Mckinley Elementary Holds Public Tours

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

McKinley Elementary opened its doors to the public for tours Wednesday. The tours are meant to show the school, and to discuss the scheduled improvements if the upcoming bond passes.

McKinley is more that 100 years old and has a backlog of maintenance issues, including problems with plumbing and electricity. If the bond passes, the school will be completely renovated to make it safe, warm, and dry.

Cara Virostko, President of the McKinley PTA, says, "If I was a student at McKinley Elementary School, if this bond passes, I would feel like my education is important, that I'm going to a new school that has been cared for. It would make me feel like education is important, and that I am important, and that I am valued."

McKinley currently is over capacity, like many other schools in the district. Part of the renovations will add classrooms to ease that problem.
