Inclement Weather

Troop 1000 follows PISD’s recommendations when it comes to canceling meetings. When PISD cancels school and after-school events, we will cancel our meeting.

When there is no school, such as Martin Luther King. Jr. holiday, the Troop will make a decision 30 to 60 minutes before a meeting. Then we will send a cancelation notice through Twitter.

If you don’t receive the Twitter notices, this is a good time to do that. You don’t have to be a Twitter user to get the notifications. Here are the instructions on how to get Tweets from Plano @Troop1000.
