Message from Dr. Epperson

Well, that's a wrap on another school year! Thank you for partnering with us this year and trusting us to take care of your kids. It is our honor to teach and guide them each day. Best wishes to our 8th graders who are starting high school adventures. They are so ready and will do great things. Can't wait to see what they accomplish!

I will reach out over the summer as important dates approach, but for now, have a wonderful summer!

MISD Registration Nights for RETURNING STUDENTS

MISD will be hosting two evenings where parents can register their RETURNING students for the 2019-20 school year. Computers and registrars will be available to assist with this process. Please bring with you a current Proof of Residence and your “snap code” that you will receive via email the week of July 8.

** These evenings are ONLY for students who completed the 2018-19 school year at MISD. Any students new to McKinney ISD should consult the website for New Student registration dates.

Tuesday, July 16th 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Tuesday, July 30th 6:00 – 8:00 pm

These evening events will be held at Faubion Middle School, 2000 Rollins Street McKinney, TX 75069.

Yearly Proof of Residency

In McKinney ISD it is very important that we work to make sure that students are attending school in the appropriate attendance zone, understanding that it can be confusing. In order to accomplish this, we are requiring you provide proof of residence annually to your student's school upon enrollment. Acceptable proof of residence is one of the following:

  • A copy of a current or previous month utility bill (electric, gas, water) which shows the current usage on it.

  • A current lease (for 30 days until a utility bill is available). The lease must have the move in date clearly stated.

  • If you are under contract to purchase a home, a copy of the signed dated contract with the closing date is clearly stated. If the closing date is after September 1 of the current school year, monthly tuition payments shall be made until the closing date per MISD Board Policy.

  • If you have recently purchased your home, a copy of the closing papers will suffice until a utility bill is available (within 30 days).

  • If you are living with a relative or friend within the MISD attendance boundaries, an affidavit must be completed and notarized at the school as well as submitting a current utility bill.

This is very important, so please make every effort to provide the documentation. This can be uploaded when you complete the 2019 student registration. We can't accept past due or service cut-off notices. Students who are unable to produce documentation to verify residency by August 30, 2019, may not be able to attend a McKinney ISD school and will be subject to withdrawal.

Notes from the Nurse

Please remember to pick up any medication and/or supplies that your student has stored in the clinic at CMS.

All medicine/supplies must be picked up by the end of the last school day, May 30.

Nothing will be kept in the clinic over the summer.

Anything not picked up by the end of the day on May 30 will be destroyed.

We will give you all the forms you will need for next year when you pick up your stuff.
