2020-2021 Murphy Middle School Supply List


Please remember that Bulk Supplies are not optional. Bulk Supplies are just as required as General Supplies. The only difference is Bulk Supplies will be turned into the teachers at the beginning of the year and General Supplies are the students responsibility to bring to class when needed.

Summer Learning Resources for Middle School Students

We are pleased to announce that Plano ISD middle school students will have access to an additional digital resource over the summer. MyON is a literacy platform that includes thousands of enhanced digital books with optional reading supports. Students will find the new MyON tile in Webdesk. In addition to digital books, MyON also provides daily news articles with multi-media resources, written just for students and reviewed by a child psychologist for age-appropriate content.

Student Immunizations

Thank you to those 6th grade parents that have submitted their student’s immunization information for 7th grade. This will enable you to print your student’s schedule at registration time.


An immunization letter as well as a copy of each student’s immunization record will be sent home with your student next week if your student needs immunizations prior to 7th grade.


Please submit the paperwork to the nurse as soon as possible so that the school record may be updated.

2020-2021 PISD Calendar

Many factors were considered during the calendar development period, which began with a community survey in September. Considerations included: balancing grading periods and semesters; length of school day/instructional minutes; extended planning/professional learning time; exam and testing calendars; survey and stakeholder input; alignment with dual credit/Collin College; and ending the school year before Memorial Day. The 2020-21 calendar features a Wednesday, August 12, 2020 start date and a Thursday, May 27, 2021 end date. Other features include a full week break at Thanksgiving and spring break on March 8-12, 2021.
