First Day of School
PISD first day of school is August 9th. Plano East begins school at 9 am unless you have a zero hour which starts at 8 am. Our full bell schedule can be found here.
Students should bring their schedule either on their phone or paper. If a student needs assistance with getting their schedule, they should report to the library which is located in the upstairs B2 above the cafeteria.
For the first three days of school, East will be on an alternative schedule to allow all staff and students to complete the necessary first day attendance, safety and security drills, and share pertinent information with our students they will need to be successful at East.
This schedule can be found here.
For Immunization records, go to www.pisd.edu, then click on the For Parents tab. Log on to Parent Portal. (You may be familiar with Parent Portal for checking your student’s grades.) An additional box has been added that allows you to print out your student’s immunization record.
Students in the IB program can request lockers through the Delta office. Otherwise, no lockers are assigned at Plano East. This can be done during Expedition East and once school has gotten started.
Lunch InformationStudents returning to Plano East next year will maintain the same lunch keypad ID number, which is their student ID number. Keypad lunch numbers are confidential. Do not give or share your number with others. Money deposited in a students’ account may be used for anything we sell in the cafeteria. Please sign up for PayPAMS, the online PAYPAMS payment system that allows parents to make credit card payments to their student’s lunch account via the Internet. Any money left from last school year will be in your account when you return as well as any debt. Students will not be allowed to purchase a meal on credit. In the event that any student has a negative balance, a modified meal at a reduced price will be provided.
Families who may qualify should complete a federal meal application for free or reduced-price meals, available through Parent Portal or via the website at www.pisd.edu/mealprogram. Click the green SchoolCafé button to begin.
Families who already have a SchoolCafé account can log in to complete the meal application. Families who do not have an account can create one by selecting that option on the main SchoolCafé page. View this SchoolCafe information video for instruction on how to complete the application.
