McKinney ISD announced plans for making up the four days of classes it lost to an early February statewide ice storm.

All schools in the district will use both of its bad-weather makeup days April 10 and April 24 to make up for lost time, according to a Feb. 9 district news alert.

Like other school districts in North Texas, MISD schools and offices were closed from Jan. 29 through Feb. 3.

“Safety is our top priority, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation throughout this challenging week,” district staff said in a Feb. 2 Facebook post.

MISD officials are also looking to get a waiver from the Texas Education Agency to cover the other two missed days, according to the news alert. If approved, the district will not need to schedule additional makeup days.

“A waiver is simply a formal process for requesting that the additional days missed will not have to be made up and also that the district would continue to receive [Average Daily Attendance] funding for the missed days,” MISD Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham said.

Requesting a TEA waiver is common when districts have multiple bad-weather days in a row, Cunningham said.

The rest of the district’s schedule, including the upcoming school holidays in late February, will stay the same, according to the news alert.

“Parents and students should note that Feb. 17 will remain a school holiday on the district calendar, and Feb. 20 will still be a student holiday/staff development day,” MISD staff said in the news alert.
