Lone Star Football Coach Nominated for National Coach of the Year

Lone Star High School football coach Jeff Rayburn has been selected as the Dallas Cowboys’ nominee for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year. The award, named for the winningest coach in NFL history, honors football coaches for character, integrity, leadership, dedication to the community, commitment to player safety and on-field success. Lone Star finished 12-2 last season and advanced to a 5A Division II regional final.


Bad Weather Information

With winter weather upon north Texas, thoughts of possible school closings due to bad weather come to mind. Student and teacher safety is a top priority for Frisco ISD. When inclement weather is predicted, school officials will make the decision by 6:00 a.m. the day of a possible closing based on the current and predicted weather and road conditions. When dangerous conditions exist, we ask parents to listen to the news on the radio or television stations and to check the FISD website, Facebook or Twitter accounts for potential changes in the regular schedule. An email will also be sent to all FISD parents in the case of a school cancellation.


School Board Recognition Reception

Students, parents and community members are invited to join FISD educators in recognizing the contributions of School Board members during a reception before the regular Board meeting on January 8, from 5-6 p.m. at 5515 Ohio Drive in the Administration Building lobby. The annual event is an opportunity to recognize Board members for their dedication to our school district and service to the community. The event will include light refreshments and entertainment.

Frisco ISD Sports Teams Had Long List of Achievements in 2017

The District had several teams and individuals win state championships last year, including the Wakeland boys soccer team and the Liberty girls cross country team.
