Pep Rally - All parents and visitors who plan to attend the Cobb Pep Rally next Thursday, January 26th at 3:00 p.m. in the Cobb gymnasium MUST have a photo visitor badge.

If you have already had your driver’s license scanned into our database this school year, please email Janelle Davis (receptionist) at davisjan@friscoisd.org with your first and last name so she can get your photo visitor badge ready ahead of time. The deadline to email Mrs. Davis is noon on the day of the pep rally. Any guests who email her after that point will not have a pre-printed badge and must check in to have a badge printed. If you have NOT had your driver’s license scanned this school year, please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the pep rally to have it scanned. All pre-printed visitor badges will be in the office on the day of the pep rally. Thanks for your help!! Go Cyclones!
