Happy February, McCabe Families! 

We’re over half-way through the school year, which means . . . it’s time to update your ParentVUE information!  If you’ve changed your cell phone information or your child has new health concerns, please log into to your ParentVUE account and make the necessary changes.

Below are a few activities coming up over the next few weeks:

MODIFIED LOCKDOWN DRILL with REUNIFICATION:  Both campuses will hold a Modified Lockdown Drill with Reunification on Friday, February 15th.  Once the lockdown portion of the drill is complete, students and staff will be directed to gather by grade in specific locations (MMPR, CMPR, Gym) to take attendance.  In the event of an emergency, parents would be directed to their child’s location to sign them out.  Students will return to their regular schedule after the drill.
