Feb. winter storm days will not have to be made up

While school was closed the week of Feb. 15-19 due to the winter storm, the Frisco ISD waiver has been approved by the TEA to not have to make up those missed school days.

Every year, Frisco ISD builds in two bad weather make-up days, that are usually placed on the calendar in April.

However, with the winter storm that cancelled school Feb. 16 through 19, there was a chance Frisco ISD would have had to attend school on those days.

But the Texas Education Agency has approved a waiver request from the district, which means students and staff will not have to make up any of the missed days from Feb. 16 through 19.

That means April 5 and April 23 are still bad weather make-up days, and there will be no school for students and staff unless further bad weather comes our way.

With April 2 a holiday, that means the first weekend in April is a four day weekend, and the last full weekend in April will be a three day weekend. 

The last day of school remains May 21.
