you write down log-in information in a secure place so that you can access IC when needed. https://campus.fairfieldschools.org/campus/portal/fairfield.jsp

McKinley School PTA Website
Our website, http://mckinleyschoolpta.org is the best source for all school related information! It is updated at least once a week with announcements, flyers, forms, reminders, calendars, lunch menus, and more. Information that is all-school related (vs. specific classrooms) that is sent home is also accessible on the website.

Principal E-mail Updates & Friday Folders
Principal Pearson sends weekly updates to the entire parent community. Please make sure you have a valid email registered so that you can receive these updates. Also be sure to mark e-mails from lpearson@fairfieldschools.org as ‘safe’ and check your spam folder if you are not receiving the emails. In addition, one day per week paper copies of flyers and announcements are sent home in your child’s backpack.

If you are on Facebook, our parent page is a terrific way to get information and reminders. It is also a great way to ask questions for immediate responses! Please search for the group “McKinley Parents Community” and send a request to join. Please note that all requests are vetted to make sure they are from parents in the school. This is verified, when possible, through the front office but if the name on the Facebook account does not match with the school listing for parents/guardians, this might make the approval process difficult.

Fairfield Public Schools & Peachjar
The Fairfield Public Schools webpage http://fairfieldschools.org, has a plethora of district information. Central office also sends out community information & flyers through Peachjar. Check your emails at the start of the school year to opt-in to receive Peachjar notifications during the year or visit www.peachjar.com to sign up.
