  • Thank you for helping us reach our school goal of all students having fewer than ten absences in a school year.  When students miss fewer than ten days of school, they are far more likely to graduate and succeed in high-paying jobs.  Together, we can succeed with students at school every day and on time!

Principal's Message

  • Tristin BurnettDear McKinney Families,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I am the Principal of McKinney Elementary School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at McKinney by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    The diverse student population at McKinney Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The McKinney staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improve teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Tristin Burnett
