Happy New Year Mac Knights!

I hope you had a wonderful winter break.  We are ready to start this new year and new semester here at McCallum! I’m writing with a few updates so we can all start off strong.

With the start of the new year, you may find yourself in need of help.  We are opening up a Support Zoom Room for anyone who needs help getting to class or just simply needs a question answered.   There will be a counselor and/or an administrator present in the zoom room all day to answer your concerns.  Please stop by if you need help. Here’s the Zoom information for the Support Zoom Room:

Topic: Open ZOOM call – McCallum Support

Meeting ID: 951 8326 6654

Passcode sent by email.

Additionally, you may text Ms. Stone at 512-937-0886 if needed.  She will be monitoring her texts all day for people who need help.

I know many of you have been wondering about extracurricular activities here at McCallum.  We are following COVID guidance as directed from the district. Coaches and sponsors will communicate directly with their students and families about practices, rehearsals, games, productions, etc. As you have experienced all year, these decisions change rapidly according to what is happening in and around Austin and as guided from the district level.  Please know that you and your family may decide to opt in or out of participation without penalty.  All of our coaches and sponsors will adjust accordingly and provide material for the remote learner.

Happy 2021!

Thank you,

Nicole Griffith
