Special Messages

New Schedules on Monday - All students will receive a new class schedule when they arrive at school Monday morning. Students should report to the following locations for schedule pickup.


  • 6th Grade - Cafeteria
  • 7th Grade - Small Gym
  • 8th Grade - Large Gym


Carpool Lane Reminders - Thank you for following the proper procedures for dropping off and picking up your students. Please review the maps to keep our kids safe and the carpool lanes running smoothly for everyone!


2016-2017 Bell Schedules - Cobb will operate with two regular bell schedules this year. One schedule will be used on Mondays and Fridays. A different schedule will be used on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in order to incorporate Twister Time at the end of the school day. Please refer to these schedules when arranging appointments for your student or preparing to join him/her for lunch.


MyPaymentsPlus - If your student is planning to purchase cafeteria meals, please make sure you have money in his/her account before Monday. Login here to check your balance or add money.


Medications: Please bring medications your student will need for the school to the clinic. Per FISD policy, student are not allowed to carry medication on them to take as they want. This includes Tylenol, Motrin, headache medication, cold/allergy medications, cough drops, supplements, vitamins, etc. Inhalers carried by the student MUST have a signed release from their doctor. Please help us keep all students healthy and safe about this.


6th grade parents only: If you have NOT turned in an updated shot record for your student, please go ahead and send those in now. I will let you know later in the school year what the requirements are for 7th grade entry, but would love to see the latest and greatest record for your student. The last time a shot record was required was when they enrolled (kindergarten), so we need to see what they have had since then. Records can be faxed to (469) 633-4318, emailed to HodgkisK@friscoisd.org or dropped off at school. Don’t worry now about what they will need for 7th grade, this is just to bring us up-to-date. Thank you!
