SCHOOL SECURITY CONTINUES TO BE TOP PRIORITY

Frisco ISD is reevaluating its security measures in light of the recent tragedy in Florida and national conversation taking place regarding school safety.

Parents, students and staff should know that the effort to enhance security on campus is an ongoing, continual process, and does not take place solely in response to incidents in other areas.

The District works closely with local police and fire departments to coordinate prevention and response activities and will continue to collaborate regarding best practices and implement policies and protocols proven effective in reducing risk.

DEVELOP THE WHOLE CHILD

In an effort to share common language and enhance support for Frisco ISD students, the Guidance and Counseling Department is launching a monthly focus on one positive character trait or skill. The handout will provide parents, teachers and community members with talking and practice points to foster personal growth.

The subject will be the topic of staff discussion meetings each month as a part of FISD’s focus on the whole child. Lessons will also be given to teachers for student meetings and advisory time.
