Second Semester Open House Information

Jasper parents, please be aware that due to an inadvertent scheduling conflict, we are moving the date of Journey to Jag Country to Thursday, January 7. Times will remain the same. Thank you for your understanding and more details about the night can be found below.

Attention all 9th and 10th grade students and parents, we hope that on Thursday, January 7 from 6:00 to 6:30, you will be able to come to campus and visit with your current teachers for spring open house. All teachers will be in designated areas. Freshman parents and students, from 6:30 to 7:00 you are invited to explore classes you might be interested in taking your sophomore year. Maps will be provided to help you find the where each department is located.

Plano ISD Facilities and Technology Study Task Force Seeks Parent and Community Feedback

Dear Parents,

The Facilities and Technology Study Task Force, assembled by the Plano ISD Board of Trustees in August, is hosting a public hearing to gather community input as they evaluate district needs with regard to a possible bond initiative. I encourage our parent community to attend this public forum, as this will be your opportunity to provide feedback or ask questions related to the committee’s work of reviewing enrollment trends and projections, as well as establishing construction, renovation and technology needs. The hearing will be hosted as follows:

Facilities and Technology Study Task Force Public Hearing
Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:00 p.m.
Plano Senior High School Doyle Dean Performing Arts Center
2200 Independence Pkwy, Plano, TX 75075

Speaker cards will be required from all who wish to speak at the hearing and will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m. through the end of the meeting.

Additional opportunities for input are available at the regular school board meetings scheduled for January 12 and February 2, 2016, and via district e-mail at askpisd@pisd.edu. For more information on the work of the Facilities and Technology Study Task Force, please visit the Plano ISD website at: http://www.pisd.edu/news/2016bond/index.shtml.

End of the semester textbook check

Teachers will complete a textbook check prior to exams. Students will adhere to teacher requirements concerning turning in books or simply showing proof of having the book in order to take exams. Any textbook fines must be paid prior to taking your exam. Any student that does not show proof of the text book by the time of the exam will be sent to the office to make arrangements with parents and administrator to verify the student still has the book. After verification, the student will be able to take the semester exam.

Absences during semester exams

For students who know they will be out during exam week, obtain an Absences Request form and Exam Make-up Form from Ms. Brown. Turn in both by December 4th. Any student who is absent unexpectedly will receive a zero for their exam and be allowed to make it up depending on the reason for the absence.

VOE over the winter break

Any student that will be needing a VOE for over the winter break will need to pick one up in the student center before school is out December 18th. Jasper will be closed from December 19th to January 3rd. Students will not be able to pick up a VOE during this time. The first time a VOE will be able to be picked up would be January 4th on the teacher work day. Please plan accordingly.
