Hoverboards are growing in popularity among students within the district. However, these transportation devices will not be allowed on school grounds as the school district has banned them.

The district sent a message out on Wednesday asking that students refrain from bringing hoverboard to any campuses. The notice reads as follows:

“We wanted to inform you that Frisco ISD will not be allowing hoverboards on Frisco ISD property. Documented fires have occurred in the use of these devices while charging, as well as during use. Other organizations have also banned their use/presence due to fire risk, including many airlines. If students bring a Hoverboard to campus, the parent will be contacted to pick up the device, as it cannot remain on campus due to the possible risk. This includes all makes and models of Hoverboards. As always, the safety of students and staff is our top priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding.”
