High School/Senior High School Hybrid Cohort Calendar Adjustment
Monday, Oct. 5, is designated as a day for cohort A students (last names beginning with A-L) to attend school (for face-to-face) or participate in synchronous learning (for School@Home). This day has been added for cohort A in order to ensure both cohorts participate in synchronous instruction the same number of days during the grading period. Cohort B students will participate in asynchronous activities on Oct. 5.
Due to a wavier from the USDA, all Plano students will receive free breakfast and lunch until Dec. 31 or as long as funds are available. Effective, Sept. 15, free weekly meal bundles are available for curbside pickup for School@Home learners at Clark HS, Shepton HS and Williams HS on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Documentation required if child not present. Hybrid learners can pick up free meal bundles in the school cafeteria on Tues. (cohort A) or Wed. (cohort B) from 4:15 to 4:30 p.m. for off-campus consumption on asynchronous learning days.

Name TagsFor safety reasons, each student must wear his/her nametag every day.
Your child will not be allowed to ride the bus without a nametag.
If you child arrives at carpool drop off without a nametag, they will be given a temporary tag for that day only. Lost nametags will be replaced at a cost of $3.00.
Student iPadsFor those students will begin face-to-face instruction onsite at Beaty, please remember to send your child's iPad in their backpack every day. The iPad will travel to and from school daily with our students to facilitate any technology-based learning both in the classroom and at home.
Since each student has a device assigned to them, this will ensure that they will be able to use their own device during the school day without sharing.
All students must wear a mask during arrival and dismissal and while in the hallways. Students will wear a District provided face shield while they are in the classroom. Teachers will be practicing and modeling this to help support students with this expectation.
