During bad weather, we make every attempt to assess the road conditions and notify staff and students as early as possible. Every effort is made to assess the road conditions and make a final decision by 5:30 a.m. Although, there have been cases where the weather worsened during the morning hours and a decision was made slightly later than the 5:30 goal.
The district will use several communication avenues to notify parents, students, and staff. The ParentLink automated phone calling system will be utilized in the event of a delay or school closure. If you recently changed phone numbers and have not notified the district, please make certain your information is accurate by contacting the registrar at your child's campus. In addition, we will post the information on MISD's Facebook page, MISD's Twitter page and on McKinney ISD's website homepage (www.mckinneyisd.net). We will also send out an Email Extra notification, and notify all local television and radio outlets.
Please do not rely solely on the phone call from the district. The district's Facebook and Twitter accounts are the first places information is updated. The MISD website homepage, ParentLink and MISD Email Extra are generally the second wave of communication received and television network updates are typically last (because there is often a lag time between when we send the information to them and when it is posted).
