We are grateful for your support and honored that you partner with us in providing an extraordinary education for children.

RENOVATIONS

CAMPUS UPDATES

Two Frenship elementary campuses were renovated during the summer of 2018 with new walls and flooring throughout the buildings. As part of the 2014 bond project list, attention was turned to the North Ridge and Westwind campuses. The walls, which were once a dark brown wood paneling, didn’t allow for much natural light in the hallways. With the enhancements, they now have a refreshed look and feel. The new plastic laminate wall panels are shades of light gray and blue allowing for a much brighter, more open space. The color scheme and material used are the same as the walls of Frenship’s newest elementary campuses, Upland Heights and Legacy. The decision was made to perform the interior renovations to these two campuses to ensure facility equity. Goals for the future are for renovations to be made to more elementary schools to the newest color scheme and material. The LVT flooring that was used in the renovations will help with sound absorption and has minimal maintenance cost which will benefit the district.

TECHNOLOGY

Frenship installed interactive touch displays at all pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classrooms. This height-adjustable touch display allows teacher demonstration and student interaction with digital content going beyond the keyboard and mouse. The new “touch labs” include the same touch-screen technology used in computer labs at each campus. These new technology tools are a part of multiple strategies to meet the needs of diverse learners designed to engage students and provide personalized, technology-empowered, deeper learning experiences that build life-long learners.

SAFETY & SECURITY The safety and security of Frenship students and staff is of utmost importance. Emergency preparedness is ongoing, and the district adjusts procedures as necessary. What is emergency preparedness and what does Frenship ISD prepare for? Emergency preparedness for a school district involves four elements — prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. Frenship has established a District Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) that provides procedures and processes for all these elements. Frenship has developed a great relationship with local emergency law enforcement and personnel in the city and county. The district works with these agencies to develop emergency plans. Frenship prepares for a wide range of events and crises. What will Frenship ISD do in the event an emergency occurs while school is in session? The specific actions taken by Frenship will vary depending on the nature of the emergency or crisis. Every emergency or crisis is different, but the district assures parents that they work with and prepare staff for an emergency situation. All Frenship students and staff participate in the practice drills that the district completes in preparation for emergencies.

Our district puts our learners first.

STANDARD RESPONSE PROTOCOL

LOCKOUT

Students return to inside the building and remain there. Teachers gather students and staff from outside the building, increase situational awareness, take attendance to account for students and remain in the building.

LOCKDOWN

Students move away from sight and maintain silence. Teachers lock classroom doors with the lights out, move away from sight and maintain silence, wait for first responders to open doors and take attendance to account for students.

EVACUATE

Students bring phones, but leave other belongings behind, form a single file line, show hands and are prepared for alternatives during the response. Teachers grab roll sheet if possible, lead students to evacuation location and take attendance to account for students.

SHELTER

Students use appropriate hazards and safety strategies (depending on hazard). Teachers use appropriate hazards and safety strategies and take attendance to account for students.

HOLD

This is not an emergency response. Students remain in classrooms until “All Clear� is announced. Teachers close and lock classroom doors, conduct business as usual and take attendance to account for students.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

TIGER BITES

At Frenship ISD, the Tiger Bites program works to provide both federally-funded and donation-based food assistance to any child and family in Frenship that may need assistance, no questions asked. Over summer months in 2018, Frenship partnered with Aramark and non-profit organizations to provide meals across four sites, including two campuses and two Lubbock city parks. This program is leading the way in the state of Texas by pioneering the use of parks as feeding program sites. In addition, Frenship’s church partners, led by First Baptist Church of Lubbock, provided more than 3,000 weekend food bags to Frenship students through the 2018 fall semester. Finally, along with the Rotary Club of Lubbock, FBC Lubbock and other partners, Frenship provided more than 300 backpacks of food to students who need extra support over the long holiday break.

UNITED WAY

Frenship has always been committed to the Lubbock Area United Way and its 23 partner agencies that provide incredible services to the people of the South Plains. Dr. McCord serves on the Board of Directors for the United Way and is a co-founder of their Women United program connecting women to important issues like child abuse and providing mentoring to young women in the area. Frenship is also committed to supporting the United Way financially. Frenship staff set a new giving record of $50,417.72 in 2018, an 89.8% increase over the previous year.

VOLUNTEERISM

Frenship hosts opportunities for staff and students to give back to the community through fundraisers, collection drives, volunteer activities and time dedicated to service. Below are some of the non-profit organizations that benefit from the time and talents of Frenship staff and students.
