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.

Growing business: TUPPS Brewery increasing production in McKinney TX

Congrats to Tupps Brewery in McKinney, Texas. #TUPPSBrewery has announced it will relocate and expand its campus to the historic Mill District of downtown McKinney.

The campus will include a tasting taproom in the original grain milling building, a state-of-the-art production facility and a retail shopping area featuring local craftsman.

The McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) and the McKinney Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) will contribute to the project.

McKinney Mayor George Fuller said: “The City of McKinney is committed to revitalizing the eastside of our historic downtown area, and I could not think of a better partner than TUPPS to be the catalyst. TUPPS will bring much needed energy to this area that will attract other businesses and expand our historic downtown footprint.”

MCDC has approved a grant for $11,333,262 to fund the construction of the facilities. According to the agreement, TUPPS Brewery will be a tenant on the property, paying rent for at least 30 years toward its purchase of the building improvements.

MCDC will own the 4.3-acre parcel of land where the project will be developed.

“TUPPS has a strong commitment to the community and continues to enhance our city’s quality of life through live music, family-friendly events, and entertainment,” said MCDC President Cindy Schneible. “This project will create a world-class cultural and entertainment destination for residents and visitors alike.”

MEDC contributed approximately $600,000 for the expansion of manufacturing and production at the new site.

MEDC President Peter Tokar said “Craft Breweries are those unique assets that enhance the quality of life and add that extra level of experience opportunities with the variety of events they offer. The creation of the McKinney Grain project will take the ‘cool factor’ of experiential development opportunities to the next level with the amenities that are part of the development. We appreciate the continued investment that TUPPS has made in our Downtown McKinney District and are happy to have been able to support them as they have grown over the years.”

TUPPS Brewery is the 15th largest craft brewery in Texas has grown from producing 350 barrels a year to annual production of 7,800 barrels in 2019.

More than 10,000 barrels will be produced in 2020 and growth is projected to reach 15,000 barrels in 2024.
