Plano ISD updates COVID-19 protocols

by | Jan 10, 2022 | Latest

Because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases, Plano ISD has updated the guidelines for schoolwide events and activities to protect the health and well-being of students and staff.

The revised guidelines, which will be in effect through Feb. 4, include prohibiting campuses from planning large attendance indoor events such as school assemblies, parties, socials and pep rallies. Campuses are encouraged to explore other options such as small gatherings, grade level cohort groups or virtual settings.

All parent meetings and conferences will be held virtually until Feb. 4, when the district will reevaluate the revised guidelines.

Campus visitors and volunteers will also be limited based on the current campus response level. Cafeteria visitors will not be allowed on campus as well.

Out-of-district field trips will be postponed and rescheduled. However, field trips for third-graders to the PISD Outdoor Learning Center will continue as planned. Parents can opt their children out of the trip.

Middle school visits for fifth-graders will be postponed and rescheduled if possible or held virtually.

Student travel out of the district related to an academic or athletic competition will follow Texas Education Agency and UIL guidance. Any student travel unrelated to competition will be postponed and rescheduled.
