McKinney ISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel provides an update on the plans for graduation as MISD considers the possibility of a more traditional ceremony.

Dear McKinney ISD Parents,

In light of the recent announcement from Governor Abbott relaxing certain restrictions in the coming weeks, McKinney ISD is considering the possibility of a more traditional graduation for our 2020 graduates.

Currently, the district has a plan in place for a drive-through graduation, but we are also developing a plan for a more traditional graduation ceremony. We are still awaiting information from state and local agencies to determine what will be permitted, and we will provide additional information as soon as it becomes available.

We know that you have many questions at this time, and we are asking for your patience as we receive feedback from these agencies and determine next steps. As always, the safety of our students and guests remains our first priority. Any change from our current plan will be determined if/when large gatherings, such as a graduation, are allowed. In the meantime, we have an excellent plan in place utilizing the drive-through ceremony. We will communicate potential changes in the ceremony as information becomes available in the coming weeks.

With high regards,

Dr. Rick McDaniel
McKinney ISD Superintendent

Una actualización sobre la graduación de la escuela preparatoria

Estimados padres de McKinney ISD:

A la luz del reciente anuncio del Gobernador Abbott relajando ciertas restricciones en las próximas semanas, McKinney ISD está considerando la posibilidad de una graduación más tradicional para nuestros graduados de 2020.

Actualmente, el distrito tiene un plan para una graduación por automóvil (drive-through), pero también estamos desarrollando un plan para una ceremonia de graduación más tradicional. Todavía estamos esperando información de las agencias estatales y locales para determinar qué se permitirá, y proporcionaremos información adicional tan pronto como esté disponible.

Sabemos que tiene muchas preguntas en este momento, y le pedimos su paciencia mientras recibimos sugerencias de estas agencias y determinamos los próximos pasos. Como siempre, la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes e invitados sigue siendo nuestra primera prioridad. Cualquier cambio a nuestro plan actual se determinará si/cuando se permitan grandes reuniones, como una graduación. Mientras tanto, tenemos un excelente plan implementado utilizando la ceremonia por automóvil. Comunicaremos posibles cambios de la ceremonia a medida que la información esté disponible en las próximas semanas.

Con gran aprecio,

Dr. Rick McDaniel
Superintendente de McKinney ISD
