Frisco ISD will not need to make up the missed school days from last month's storm, according to a district newsletter.

This comes after FISD decided at the March 1 board meeting to apply for a Texas Education Agency waiver that permits school districts to excuse the days missed during the February storm.


On March 3, the Texas Education Agency approved FISD's application.

The district's bad weather days, April 5 and April 23, spring break, and last day of school will remain unaffected, Assistant Director of Communications Meghan Cone said in an email.

Spring break is scheduled for next week, March 8-12, and the last day of school is scheduled for May 21.
