Please drop your children off at Main Event Plano (3941 Central Expressway, Plano, 75023) at 6:30 p.m. They will need to check in with Mr. Sloan, Mrs. Gearhart, Ms. Coad, or Mrs. Winkler at the entrance upon arrival to receive their $10 Fun Pass, wrist band, and food ticket.

Please pick your child up at the front entrance (inside) of Main Event at 8:30 p.m. Parents are required to sign out their students with Mr. Sloan, Mrs. Gearhart, Ms. Coad, Mrs. Winkler or one of our parent chaperones before they leave, so that we know everyone has a ride safely.

When students check in, they will receive tickets to get their food items. Main Event is not able to accommodate special dietary needs; the dinner served is pizza and soft drinks.
