Message from the Principal

Dear McKinleyville Community;

Thank you for your continued patience as we work our way through these extraordinary and challenging times.

Our current priority is to support student learning by providing learning opportunities in all curricular areas. Please encourage your student(s) to continue to engage in the learning process; however, per current State guidelines, formal grades will not be reported at this time. 

Our primary resource at the moment is the utilization of web based enrichment and weekly packets. Many thanks to all for putting it together for our Comets. We are also developing a plan on how we can provide our students with technology needed to connect with their teachers and online opportunities.  If your student needs a device, please contact Mrs. Salata (Principal) at We will create a system of loaning the devices to MMS students. 

Please continue to check the MUSD website and your email for updates on the COVID-19 situation as it impacts our schools. Thank you for your support. The messages of encouragement we have been receiving have been nourishment for the soul.

Yours in education,

Elwira Salata

Middle School Principal
