Good evening Blackcats,
This announcement is to inform you that MISD will be conducting practice campus evacuation drills tomorrow and Thursday. There has not been an event that has caused us to practice these drills, we are just being proactive in the event something does happen in the future. Our top priority is the safety of our students and staff and these drills are being conducted in the event we ever need to evacuate our campuses for purposes like a weather event (tornado) or some other type of emergency. These practice drills are being conducted in accordance to recommendations from the Texas State School Safety Center.
Students will be 100% in the care of their teachers as well as campus and district administrators at all times. For practice purposes students will be transported from their campus on buses to an alternate location such as the football stadium. Students will then immediately be returned to campus so please make sure they wear their coats over the next couple of days as they will be outdoors for a few minutes during these practice drills.
Also, you may notice some extra police & fire department vehicles around our campuses. There is no need to be alarmed as they will be assisting us and participating in these practice drills. We are appreciative of their partnership with Mexia ISD.
We would like to invite all Veterans and their families to a Veteran's Day Breakfast and Program at the Mexia High School Library on November 11 at 8:30 am.
Please RSVP for the Veterans Day Breakfast by calling 254-562-4010 to reserve your spot.
