Dear Bennett Family,


Safety continues to be an important focus at Bennett Elementary. In accordance with the McKinney ISD policies and in collaboration with the McKinney Police Department, all McKinney ISD campuses will be conducting “Announced Lockdown Drills.” These drills will assure our students’ safety, if we should ever need to secure or lock down our building.


On Wednesday, October 10, 2008 at 9:00 AM, Bennett will be conducting an “Announced Lockdown Drill in coordination with the McKinney Police Department and the McKinney ISD Facilities Department."


Please do not be concerned if you see police vehicles and officers on our campus on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Each teacher will be going over our Lockdown procedures with our students during a community circle on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.


Thanks for talking with your children at home about safety and not to be alarmed as it is necessary to practice for situations that may occur at school. Please note, that if any parent volunteer is in the building during our Lockdown Drill, you will need to go immediately to the nearest lockable room or hallway until the drill is over.

Fall Illness Reminders!

We would like to remind all parents of the importance of keeping sick children home. When a student comes to school ill, he/she can spread illness by coughing, touching his/her nose/mouth and then touching objects that other students come in contact with. Remember that fever is not the only sign of true illness and that fever is usually a late sign of an illness, or an illness that is progressing. If your child is out sick don’t forget to always send in a note from the medical provider or a parent note. MISD Health policies are in place to help ensure a healthy school where students can learn and grow.
