************************** ADMINISTRATIVE UPDATES ******************

Campus Security

Random Metal Detector Searches at Secondary Campuses:



The Plano Independent School District (PISD) is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment so that education remains the primary focus for students and staff.


As the district continues to evaluate and enhance school safety features districtwide, the Plano ISD Board of Trustees recently approved policy revisions permitting random, suspicion-less metal detector searches at secondary campuses. Implementation of this policy will begin on secondary campuses soon. The purpose of this policy is to prevent and deter students from bringing weapons to school. School officials are authorized to conduct metal detector screenings of students and searches of their personal effects.


Random metal detector searches may occur at any time and students must comply with instructions and directives from school officials during this process. A student who refuses to comply with the search process will be removed from campus and subject to disciplinary consequences pursuant to the Student Code of Conduct. The district will use both walk-through and hand-held metal detectors (wands).

Plano ISD to Begin Collections for Unpaid Meal Charges


April 2019

This month, families with unpaid meal charges will begin receiving notifications from Plano ISD regarding the amount owed and how to pay their balances. We want you to be aware of this impending communication and the related guidelines and payment options.

The goal of Plano ISD’s school breakfast and lunch program is to provide healthy meals to children during the school day. In order to serve healthy, high-quality meals to all children, we must make sure we are financially secure, and parents play a key role in this effort.

Procedures for Students with Unpaid Meal Charges:
If you are unsure if your family has a meal account balance, you can view your balance via the Plano ISD Mobile App (downloadable at www.pisd.edu/mobileapp), or you can access and pay the balance online using Paypams, https://paypams.com.

A student is allowed up to two reimbursable breakfast meal charges (where served) and two reimbursable lunch meal charges. Once a student incurs these charges, communication to the parents/guardian is initiated. This month’s direct notification will include comprehensive guidelines and instructions, and will be sent in addition to the regularly scheduled notifications.

· Parents/guardians may make payments in students’ accounts through the online payment system or in person at the campus site.

· For online payments, visit https://paypams.com. You will need to know your login information.

· To access the Free and Reduced Price Meal Application visit https://fans.pisd.edu/fma. Qualifying for the Free and Reduced Meal Program will apply only to charges incurred after successful enrollment, and cannot be applied retroactively to existing balances.

For questions or inquiries about payment plans, contact the food and nutritional services manager at your child’s school. You may access those phone numbers as follows:

· Elementary Schools: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4521

· Middle Schools: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4548

· High Schools/Senior High Schools: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4549

El ISD de Plano iniciará la cobranza de cargos de comida no pagados


Abril de 2019

Este mes, las familias que tienen cargos de comida no pagados empezarán a recibir avisos del ISD de Plano sobre el monto debido y cómo pagar sus saldos pendientes. Queremos que estén enterados de esta comunicación inminente y las directrices y opciones de pago relacionadas.

La meta del programa de desayunos y almuerzos escolares del ISD de Plano es de proveer comidas saludables a los alumnos durante el día escolar. Para poder servir a todos los alumnos comidas saludables y de alta calidad debemos asegurarnos de estar económicamente estables, y los padres juegan un papel esencial en este esfuerzo.

Procedimientos para alumnos con cargos a la cuenta de comidas no pagados:
Si no está seguro si su familia tiene un saldo pendiente de pagar por comidas, puede ver su saldo en la App Móvil del ISD de Plano (descargable en www.pisd.edu/mobileapp), o puede ver y pagar el saldo en línea a través de Paypams, https://paypams.com.

A un alumno se le permite hasta dos desayunos reembolsables (donde sirvan) y dos almuerzos reembolsables, por cobrar. Una vez que el alumno incurre estos cargos, empezará la comunicación con el padre/tutor. La notificación directa de este mes incluirá directrices e instrucciones exhaustivas, y se enviará además de las notificaciones regularmente programadas.

· Los padres/tutores pueden hacer pagos a las cuentas estudiantiles a través del sistema de pagos en línea, o en persona en el campus.

· Para hacer pagos en línea visite https://paypams.com. Será necesario saber sus datos de inicio de sesión.

· Para acceso a la Solicitud de Comidas Gratis o a Precio Reducido, visite https://fans.pisd.edu/fma. El derecho al Programa de Comidas Gratis y a Precio Reducido solamente se aplicará a los cargos incurridos después de una matrícula válida y no puede ser aplicado de forma retroactiva a ningún saldo pendiente.

Para dudas o preguntas sobre planes de pago, comuníquese con el gerente de servicios de alimento y nutrición del campus. Puede comunicarse con esos teléfonos como sigue:

· Escuelas Primarias: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4521

· Escuelas Medias: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4548

· Escuelas Secundarias/Preparatorias: https://www.pisd.edu/Page/4549
