Dear McKamy Families,

 Welcome back, McKamy Knights! It’s been a short summer, but we are excited to kick off a super new school year. Our theme this year is, “What’s your SuperPower?

 McKamy’s 2018-2019 Student Orientation (Squire Camp!) is Thursday, August 2nd:

  • 8th grade at 8:30 am
  • 7th grade at 10:30 am
  • 6th grade at 1:30 pm

 At Orientation there will be a short presentation of important information, schedules will be available for students to collect, and students and parents may walk the building to become familiar with classroom locations. Wrap packs of school supplies will be available for pick up in the gym and spirit wear will be available for purchase.

 Please note that teachers are not required to be on campus at orientation, but they are looking forward to meeting parents at Fall Open House on Tuesday, August 21st, 6:30 - 8:00pm. Our first McKamy PTA meeting will also be August 21st at 6:00pm in the cafeteria.

 On Wednesday, August 8th at 6pm in the McKamy library, we will host a welcome reception for students and parents who are completelynew to our community (not coming to McKamy from one of our LISD feeder elementary schools). We hope this reception gives you an opportunity to connect with families in our community and make your transition to Flower Mound a smooth one.

 Beginning of the Year Forms will soon be available on Skyward Family Access (www.lisd.net). Be sure to complete these forms by Friday, August 31st, 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. In November, all McKamy students will receive brand new iPads and keyboards from the district. We will have more details about this in the fall.

 Updated immunizations are required by the State of Texas for all 7th Graders. Please see this important information from Nurse Holly. You will not receive a schedule at orientation without these, and will not be able to start school if these have not been updated: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18Xjyk7Pppa6OAUTgO1vBkxQ7tRVu1Omb/view?usp=sharing
