How can I monitor my student's grades and attendance?
Parents and guardians are encouraged to keep up with their student's grades by utilizing the Home Access Center (HAC). The username and password can be provided by the administrative assistant in your student's House office. The HAC can be accessed here.
How long are grading periods?
McKinney North High School has 9 week grading periods (Quarters). Within the 9 weeks students and parents will be provided with progress reports at the 3 week and 6 week marks. While the progress reports are important, we strongly encourage parents and students to regularly check the Home Access Center to stay informed about grades. Semesters are two quarters in length and we have a fall and spring semester.
Where can I locate schedules for athletics/fine arts events?
The calendar located within this website keeps a current calendar for McKinney North High School's athletics and fine arts events. Additionally, it is recommended that parents and students make use of the MISDGo App for smartphones. This app maintained by the district also has scheduling information for athletics and fine arts events.
Where can parents drop off their students in the morning?
Parents can drop off and pick up their student's on the north side of the building. The south side of the building is reserved for staff parking and bus traffic only.
Can a student's class schedule be changed?
The master schedule of classes at MNHS is based on specific course requests by students and parents made during the spring semester. It is important that students discuss course choices with their parents, teachers, and counselor because teachers are hired and assigned so that students have the opportunity to take the courses they request. Every attempt will be made to schedule students into the courses they choose. † Once the school year begins, schedule changes will not be made unless an error was made in the selection of courses that will affect the student's graduation plan.
The following criteria will result in schedule changes:
- The student is a senior and is not scheduled in a course required for graduation
- The student is misplaced in a course (no prerequisites, previously earned credit, etc.)
- Student schedules may need to be changed in order to balance class sizes or to accommodate teacher workloads
