Dear McKamy families,
I’d like to offer an early welcome to the 2017-2018 school year with some important dates for you to add to your calendar while you’re hopefully soaking up the last few weeks of summer.
2017-2018 Student Orientation is Thursday, August 17th:
At orientation there will be a short presentation of important information, students may collect their schedules, and students and parents may walk the building to become familiar with classroom locations.
This year 6th grade orientation will be more flexible and informal. Students will be able to walk the building with parents and/or peers following the presentation. Some McKamy students and faculty will be in the halls to assist you. Please note that teachers are not required to be on campus on this day, but they are looking forward to meeting parents at our Fall Open House on Tuesday, September 5th at 6pm.
On Wednesday, August 23rd at 6pm, we will host a reception for students and parents who are completely new to our community (not coming to McKamy from one of our LISD feeder elementary schools). We hope this reception gives you an opportunity for you to meet existing families in our community and make your transition smoother.
Beginning of the Year Forms will be available July 26th on Skyward Family Access (www.lisd.net). Be sure to complete these forms by Friday, September 1st, and feel free to stop by our office if you need assistance. Students who wish to participate in the 1:X program and have a district-owned iPad must pay an annual insurance fee of $40. Replacement and repair costs for damaged iPads are charged to the student’s Skyward account unless this fee is paid. Visit http://lisd.net, click on the Resources tab, and then “For Parents” for more information and the 1:X handbook. The iPad insurance renewal fee and the Acceptable User Policy (AUP) Form are required. Don't forget to choose to "submit" after completing your forms.
McKamy's website (http:/lisd.net/mckamy) has a wealth of information related to our school such as school supplies, PE/Athletic wear, new school hours, sports schedules, and other upcoming events.
Please "friend" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@mckamyms) so you can stay connected with us. You can also follow me @kellyknight5. You will receive periodic emails from us through Skyward Family Access to keep you abreast of things happening at our school. We're looking forward to a great school year!
