We hope you have had a wonderful weekend! We are looking forward to seeing our Marshals tomorrow.


This week, we will have our first fire drill for the year. Your child's teacher will cover all the necessary information so your child is prepared and understands the purpose of our practice. We do one fire drill a month, so they'll be pros by the end of the year!

Have a wonderful week!

Visitors & Volunteers Welcome Back Into the Building - Friday, August 27th

We LOVE visitors and volunteers serving on our campus. All McKinney ISD elementary schools will welcome visitors and volunteers back into the building starting on Friday, August 27th. As a school family, our McClure staff will be spending the first two weeks of school getting to know our students, build relationships, and establishing routines.


We encourage parents to use these two weeks to complete your volunteer background check for the 2021-2022 school year.


Thank you for sharing your students with us each and every day. We look forward to seeing you visiting and volunteering in the building starting on Friday, August 27th.

Arrival Time:

If your student arrives at school before 7:30am they will need to go to the side doors in the carpool lane. These doors open at 7:15a.m. and a staff member will be there to help them in the building. The front doors do not unlock until 7:30a.m.

Dismissal Map

Thank you for your patience as we navigated dismissal this week. The beginning of the year is always a little longer for dismissal as we are helping all of our Marshals get home safely. A few reminders about dismissal. We were able to complete carpool by 3:27pm on Friday with no rain and lots of practice this week! Our Marshals did Amazing!

  • If you are picking your student up in carpool or parent walk-up please make sure you have your McClure student pick up number with you.
  • If you are a parent walk-up please park in the parking lot that is on your left when you pull into the school entrance and walk over to pick up your student. This helps with traffic flow.
  • If you are entering the carpool lane from either direction on Ridge, please do not block traffic on Ridge or the parking lots in the school driveway.
  • Do not park in the bus lane to walk in the building and pick up your student.

Early Pick Up

In an effort to maintain classroom management, maximize instruction time and minimize end of day confusion, we will not release students between 2:30-3:07 p.m. If you must change the way your student goes home for the day, please notify your child’s teacher via email prior to 2:30 p.m. to ensure that your student will receive the correct information before regular dismissal begins. You will receive a quick reply from the teacher to confirm receipt. Students will not be called from class between 2:30-3:07 p.m. for early dismissal unless there is an emergency situation.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PARENT INFORMATION

News from the Learning Commons


Hello Marshal Readers! We are excited to welcome regular library visitors back to the learning commons when school begins. Students will be able to browse the shelves for books and have opportunities to participate in library activities this year, including visiting the makerspace, shopping at the book fair, and taking on a reading challenge or two. Be on the lookout for information about digital books, resources, and programs in Marty’s Memo and the PTO newsletter throughout the year.


Technology News: Please click here for information about student devices in MISD for the 2021-2022 school year. Note a change that all K-5 devices will now be stored at school, laptops won’t go home nightly until middle school. Returning 4th and 5th grade students need to plan to return their charged MISD laptops and chargers to their homeroom when school begins.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. McKinney will be participating in the USDA waivers for free meals once again this school year. Healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost.


Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year. As such, McKinney ISD will process household applications during School Year 2021-2022 to ensure student eligibility for free or reduced-price meals during the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year


Starting on August 3rd, MISD will begin processing online applications, as well as accepting written applications. Food Service strongly encourages families to apply online this year, however, we will provide schools with paper applications. Every school will be distributed a minimal amount of paper applications for parents to pick up if requested. We are asking each school to communicate or post the following link in newsletters, social media, or other forms of communication http://www.mckinneyisd.schoollunchapp.com/
