Emergency Guide for Parents and Visitors

The McKinney Independent School District is committed to providing a safe environment for student, staff, and visitors. We work closely with safety officials-police, fire, emergency medical services, and public health, in order to ensure our schools are well prepared for an emergency. We have developed a comprehensive plan that covers a wide variety of emergencies that serves as a guide to help staff and our public safety partners respond swiftly should a crisis occur in our schools.

Keyless Entry (Building Access)

All campuses have keyless entry systems designed to provide access only to authorized district personnel and other persons approved by the district. The keyless entry system provides a photographic identification badge for all staff.

Hall Pass System (Building Access)

All campuses utilize a Hall Pass System to protect the students of MISD by identifying and monitoring Registered Sex Offenders who try to gain access to campuses. The Hall Pass System consists of a national database used to identify registered sex offenders. Administrative personnel are notified via text message and email upon positive ID of a sex offender trying to enter a campus.

Fire Drills

Fire drills are mandated by state law. One fire drill must be held each month at every campus. Fire drills are recorded on a yearly state fire marshal report. These reports must be kept for three (3) years.

Tornado Drills

Tornado drills are reviewed with students and staff and are practiced each semester. Parents should note, that during a tornado watch, parents can enter the school and check their child out. Once the status is moved to a tornado warning all staff and students are moved to a safe area and parents will not be able to enter the school until the National Weather Service changes the threat level for the McKinney area. MISD monitors weather year-round and utilizes emergency radios that are tied to the police towers to ensure communication when cell service is not available.


Lockdown information is reviewed each year with students and staff at each campus. An announced lockdown drill is held during the fall semester and an unannounced lockdown drill is held in the spring semester at each campus. The campus is evaluated during these lockdown drills.

Safety Audits

Safety Audits are completed at MISD sites on a 3 year rotation basis. The state mandated audits reinforce the strengths and remove concerns at campuses. Safety Audits are truly an improvement tool for campuses.
