It’s always a great idea to check out the calendar, bookmark this post or download the calendar itself so you can plan any trips, surgeries or kids’ appointments to avoid them missing school, especially at the higher grade levels.
We’ve translated the Plano ISD calendar for you to give you a cheat sheet of important dates and what they mean. If your child is of school age, this is a must!

Tips for Understanding the Plano ISD Calendar
Look out for those dates in mustard yellow color. Those are Staff Days and Student Holidays, which also include federal and state holidays.
Usually, they allocate them to extend another block of days, but occasionally they are random dates (like April 22)
Also, look out for those Student Early Release dates (which are indicated by a green outlined box). These are usually the last day of the semester, before an extended break – December 21 and May 24.
(Side note: on Early Release dates, be sure to check if your campus is offering lunch to students before they leave and also check what time your campus lets out. Elementary, Middle, High, and Senior High school campuses usually differ)
Finally, check out those Inclement Weather Days. In the last few school years, we have used those to make up for lost days when school was canceled (remember those snow storms?)
If we don’t have any weather cancellations they remain on the Plano ISD Calendar as student holidays.
Be sure to keep signed up on your campus’ PTA and school email lists, as they’ll notify you of any decisions or changes that are made on those.
