Gov. Throckmorton awaits vote in McKinney TX

Doctor James W. Throckmorton will find out if he is moving out of historic downtown McKinney in November.

A vote is expected in next 30 days but won’t be before the Nov. 3 general election.

In the meantime, Throckmorton remains camped out at the old courthouse on the square.

Historic note: Throckmorton entered the State Senate as a Democrat, and he opposed Texas leaving the Union.

Citizens of McKinney erected a statue to honor Throckmorton. The inscription says “A Tennesseean by Birth, a Texan by Adoption.”

Stay tuned.

Plano ISD health screening reminder #covid-19

From Plano ISD

Health Screening Reminder for Families

Now that students are back in buildings for face-to-face instruction, we need your assistance in keeping everyone healthy and safe. Parents are reminded to please take a moment each day to monitor your children’s health and do not send them to school if they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. No one should enter a Plano ISD school or facility if any of the following apply:

  • Sick with symptoms that could be COVID-19. Symptoms to watch for: fever (100°F or higher), cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, fatigue, congestion/running nose, nausea/diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell.
  • Has a confirmed case of COVID-19 or has been in close contact with a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19. These individuals must follow all isolation and quarantine guidelines from the local health authority or their physician.
  • Has a household member who is awaiting COVID-19 test results, or who is awaiting their own test results.

If any of the above conditions apply, the COVID-19 Student Reporting Form should be completed. Students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will be permitted to return to school when:

  • They are 24 hours fever-free without using fever-reducing medication; and
  • Symptoms improved (cough, difficulty breathing, etc.); and
  • 10 days have passed since symptoms began

If a student wants to return to school prior to meeting the above criteria, they must obtain a medical professional’s note clearing them for return based on an alternative diagnosis or receive a negative PCR or antigen test.

Thank you for helping to keep our students healthy and safe.
