Message from Principal Jackson
Dear Panther Parents,
Last weekend’s football games reminded me of why that is one of my favorite pastimes! (Gig ‘em Aggies!!)
Tuesday is our first pep rally of the year. We are trying something new this year by having it outside on our football field. Students will be sitting on the track (every other lane for spacial reasons) and the participants will be on the field. We feel this is a safe way to celebrate our students!! Parents are welcome. There will be a check-in table as you enter the field. I recommend getting there around 2:00 for a good seat and as adults, you are welcome to bring lawn chairs to set on the track. Please know that students will not be checked out at the football field. If you want to check your child out early, please go to the front office at the conclusion of the pep rally.
Grades for quarter 1 will be viewable in HAC in October 22nd.
Fall Picture retakes will be next Friday, October 22nd. If your student was absent on picture day, enrolled after September 16th, or you were not happy with the photo that was taken, this will be the opportunity to have another photo taken.
October 25th is a student holiday/teacher professional development day. If you want to have a parent/teacher conference, this would be a great day to set this up with your child’s teacher.
Have a wonderful weekend,

2021-22 Free Lunches and Application Process
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 we 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/
