Few observations about the commute:
- I've used both Tollway and Preston extensively, and both will take a minimum of 30min on a good day to over 45 min on a bad traffic day. Of the two, I prefer tollway as it always seems to be a bit quicker and a bit less "stressful" to drive vs Preston
- there was once or twice I used Ohio as both Preston and tollway had pretty bad accident congestions.
- Get acquainted with google maps or Waze for traffic accident monitoring. I always check on my phone right before I leave and avoid the route with the accident backup
- My work is in Plano and coming back up north on tollway is a breeze.
- pickup in the afternoon is traffic free and "fast" both ways. Using tollway, the actual driving is a little more than 20 min each way.
- we're looking to move south of 635 as I don't think this commute is sustainable long term, mainly for the sake not having the kids spend so many time in the car. We have a younger one that will be going to school in the same vicinity soon.
- the other reason for living closer to the area is the extracurricular stuff. Things like school events, parent volunteering, sports teams, birthday parties, and play dates with others in the class will all be south of 635. The weekend events are not as big a deal, but stuff that happens on weekdays usually take more logistical planning.

Thank you 2URGSE! What neighborhoods are you looking at south of 635? I keep trying to look at maps and it just isn't helping. ��. Is Richardson a viable option?

We live at Preston/Parker too! Creeks of Willow Bend more precisely!
Do you live in my neighborhood?
Thanks for the tips on traffic.

We're looking at homes in the following zip codes: 75229, 75230, 75225, 75244....with a soft boundary of Midway to the west and Northwest highway to the south.

I don't know too much about the neighborhoods in Richardson , but it would put you slightly more south than west Plano, but you will also be more east.

We got the packet yesterday with the acceptance letter...
There was a white elastic band included in the packet, what's that for? Anyone knows?
Thanks

Don't the Hockadaises often wear white headbands/hairbands?

It's a headband.

Does anyone know when we start getting all the pertinent information? I tend to be a planner so I want to get all my ducks in a row.
