Visitor Safety Procedures

When visiting the school between 8AM-3PM, please state your full name, student's name, and the purpose of visit to campus as well as show your photo ID to the camera prior to entering the building. Thank you for helping us adhere to this district standard. Please also help us by not allowing anyone in the building behind you.

School Safety . . .

A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the uniform classroom response to any incident. Weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by all McKinney ISD schools and District Administration and staff. Historically, schools have taken this scenario-based approach to respond to hazards and threats. Each McKinney ISD classroom is furnished with the Standard Response Protocol poster that provides teachers with readily accessible response procedures and provides information during a crisis event. The attached handout explains Standard Response Protocol that is taught to students, faculty and staff.
