Plano ISD MLK Celebration To Be Hosted Virtually
January 18, 2022
With the theme “Together We Honor the Past, Inspire the Present and Change the Future,” this year marks the 35th year for Plano ISD’s annual tribute event celebrating the vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the diverse Plano ISD community. The 2022 event will be held as a virtual celebration that will include engaging content that highlights the winners of the student writing contest, the Diversity Leadership Award nominees and winners, top artwork selected from the student art contest and more.
We will share more details as we finalize planning to revise our live event to a virtual format. This will include a new date, time and platform for hosting the event. We look forward to celebrating together, even if we are not celebrating in person.
Due to rising COVID related case numbers in our community, the district has updated the guidelines for schoolwide events and activities to protect the health and wellbeing of Plano ISD students and staff. These revised guidelines will be in place through February 4, 2022, and will be reevaluated at that time. Revised sections are noted in the Return to School Plan with an updated date. Read more.
