Eighth-grade students will take the Math STAAR exam on Tuesday, April 9th (unless they are enrolled in Algebra 1) and the Reading STAAR exam on April 10th.


Students participating in STAAR exams will be expected to bring a sack lunch from home on testing days unless they pre-order a sack lunch from the Cafe in advance using the link below. Sack lunches ordered from our Cafe will be deducted from your student's lunch account. Eighth-grade students who will test on April 9th and 10th will receive the same lunch option for both days. Parents have until Friday, March 8th to pre-order a sack lunch from our cafe for April STAAR testing days.

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.
