• Email Express for Week of Sept. 13

     
    Welcome to the fifth edition of Email Express, the communications tool utilized by Princeton Independent School District. It is distributed weekly to keep you informed. Districtwide events are featured at the top, followed by a section for each campus to make information easier to navigate.
     
    We encourage suggestions on how we can improve our communications, so feel free to email jcollins@princetonisd.net with your ideas.

    Tickets:
     
    Visitor tickets for the upcoming Rock Hill High School vs. Princeton High School game at 7 p.m. Sept. 17, are available now online.

Gates open at 6 p.m. To purchase your VISITOR TICKETS go to the link below.
     
     
    Construction:
     
    Frontier Road (directly in front of the stadium) is under construction. Because of detours that affect all westbound traffic, it is highly suggested you take the North Dallas Tollway all the way to Frontier. This will allow you to travel east on Frontier and avoid all detours. Spectators arriving after 5:30 will see Prosper ISD police officers directing traffic. Visitor parking is on the east side of the stadium.
     
    Clear bag policy:
     
    Prosper ISD has a clear bag policy for its stadium.
     
    Concessions:
     
    Prosper concession stands accept both cash and credit cards and will have a full menu, including hot foods.
     
    NFHS live stream:
     
    Prosper plans to live stream the game through NFHS.
