McCord Messenger

Updated September 3, 2021

Dear McCord Families:

I wanted to reach out and share my excitement for the beginning of the 2021-22 school year! We have had a really great 13 days with our students. I am certain that everyone is looking forward to the long weekend with cooler weather. I just want to remind you of a few things that are always on my mind at the beginning of a new school year:


Now that school has started, the Dress Code is in effect. Things that you might wear to the mall, to a cookout, to the movies, etc., may not be acceptable for school. This is all in the Student Handbook, but if you are asking yourself if it is acceptable, chances are it is not. One example of what is not acceptable is Crop Tops. The good news is we have acceptable t-shirts to give you in case you forget.


Parents need drop off students at the GYMNASIUM entrance, please. When you arrive at school, please pull cars along the blue curb, closest to Hard Road. You will then wind around to the side of the school for drop off at the Gymnasium entrance. DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF SCHOOL. This is where school buses will pull in to drop off/pick up our students. Also, please allow space for buses to pull through to the stop sign when leaving. Thanks for your help in keep our students safe while the get on & off our buses.


We are working hard to stay safe and healthy at McCord. We will continue to sanitize in and out of each class. Masks are mandatory for all middle school students. Please provide your student with a reusable or disposable mask for each day. We will have some at the school for emergency, but we will not be able to provide them on a day-to-day basis.

Look in the small black box just to the left of the door. It has the #31 in it. The bus has several other areas that have the #11 on them. Which is the correct number?

Answer: This is bus #31. Always look in the small box on the side of the bus.
