The window to request a learning environment change is now closed. The next opportunity to change learning environments will be in November in anticipation of the second semester that begins in January.


The next opportunity to request a schedule change will be at the end of first semester in December. At that time, the only courses students may request to drop are full year AP/PAP courses or programs (athletics, band, orchestra, choir, etc.).

Knight Boosters

Frisco ISD No-Cost Meals

The USDA has issued a nationwide waiver that allows Frisco ISD to offer no-cost meals at all campuses beginning October 1 through December 18, or while USDA funds are available. There is no need for students to do anything, simply go through the breakfast or lunch line. Snacks and extra beverages will still be sold a la carte. Having your barcode or school badge ready to scan before you get to the cashier helps to keep the lines moving quickly. If you don’t have either, simply give the cashier your ID number.

Student Technology Device Support

If your student has trouble with a FISD device that was checked out for virtual learning, please log into the student portal and click on the device repair tile. They will complete the form and technical support will contact the parent/student for further assistance.

Technology Help

Tech help for Seesaw, Google Classroom, Canvis, login information, etc. resource information can be found by clicking on Virtual under the instruction button on the main FISD page. Choose Technology resources from the menu on the left side of the page.
