Business owner Michelle Moore said reopening came with mixed emotions. “It was a hard decision, and some- times I still question [it], but we’d had so many customers wanting to come in and to shop,” said Moore, the owner of Scout & Molly’s at The Shops at Legacy.

moving to remote learning. As of May 12, the district saw about 6% of students not participating in remote learning for varied reasons, including Internet connectivity issues. The district’s IT department has provided support, and counsel- ors are also preparing to work with higher-risk students when school resumes. Among the district’s main priori- ties has been keeping its workforce ready for when students return to school, Bonser said. The district passed a resolution in April to allow continued payment of staff. Families and students have been given school supplies by the Plano ISD Education Foundation, and more than 260,000 meals had been distributed as of early May. Internet access has been provided through Park and Connect opportunities at schools and by continued deploy- ment of internet hotspots, Williams said. Anyone with ideas on how to help or who would like to be engaged in helping the district can view oppor- tunities to do so on PISD’s website.

Remote learning may or may not have a place in the district after the coronavirus pandemic, Bonser said. While it works well for some, it may not for others, she said. “Remote learning, while we’re doing OK, is really not a one-to-one replacement for what happens with teachers and students in the pres- ence of content and great teaching,” Bonser said.

Being flexible has been a strength for Plano ISD as it has faced chal- lenges associated with online edu- cation, district staff said at a virtual town hall April 30. That flexibility will continue to be a priority as the district prepares for a summer and fall of uncertainty. “We will transfer all of our new learning into being smarter and bet- ter and more effective, whatever the future looks like,” Superintendent Sara Bonser said. Since PISD shifted into the third phase of its online learning plan, in which grading guidelines were determined for students, the district has focused on supporting learning from home, PISD Chief Operating Officer Theresa WIlliams said. “We want to make sure that the focus is ... providing [students] with continuity of learning but then also

During the virtual town hall, Superintendent Sara Bonser likened Plano ISD to a city or state with many moving parts. Preparing the district to reopen means addressing the needs of all of those components, which include the following estimates.

Plano residents get fast start in census count

Early census results showed Plano residences eclipsing statewide and national response rates.

The homelessness prevention funds will be overseen by the Assistance Center of Collin County, the city said in a May 12 message to residents. Other nonprot groups would admin- ister the homeless housing assistance. The city said it would post more information on these programs on its “get help” page when it becomes available.

PLANO A greater share of Plano residents have already responded to the U.S. census survey than have all but a handful of the largest cities and suburbs in Texas. Plano had the fourth-highest census response rate among Texas cities with at least 100,000 residents, according to the federal census department.

“AS AHUMANBEING, HOWCAN I SEE A FELLOWHUMANAND THEYHAVE KIDS, TOOGO HUNGRYWHILEMYKIDS EAT?” RAMMEHTA, OWNER OF INFRETTA URBAN PIZZA BAR

Anyone in need can call or stop by to pick up free pizza or pasta from either In-Fretta location. The only information required is how many family members need food so that In-Fretta can prepare the right amount. Similarly, at #EveryoneEatz events, anyone who shows up can take as much pasta as they need, no questions asked, owner Ram Mehta said. In-Fretta closed its dining room and began serving food exclusively through window service in March. (Courtesy In-Fretta Urban Pizza Bar)

Business has been down between 70%-80% during the pandemic, but Mehta said he is more concerned with feeding those in need. “As a human being, how can I see a fellow human—and they have kids, too—go hungry while my kids eat?” he said. In-Fretta has partnered with WellHealth DFW, Sara’s Market & Bakery, the O’People Foundation and 1 Solar Solution, among other groups, to distribute roughly 5,000 meals each week and oer services, such as free testing for COVID-19. The more Mehta serves food to those in need, the more passionate he becomes about giving, he said, adding that he expects to continue his mission and hopes that others will follow his lead. “I’ve never seen anybody who became poor by giving,” he said.

The website, www.everyoneeatz.com, allows people to buy pizza for someone who needs it. Customers can also donate to the cause by buying wristbands with the hashtag #EveryoneEatz. In-Fretta owner RamMehta said he began the #EveryoneEatz movement about two years ago after promising his dying mother that no one would leave his restaurant hungry. The need for food has never been greater than it is now, he said. In-Fretta moved to a window service-only model at its Plano and Irving locations three days before the state required restaurants to close their dining rooms, Mehta said. Around the same time, Mehta posted online encouraging anyone who was struggling nancially to come by for free food, no questions asked. Mehta then began hosting events for people in
