McKay High School Bond Construction Update!

Construction season is gearing up in Salem Keizer School District. Many schools are currently under construction, including McKay, and a total of 20 schools are expected to be under construction within the next couple of months. Just over $58.7 million is being invested in expansions and improvements at McKay, thanks to the bond that voters passed in 2018.

While schools are currently closed and many businesses are in different stages of reopening because of the coronavirus pandemic, the governor’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” order allows construction businesses to operate provided they implement social distancing policies. Our construction contractors are fully informed about the requirements of social distancing.

Highlights of the work happening at McKay include four new classrooms, 11 new science labs, a new library media center, a kitchen and cafeteria expansion, two expanded career and technical education program spaces for culinary and engineering, security improvements to increase visibility of the main entry from the front office and much more. The improvements for our school will be amazing!

Construction began in May and is expected to be completed early in the fall of 2021. Our campus is closed to visitors – Please do not enter fenced areas and obey all posted signs.

McKay’s office will be relocated to Stephens Middle School during the summer. Campuses will remain closed, and the schedule for staffing the school office will vary during the summer. Please contact McKay’s office at 503-399-3043 for information about summer office hours.

Thank you for supporting the 2018 bond that is funding the improvements at McKay to help relieve overcrowding, expand learning opportunities for science and CTE and better support students as they prepare for graduation.

The list of work planned, a photo gallery and other information about McKay’s bond project can be found on the district website. More information about bond-funded construction in Salem-Keizer Public Schools can be found at
