Dear Fifth Grade Parents/Guardians:
As a fifth-grade student in Plano ISD, your child would typically have the opportunity to attend an outdoor school experience at Collin County Adventure Camp this fall. This partnership program with the YMCA provides an extension of the district’s fifth-grade science curriculum.
It is with a heavy heart that we are informing you we have suspended this year’s in-person camp experience. There were multiple factors to consider in this decision, such as, the rising number of COVID cases and the continued repairs at the camp facilities due to the February winter storm.
While we are sad that we will not be learning and exploring in the outdoors this fall, we will again provide a science experience for our fifth-graders this spring called #CampOnCampus. More information will be provided to you at a later date from your student’s fifth-grade teachers regarding this learning experience.
If you have already paid for camp, our district finance team is working to refund your payment. Please allow four to six weeks as the team is working to process these refunds.
Please know that your child’s safety and well-being are our top priority.
Outdoor Education Coordinator
