The Board of Trustees election is coming up in May, but before voting happens, ballot order must be drawn. The drawing for ballot order is on Monday.

Bringing drug awareness into the spotlight, the Frisco ISD Council of PTAs and the Frisco ISD Guidance and Counseling team are holding their first parenting event of the school year on Wednesday at the Frisco ISD board room from 6:00-7:30 p.m. 

“I think it’s important to spread awareness about the early warning signs of drug use,” sophomore Prashubha Kamble said. “I think it’s important to stop the habit at the primary source and prevent the kids from [continuing to] use [drugs] when they’re older.”

Frisco ISD families have the opportunity to learn more about the dangers, early warning signs, and prevention strategies for students regarding alcohol, vaping, marijuana, and fentanyl.

“As an athlete, I think it’s important to stay away from drug use because the teenage time is when you reach the peak of your sports career,” sophomore tennis player Sarayu Alluri said. “And once you start drugs, it can end your career and impact your health: it’s known that drugs have ended some really promising careers.”

The Frisco Police Department, as well as local experts from the medical and mental health community, will present and answer any questions that families might have. Families interested in attending must RSVP for the event. This can be done by going into the Liberty High School calendar and clicking on RSVP. 

“[High school] is the time where a lot of students start thinking about drug use,” Alluri said. “But once they know the effects and how harmful these drugs can be, they can prevent themselves from drug abuse.”
