    April 1, 2021

    Dear Students and Parents of Graduating Seniors,

    We are happy to inform you that all three senior high schools will have a senior prom for the Class of 2021. Each school is working with its students to finalize themes and aspects of the decor. Here is some general information we would like to share with you: 

    Location:

    Tom Kimbrough Stadium

    Prom Dates & Times:

    Based on parent input that earlier prom dates might create a COVID-risk for graduation, prom is scheduled just prior to planned graduation ceremonies. 

    • Plano West Senior High Prom

    Thursday, June 3 from 8-11 p.m.

    Tickets and Price:

    • TBD - More information will be provided as soon as final decisions are made.
    • Tickets will be available electronically. Information will be provided by each campus.

    Dress Code:

    • Same as any typical prom

    Health and safety protocols:

    • All students self-screen upon entry.
    • Students will wear masks at all times.
    • Students will be provided with water stations.
    • Three feet spacing will be encouraged throughout the entire dance.
    • Students will sign an acknowledgment form to purchase tickets stating they will follow these safety protocols.

    In the event of inclement weather:

    The dance will be moved to the indoor student activity building on the student’s campus. (All four doors will be kept open for ventilation purposes in the student activity building.)

    Each campus will be sharing more details about their prom, such as the specific theme and when tickets will be available for purchase.

    We look forward to providing an opportunity for our seniors to come together and celebrate their high school years before graduation.

    Sincerely,

    Janis Williams, Principal

  • Important Change to Plano West's 4th 9 weeks calendar

    Plano ISD will use Monday, April 26, as the designated inclement weather day for the weather-related closure on Thursday, February 11. Originally slated as a student holiday and staff development/workday, school will now be in session on April 26. TEA has approved waivers for the additional weather closures during Winter Storm Uri, so no additional make-up days are required. At Plano West, Monday, April 26th will now be an asynchronous instructional day for students. Assignments are to be completed asynchronously and attendance will be taken. 

    Here is an updated the 4th 9 weeks calendar that reflects this change.
