New School Year Begins with COVID-19 Protocols in Place

Frisco ISD is kicking off the new school year with students learning both on campus and online. Classes began today for the vast majority of students, while classes begin Monday for the more than 8,200 students in sixth grade and under who opted for the temporary online learning option.

COVID-19 protocols are in place on campus, with a few notable additions in recent days. Per new state health guidelines, FISD is required to exclude students from school who display symptoms consistent with COVID-19 until criteria for readmission is met. Additionally, FISD will excuse absences of students who choose to stay home after a positive case notification in their classroom or school. Next week, FISD will also begin publishing weekly reports of positive cases and cumulative totals by campus on the District website.


Bond Projects Completed Across the District This Summer

The District’s 11th high school opened its doors to students today. Emerson High School sits on FISD’s far southeastern edge and is home to the Mavericks. A number of other bond projects were also completed this summer, including significant renovations and upgrades at Curtsinger and Smith elementary schools. Plus, construction is almost complete on a new swimming and diving facility that will double the pool and locker room area currently available to FISD swimming and diving programs.


Tickets Available for Fall Sports Events

The 2021-22 sports season has begun, and it’s important for fans to know the new FISD ticketing procedures. For all sports other than varsity football, ticket sales will be digital through the free TicketSpicket app and there will be no sales at event ticket windows. For varsity football, tickets will be sold through the free AXS app and there is a discount for purchasing tickets before the day of the game.


Apply Now to be Considered for District Committees

Frisco ISD is looking for parents and community members interested in volunteering their time on several District-level committees. The committees provide critical stakeholder input on a variety of topics. Committee openings are filled throughout the year, though those interested in the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC), Long-Range Planning Committee (LRPC) and Legislative Leadership Committee (LLC) should apply now. The deadline to be considered for the SHAC is August 27, and the deadline is Sept. 1 for the LRPC and LLC.
