Monday, Feb. 1—MISD Asynchronous (At-Home) Learning Day
Dear McKinney ISD Parents,
We want to remind you that Monday, February 1, has been designated as an asynchronous (at-home) learning day on the MISD academic calendar. There will be no on-campus instruction on Monday. Rather all MISD students will complete assignments at home.
In December, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced a new waiver option for school districts that allows for the scheduling of periodic asynchronous (at-home) instructional days during the spring of 2021.
Asynchronous learning is a general term used to describe education or lessons that do not occur in the same place or at the same time. For example, students would learn from home and receive classroom assignments from learning platforms such as SeeSaw and Canvas and complete the assignment independently.
Under this new option, districts are provided with an opportunity to change a regular school day to be asynchronous instruction (students learn remotely and independently) in order to provide additional planned professional development, teacher preparation days and to focus on teacher planning and student engagement.
The waiver option comes at a critical time during the COVID-19 pandemic when most school districts and teachers can benefit significantly from additional planning and collaboration due to the demands of teaching in-person and virtual students simultaneously.
The following dates have been designated as asynchronous instruction days in McKinney ISD, and all students will learn remotely and independently on these days. Assignments will be posted on SeeSaw and Canvas.

Important Reminders From Our Nurse
As we continue our school year in 2021 please keep in mind our COVID-19 guidelines. I appreciate everything you do to keep our students healthy!
Please screen your student daily, prior to arriving on campus, for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 including:
Feeling Feverish or Fever (100.0 or greater)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue (Excessively tired)
Significant muscle or body aches
Loss of taste or smell
If your student has a COVID-19 test or has symptoms of COVID or has contact with someone who has tested positive please keep them at home and contact Nurse Megan.
Just a reminder that responses to emails send after school hours may not be returned until the next school day. The process to switch a student into virtual learning for an extended absence is a process that may take up to a day to complete.
Please report your student’s absence to Nurse Megan at 469-302-9445 or email@example.com
