Crosswalk Near PSA

The Plano School Crossing Guard Services has informed us that after evaluating Robinson Middle School, the guarded crosswalk near PSA has been closed. This guarded crosswalk was added during the long period of construction during Robinson's renovation. Now that the project is complete, the crossing guard has been reassigned to another location. The Preston Meadow @ Denham Way location will remain staffed for as long as there is a reasonable number of pedestrian students.


Because we want students to remain safe while walking home, we encourage you to communicate this change with your children and remind them to use caution when crossing the street especially when a crossing guard is not present. Please contact Michelle Roberts, Crossing Guard Services Manager, with questions.

Message from Nurse Haley

The holiday breaks are coming, and we may see some spikes in new Covid cases as people get together to celebrate. Please keep this in mind, and if your student starts showing any Covid-like symptoms such as coughing, fever, congestion, a headache that lasts a few days, body aches or stomach aches, please let me know and have them see by their doctor to rule out Covid. I can also help you find a clinic that provides testing or help you make an appointment for your child to be tested by the school district. If your student tests positive for Covid, please let me know right away so I can speak with you about school district requirements regarding quarantining and making a plan for their school work. All positive results need to be sent to me to be documented. If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please fill out this form. My office number is 469-752-6209 and my email is Haley.Burr@pisd.edu. Please let me know if you have any questions!


Thank you,


Nurse Haley
