The Plano ISD and City of Plano Back to School Fair was sponsored by Credit Union of Texas (CUTX) and presented along with participating agencies Lovepacs, Minnie's Food Pantry and the Plano ISD Education Foundation.
While there was not an official headcount provided yet from the city or school district, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Monday night, the hallways and community rooms of the Plano Event Center were jammed packed full of parents and students. The parking lot of the event center was at near capacity, and there was a line of cars waiting to enter on both Spring Creek Parkway and Jupiter Road.
At the event, parents were able to get free dental and vision screenings for their students, along with immunizations, if needed. Lovepacs and Minnie's Food Pantry passed out a box of shelf-safe food items to each family, and approximately 2,000 backpacks were made available to students who attended the fair, full of school supplies. Parents were also able to enroll or register their student for the 2022-23 school year.
