Code of Conduct

McKinley School Code of Conduct
This code was developed by students, parents, teachers and the principal of McKinley School.  The goal of this code is to develop and maintain pride in ourselves, our school, and our community.  By working together, we will make McKinley School safe, clean, and orderly at all times.
Basic Code of Conduct
All McKinley students are expected to assume responsibility for their own actions and to follow these four basic rules:
  1. Show respect to others and property
  2. Use good language
  3. Play Safely
  4. If you have a concern, tell a teacher or other adult
In addition to the above Code of Conduct and the District’s suspension and expulsion rules and regulations, we have developed other guidelines to help students in their daily lives at McKinley School.  They are as follows:
Daily school attire should be neat, clean, cover undergarments, and conform to safety standards. Academic Attire includes:
  • Solid color collared shirt
  • Solid color pants, short, shirts
  • Shoes with closed toe and closed heel
  • Hats and sweatshirt hoods may be worn outdoors only
Please refer to the San Gabriel Unified School District Dress Code for additional information in this area.
