General Annoucements

Picture retakes have been moved up. We will now have our retakes for seniors, juniors through freshman, and staff on Monday, September 17th. Students will be sent down during their history classes if they need to have a picture taken. Pictures will be taken in the gym. Any student that does not have a history class will need to go before school or during lunch to have their picture taken. If you have any questions please see your sub school.

Student Expectations at Extracurricular Events- Students this is a reminder as you start to attend extracurricular events that the student code of conduct still applies when attending events after hours and at other PISD sites. Any violation of the student code of conduct will be handled just as if it were a regular school day. This includes events at other schools or district sites as well. Some violations could jeopardize your status as a student here at Plano East. Please also remember that we expect everyone to have a good time at these events; however, we are going to cheer for our team and not heckle the other team or referees. We need to lead by example and win with class! If you have any questions, please see an administrator.
