All students will receive a chromebook this year. Regardless if you are picking one up or will be keeping the chromebook that you checked out last school year, please fill out the Plano ISD technology release form that is included in this Release Form.
We realize that some families returning to Shepton for the 2020-2021 school year will need to keep their Chromebook from the spring. If your student will be holding onto the Chromebook that was checked out during the 2019-20 school year, please fill out the included form below to indicate you will not be returning the Chromebook to Shepton at this time. The only students that will be allowed to hold onto their Chromebooks will be students who were Shepton students in 2019-20 and will again be Shepton students in 2020-21. If you will not be returning for any reason, you will need to return your Chromebook to Shepton HS.
PARENTS & STUDENT EXPECTATIONS WHEN COMING TO SHEPTON
Please wear a face covering when picking up or returning student materials.
Follow COVID-19 preventative practices as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Please stay in your vehicle the entire time you are on campus, and follow the curbside process provided below.
Please do not come to the campus if you have been ill, if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or if you are currently under isolation/quarantine orders.
PROCESS FOR CHROMEBOOK / INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL DISTRIBUTION ON AUGUST 10TH AND AUGUST 11TH:
We ask that each vehicle have a sign with the Student Name and ID #. Please have this taped to the passenger side window and in a large, dark font to make it easy for staff to read from the curb as you pull up to the station. You may use this template if you wish.
This process will take place in multiple stations spread across the front of the school (please reference the picture below).
Please pull forward and allow spacing in between cars. After your collection is complete, please leave the campus. Please follow the direction of Shepton staff members while on campus to assist with the flow of traffic.
Removal of holds (textbooks, english novels, library books, chromebooks). If your student has a hold on their account for any reason, they will NOT be allowed to pick up a chromebook or any books during these pick up days. You can clear your hold at this station, or by contacting Athanasios Icossipentarhos (email@example.com) before the scheduled distribution days.
In an effort to make the process efficient for all, please make sure that any items you need to return to the campus are placed in the trunk or rear of your vehicle. Please prepare them as follows:
-Chromebooks: Wrap cord and place with Chromebook. Clearly label the Chromebook and cord with the Student Name and ID# on a piece of paper or sticky note.
-Textbooks, Library Books, and/or English Novels: Clearly label the books with the Student Name and ID# on a piece of paper or sticky note.

Chromebook Distribution Information
All students in grades K-12 will be expected to use a district issued Chromebook. This is required by the district as an essential resource in both face-to-face and School@Home environments for attendance, assignment submissions, synchronous participation and taking assessments. Students are responsible for the device issued to them. Replacement fees may be assessed for lost or broken devices and chargers. Due to the 1:1 nature of the district’s Chromebook program, whether students will be engaging in face-to-face learning or PISD School@Home, all students should pick up their assigned Chromebooks from their schools. Students enrolled in face-to-face learning will carry this device back and forth when learning commences on campuses September 9.
Plano ISD is excited to announce the implementation of a new volunteer management system for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, all 2019-2020 volunteer records will remain active until August 31, 2020, instead of being deactivated on June 30, per standard practice.
Volunteers will need to reapply in the new system prior to August 31 when their profile will be deactivated in the old system. The new system will be available for use in early August, and can be accessed at www.pisd.edu/volunteer. New volunteers wanting to apply will be able to do so at that time as well.
For technical assistance with your current volunteer account, including your username and/or password, please contact the Plano ISD Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (469) 752-8767.
Thank you for your patience as we transition to a new volunteer management system in order to improve the experience for our volunteers who are valued partners in the success of our students. We greatly appreciate your willingness to invest your time and efforts into supporting Plano ISD students, families and staff. If you have any questions, please contact askPISD@pisd.edu.
Summer is a great time to start working on a Reflections project! I Matter Because... is the new theme for 2020-2021.
Students can choose from six categories: Dance Choreography, Music, Literature, Photography or Visual Arts. More info here.
The Plano ISD Council of PTAs annual Back to School Splash at Hawaiian Falls scheduled for Sunday, September 6, 2020 is still happening but in a modified form due to the coronavirus and the unique times we live in.
This year there will be no private PTA party in the evening, no cabanas for PTAs, and no official PISD Council of PTAs presence at the water park that day. $5 from each ticket purchased goes to the PTA designated at the ticket window that day--be sure to say you are with Plano West PTSA! The discounted ticket price offered is the best ticket price available for a one day entry.
Hawaiian Falls is open at 50% capacity and has Covid-19 measures in place that can be found on their website. This is for Hawaiian Falls in The Colony, not the Garland location. The park is open from 11:30am-6pm on 9/6.
