Dear McDade Parents and Staff, Due to attendance issues because of the flu and flu-like viruses, I have decided to close school for this Thursday, January 24, and Friday, January 25. Today we had only 67% of our PK students in attendance, 68% of our kinder, and 78% of our first graders. This gave us 83% for the elementary school and 86.5% district-wide. We have enough minutes built into the calendar that students will NOT have to make-up the missed time. All custodial and maintenance staff will report to work as usual to sanitize all buildings and buses. We take the health and safety of our students and staff very seriously and we hope that this 4 day weekend will help to give everyone time to rest and get well. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks, Barbara Marchbanks Superintendent McDade ISD Dream Big...The path to the future begins here!
