School at Home Support Group

If you are looking for a support group during learning at home, you might be interested in joining Plano ISD School @ Home SPED Parents Group . Please note that there is no direct PTA affiliation with this group.

School Supply Sales

This is the last month to order school supplies!  This must be done through the website, HERE.  The extras will be sent back to the supplier at the end of the month.  We will try to keep a few extras but cannot guarantee we will have what you need.

Volunteering at Huffman

We need a Grade Level Coordinator for 5th grade as well as a few PTA Chairs.  Any volunteers will need to complete the Volunteer Application through Plano ISD.  See our Volunteers page for more info!

Our Principal, Jamey Allen

We are so lucky to have Mrs. Jamey Allen as our Huffman Principal!  

Mrs. Allen started teaching when she was 21 years old, and she has been in education for 25 years!  She started teaching in Illinois and then came to Plano and spent time as a teacher, Instructional Specialist, Assistant Principal, and now Principal.

She has two kids, Ella and Zane who are both amazing soccer athletes and her husband, Randy, works in software.

Mrs. Allen is full of enthusiasm and pours so much time and energy into making Huffman the best place it can be!  We love that she is always available to help and answer questions.  Be sure to wave hello if you see her around the building!
