    Contact Info

    I can be reached by email: natalie_mckinney@chino.k12.ca.us

    I am committed to responding to all student and parent emails within 24 hours on weekdays.

    *Parents can reach me through email, not the Aeries Parent Portal. I do not always receive notification of parents' messages.

    The Aeries Parent Portal (ParentSquare) is best for me to provide information to families. 

    *Students can reach me by email from their student account if needed as well.
