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.

Plano TX: Heritage Farmstead Museum reopens to public; reserve small group, personalized tours

Heritage Farmstead Museum will reopen to the public on Wednesday, Sept. 2 after months of being closed because of COVID-19. Small group tours will be offered in two formats, which will allow guests to visit the grounds and experience all the farm has to offer while still ensuring the health and safety of all.

“We are eager to welcome guests back to the farm,” said Heritage
Farmstead Museum Executive Director M’Lou Hyttinen.
“Our team has worked hard to offer creative and new ways for guests to explore the farm in a safe and comfortable way.  We look forward to seeing you soon!”

The farm will offer limited capacity general grounds admission for $5
per guest on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Purchasing
tickets in advance is suggested, but walk-up tickets are also available.
Guests may tour the grounds, feed the farm’s free-roaming chickens,
learn from educational displays posted around the property and explore
the exterior of the buildings on the property.  A house tour is not
included in this admission option.

Guests are encouraged to bring a book or picnic and linger to enjoy the farm’s idyllic four-acre site.

In addition, the farm will offer limited capacity personalized tours of
the farm’s Ammie Wilson House and Young House on Fridays at 10 a.m.,
10:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. for $10 per guest.  Tours last about 75
minutes and also include the general grounds admission features listed
above. Farmstead house tours are self-guided and begin in the Ammie
Wilson House. This grand house is the center of the farmstead and
exemplifies life on the Blackland Prairie in the early 1900s.

The current exhibit celebrates the 1920’s and all of the fashion, glamour
and glitz of the era. Guests will also tour the Young House, which was
built in 1880. It features a new exhibit depicting an early rural Texas
home, pre-electricity and plumbing. This visit option concludes with a
hay ride through the farm, allowing guests to observe the beautiful
gardens, various animals, working blacksmith shop and other features of
the property.

Since the museum abruptly closed in March, 10 new lambs have been added to the farm’s livestock. A new pig has also joined the friendly animal
menagerie.  The farm’s chickens are also now free roaming on the
property during tours, allowing all guests to feed the feathered flock.

Masks are required inside all buildings at the Heritage Farmstead
Museum, as well as in other spaces when interacting with people outside
of the guest’s immediate family.
