McKinley Academy Students

McKinley Academy Students,


We hope you and your family are safe and well.  We want you to know that the staff at McKinley Academy are working from home and we are here to support you, as you complete your UNM college courses this spring. 


All UNM courses have transitioned to online delivery, or will by the end of this week, this includes CCTE courses.  All students enrolled in one or more UNM course(s), must check their UNM email daily for instructor communication and UNM updates.  GMCS is scheduled to resume school on April 6.  Please check the GMCS website or Facebook page for the most accurate district updates.


Please reach out to any McKinley Academy teacher, to assist you with your online UNM courses for tutoring.  Our counselors are available for counseling and general academic questions.  Mrs. Kezele is working to assist you with any  books and access code needs for the 2nd 8 week courses.  The best way to contact any staff member is by their GMCS email accounts, listed below. Don’t hesitate to ask for help, if you need it.
