WANT TO SUBSTITUTE TEACH?
McKinney ISD substitute teachers serve an essential role in our classrooms. They keep the learning moving forward when a teacher can not be in the classroom. At McClure, we are thankful for all of the substitutes that serve our Marshals.
If you have ever considered serving as a substitute, now is a great time to apply! We are looking for people who are committed to the students and families in our district. Substitutes in MISD can choose if they would like to work at only one level campus (elementary, middle, or high) or they can work at campuses across all levels.
Applications are processed on a continuing basis through the fall semester.
For details on the application process and to get started, please visit:
Substitute Opportunities. Substitutes are an important part of the daily operations of the school day.
We truly appreciate our substitutes and are grateful for your contribution to our students and teachers.

1st & 2nd Grade GT Referrals Open for Nominations - Due by Thursday, September 30th
The McKinney ISD GT Department is currently accepting referrals for Gifted and Talented services. We are looking for students who are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, and environment. The deadline for 1st and 2nd grade referrals is September 30, 2021. The referral can be accessed via the links below. You are welcome to complete the online referral or a paper based referral.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit
The Emergency Broadband Benefit will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.
McKinney ISD Menu Change
Due to manufacturer shortages and other instabilities in the supply chain, as well as a large increase in meal participation across the board at all schools, we’ve needed to alter the elementary menus to ensure we meet the demand of so many students. The most up-to-date menu information will always be available on our menu website at mckinney.schooldish.com, which updates hourly based on changes we are making continually as needs demand. Because we know many people would still like a paper copy, we are presently working on getting a downloadable printable paper menu posted on the same webpage.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PARENT INFORMATION
Due to a vaccine not available for younger students McKinney ISD will notify classes in elementary schools of confirmed positive cases until this age group has a vaccination available to them.
McClure Lunch/Recess Schedule 21-22
If you would like to volunteer at McClure or attend field trips, please complete the volunteer background check. If you have been approved in the past, you have until September to update your application for the new school year. You must complete a new form each year. Please note that if you do not complete the proper paperwork, you cannot help chaperone field trips or help in the school in any way. We need and want your help, so please fill out the forms now.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. McKinney will be participating in the USDA waivers for free meals once again this school year. Healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost.
Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year. As such, McKinney ISD will process household applications during School Year 2021-2022 to ensure student eligibility for free or reduced-price meals during the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year
Starting on August 3rd, MISD will begin processing online applications, as well as accepting written applications. Food Service strongly encourages families to apply online this year, however, we will provide schools with paper applications. Every school will be distributed a minimal amount of paper applications for parents to pick up if requested. We are asking each school to communicate or post the following link in newsletters, social media, or other forms of communication http://www.mckinneyisd.schoollunchapp.com/
