Family Fun Night!

Parents! Please mark your calendars for Family Fun Night on Tuesday, March 19th! Please join us in an entertaining and interactive come-and-go night event at Clark! This is your opportunity to participate in collaborative games and activities all over the building while enjoying complementary hot dogs and drinks while they last. We will also have Dillas food truck and Kona Icee on-site for your convenience as well! They will be accepting cash/card for payment. We hope to see you and your student(s) there! Please visit our school website and Twitter account for more information.

PRIDE Store Needs Your Help

Our next PRIDE store will be held on March 27, 28 and 29. At the PRIDE store students are able to redeem Dojo points. We would love to have parents help us make this a great reward for outstanding student behavior in two important ways.

  1. You could volunteer an hour or two on store days to help us get students through the lines smoothly. Contact Stacey Binegar at binegars@friscoisd.org if you are interested.
  2. If you can’t make it for store days, you can donate items for the store. Some most requested items are: lunch sized containers of Pringles, Takis, fruit roll-ups, gushers and ring pops. Please label all donations “Pride Store – Mrs. Binegar” and drop them off in the front office.

Nurse's Corner


Attention 6th Grade Parents:

Over the next several weeks, Nurse Thornton will be going through shot records and if any immunization is found to be missing, this letter will be mailed home. You can email, fax or drop off an updated copy of your student’s shot record to the school at any time. The updated shot record is not due until schedule pickup in the fall. Please note that your student will not be able to pick up their fall schedule without an updated shot record on file and your student will not be allowed to attend school without an updated shot record on file.

Please let Nurse Thornton know if you have any questions at thorntok@friscoisd.org or 469-633-4608. Her fax number is 469-633-4628.



Flu Notification:

Parents, please let the school know if your student has been diagnosed with the flu and what type. You can email the data clerk peterssons@friscoisd.org or the nurse thorntok@friscoisd.org with the information. Please make sure the doctor’s note states all dates your student has missed or will miss. The doctor’s office can also fax the note to 469-633-4650.


  1. Please see the FISD School attendance guidelines for when to keep your child home from school here.
  2. See ways to protect yourself from getting sick here.

Frisco ISD Family Wellness Festival
