Frisco ISD special considerations
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Frisco ISD is not offering its Gold Card for senior citizens to attend district activities free of charge this year. However, existing Gold Card members can get free tickets to varsity football games played at home by visiting the FISD Athletic Office. Gold Card members can purchase a yearlong subscription to NFHSNetwork.com for $30 at the athletic office to watch live broadcasts of Frisco athletic events.
