Welcome to McNair Elementary

McNair Elementary has been providing a quality educational experience to families in southern Denton for more than 25 years. The school takes pride in working with all students - even serving as the home to hearing impaired students for Denton County and part of the North Texas region - and meeting their academic needs through a variety of programs and initiatives.

Students at McNair are taught the value of community service and teamwork through numerous activities and events, while families are encouraged to volunteer on campus throughout the school year and keep connected with the school and each other through personal interaction and social media. The school motto is to "Believe and Achieve" and McNair students and staff work toward that goal together every day.

  • Parents Can Now Email Absent Notes

    Denton ISD policy states that a note must be sent within 72 hours of the child returning to school in order to excuse an absence as long as it meets the excused criteria, even if you called the attendance line. Parents can now email absence notes to mcnairnotes@dentonisd.org in place of a hand-written note. Just like written notes, the emails cannot go to the classroom teacher. They need to go directly to the office using the above email address. Please see the student code of conduct for complete details. Make sure the note has your child's full name, dates of the absences, reason for the absence, and your signature and date. If a note is turned in after 72 hours the absence will be considered un­excused. If you have any other questions, please call our office at 940-369-3600 for clarification.
