• Salute to Service

  • The Salute to Service Employee Banquet has been a long-standing, treasured tradition in Plano ISD because it honors the dedicated, heartfelt work of employees. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Plano ISD is developing creative alternatives to in-person celebrations—because not celebrating our employees’ hard work is not an option.

    2021 Virtual Salute to Service Celebration: Week of April 5

    April 5 - 8, the district is excited to celebrate our 2021 Salute to Service honorees, which includes service pin recipients, retirees and Superintendent Service Award nominees. As a part of this celebration, honorees will receive a celebration box containing recognition items as a thank you for their dedicated service to the district in addition to their pins, plaques and/or certificates. All of these items will be delivered to campuses/departments between April 5-7 and will be distributed to honorees by principals and department leadership. 

    In addition to these recognition items, the district will also celebrate this year’s honorees with special videos. The schedule for the release of these videos is a follows:

    • Monday, April 5 at 9 a.m. –  Salute to the Service of All 2021 Honorees
    • Tuesday, April 6 at 9 a.m. – Service Pin Recipients
    • Wednesday, April 7 at 9 a.m. – Retirees
    • Thursday, April 8 at 9 a.m. – Superintendent Service Award Nominees
    • Thursday, April 8 at 3 p.m. – Superintendent Service Award Winners Announced  

    Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees, and thank you for your commitment to the students, families and staff of Plano ISD. If you have any questions, please contact Brittnea Ussery.
