New Student Enrollment . . .

New student registration for 2019-20 KG – 5th graders opens on May 1, 2019.

The registration forms for the 2019-20 school year will become available on April 22, 2019. (If you complete the forms prior to this date, you will be asked to redo this process.)

Once you have completed the online registration form and gathered the required documents, please contact the campus to finalize the registration process for the 2019-20 school year.

If you have an incoming student, please register them as soon as possible. Likewise, if you know of neighbors with an incoming kindergartener or if new neighbors move in near you, please help us share this information. It is key that we know how many students we have coming in so we can have the right allocations of staff!

The safety of our students, staff, and parents is the most important thing at arrival and dismissal. Please stay off your phones, utilize crosswalks, and honor the safety of all by obeying the rules of traffic and of the staff.

From Nurse Martin . . .

Medication Reminder!

· If your child has medication in the clinic, please pick up before the last day of school We are unable to store medications at the school during the summer and will dispose of ALL medications left after 3 PM on the last day of school.

· McKinney ISD policy does not allow medication to be sent home with a student; therefore, you must come in personally and pick up any medications remaining in the clinic.

· New medication forms and health plans are available from the nurse. Please pick these up before the end of the year so you can take them with you to summer doctor appointments and have them filled out and signed.
