Avid 9th Graders Visit George Fox College

On November 15, 2017, fifty AVID 9th graders from McKay visited George Fox University. They had the opportunity meet with an admissions representative, who went to GFU. They asked insightful questions about financial aid and what the community energy/atmosphere is like at George Fox. Then they met their tour guide and experienced the school for themselves. They learned about everything from dorm life, to study abroad, to engineering classes, and a campus-wide lip sync battle. Finally, our students ended their trip with an opportunity see what a college style cafeteria and common area was like. Some even sampled the food. Our kids walked away excited about what their future holds and positively impacted by their visit.

Principal’s Update November 15, 2017


Hello McKay Community:

I wanted to be sure to follow up regarding the incident this morning whereby McKay High School was identified in a graffiti threat up in Keizer.  Student and staff safety is always our top priority and, as a result, we err on the side of safety if there is any possibility of a dangerous situation.  We have worked closely with both the Salem and Keizer Police and our Security Department to ensure all students and staff were safe during this time.   Thankfully, we have never had a serious incident.

While today has not been a typical day at our school, I want to commend our community for how we came together during this situation.  We do not take threats lightly.  I appreciate everyone involved who took steps to keep our students, staff and community safe.  Again, school safety is a team effort and we appreciated the cooperation of students, staff, parents and police.

The Keizer Police are still investigating the graffiti, and if anyone has any tips, please call 503-390-3713 or email  Individuals can remain anonymous.  Reference Keizer Police Department Incident #17-4776.

Saludos comunidad de McKay:

Quiero asegurarme de mantener un seguimiento respecto al incidente de esta mañana en donde la Escuela Preparatoria McKay fue identificada en una amenaza hecha en un grafiti en el área de Keizer. Nuestra mayor prioridad es la seguridad de los estudiantes y del personal docente, y como resultado, preferimos ser precavidos en caso de que exista la posibilidad de una situación peligrosa. Hemos trabajado tanto con la policía de Salem como con la de Keizer, y con nuestro propio departamento de seguridad, para garantizar que todos los estudiantes y el personal docente estén a salvo. Afortunadamente, nunca hemos tenido un incidente serio.

A pesar de que hoy no ha sido un día típico en nuestra escuela, quiero elogiar a nuestra comunidad por la forma en la que nos unimos durante esta situación. No tomamos las amenazas a la ligera. Me siento muy agradecido por todos los participantes quienes tomaron la iniciativa para mantener a los estudiantes, personal y a la comunidad a salvo. Nuevamente, la seguridad de la escuela es un trabajo en equipo y agradecemos la cooperación de los estudiantes, personal, padres y de la policía.

La policía de Keizer aún está investigando el grafiti y si alguien tiene alguna información al respecto, por favor, llame al 503-390-3713 o escriba a  La identidad de los informantes permanecerá anónima. Llame al Departamento de Policía de Keizer y utilice el número de incidente 17-4776.
