Construction is planned to start in June 2020 and is estimated to take about 18 months to complete. This means McKay will be under construction for much of next school year (2020-2021). It also means the campus will be closed for the summers of 2020 and 2021.  Please reference the attached information from Principal Schoepper on the upcoming Bond work happening here at McKay High School.
