Walk to School DayWalk to School Day

Students and families across the nation walked to school on October 6th in celebration of National Walk to School Day. The City of Frisco along with the Frisco Police Department and Frisco ISD came together to help students walk to school safely. Walking promotes physical and emotional health, and it's a great way to teach safe pedestrian habits. Fifteen schools in Frisco, ranging from elementary to high school, participated in the event.

Watch a video featuring Phillips Elementary and Stafford Middle School and see how they pulled out all the stops to make it a fun morning. 

Pedestrian Safety

Learning and practicing proper pedestrian habits are important life skills. With students returning to school, keep an eye out for the school zone flashing lights both in the morning and in the afternoon. Watch a Pedestrian Safety video and learn tips to help students get to school and back home safely. Together, we can make our community a safe place to Walk ‘n Roll.

Safe choices can make a big difference in preventing injuries among teen drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

  • Respect the school zone.
  • Put away technology and stay alert. It is against the law to text while driving.

​What is an RRFB?


The City of Frisco has installed a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at several middle school crosswalks. The RRFB alerts drivers that a pedestrian is ready to cross the street. The RRFB uses bright yellow lights that flash when a pedestrian pushes the crosswalk button. Read more about this supplemental warning device (PDF).
